Providing a Pathway of Care

As your child grows, Playschool provides a Pathway of Care with programming appropriate for each age level and developmental need. We offer full-time, part-time and drop-in care options for all ages.

For school age kids, we also offer:

  • Before/After School Care
  • School Days Off Care
  • Summer Recreation Program


Skills For Life, Inc. offers innovative programming for youth of all ages, developmental abilities, and behavioral dimensions. We work closely with families and other support networks in helping to provide support and consistency with a child's overall goals and needs.


We are open Monday through Friday, from 6:00 a.m. to 6:15 p.m., except on holidays, staff development days, or during emergency weather conditions.

Qualified and Caring Teachers

All of our teachers and staff take classes to fulfill continuing education requirements for child care providers, and are certified in:

  • CPR
  • First-Aid


Meals and Snacks

Nutrition education is integrated into our programming everyday at Playschool.  We help children to understand the relationship between food and good health.  Playschool kids are offered food every two hours and carry water bottles, learning the importance of good energy and hydration throughout the day.  Meal and snack times are also opportunities for positive social behaviors to be learned and practiced.   Appropriate manners and social conversation with others are daily habits!
