SKIP About Our Program

About Us:

The PACE program operates under the auspices of the Parsippany-Troy Hills Board of Education and includes a before and after school childcare program called SKIP that provides quality care and enrichment for K-8 children enrolled in the Parsippany School District.

Our Staff:

Our qualified and caring staff of teachers and aides plan, supervise, guide and provide a wide variety of activities for your children to enjoy. Every permanent staff member is certified in First Aid and CPR. They encourage the development of self-esteem, cooperation, problem solving, leadership and social skills. Your child will not only be in good hands; he/she will also be making good use of that valuable period called out-of-school time.
