SKIP is an after school program that is designed to provide healthy physical and academic activities, social and emotional development and artistic opportunities for students.

The Goals of the SKIP program are:

  • To provide a safe haven, before and after school hours and on school holidays.
  • To provide working parents with the emotional security of knowing their children are well cared for and supervised.
  • To fulfill the needs of the elementary child by providing an environment in which children can develop the social and emotional skills needed in adulthood.

Daily Structure:

Developmentally appropriate activities are carefully planned for each PM schedule. They generally include:

  1. Physical Activity Time - free or organized physical playtime to encourage good health habits via outdoor/indoor activities and games, nature explorations, etc.
  2. Snack & Social Time - a nutritious snack is included in the PM program.
  3. Social Interaction/Project Time - Collaboratively or individually, students build, draw, craft, paint, read, play board games and interact with one another in a variety of projects intended to expand their social skills and their creative horizons.
  4. Homework Time– an opportunity to begin homework assignments with a teacher or aide nearby to encourage good study/work habits

The SKIP program provides reasonable accommodations for students with special needs. It is helpful for the staff to be aware of children whose medical, physical, learning or social disabilities require special consideration. The accommodations are made in the context of existing staffing rations and program organization, but do not extend to substantial modifications in the child care purpose, cost, or availability of appropriate supervision for all participants.

Safe Kids In Parsippany provides quality care before school and/or after school for your child in a safe and nurturing environment. Children must be enrolled in the ParsippanyTroy-Hills School District.
