In an effort to help our community, Skip-a-Long will be providing Emergency Child Care for ONLY Illinois essential workers as listed in Governor Pritzker’s Executive Order. Skip-a-Long has been issued an Emergency Child Care license by the Illinois Department of Child and Family Services to provide Emergency Child Care services. 

To enroll in Emergency Child Care, parents must be essential workers, employed at Illinois essential businesses, who are unable to work from home and have no other child care options.

If you are in need of care, you will need to fill out an Emergency Child Care Enrollment Application. If you cannot download the application or have questions on enrollment, please call the Moline Skip-a-Long Center at 309-764-8110.

1. Download the Enrollment Application. Complete all required information.

2. Review and sign both the DCFS Handbook and Skip-a-Long Family Handbook.

3. If you need help paying for child care, and need to apply for the Illinois Child Care Assistance Program, also complete the IL CCAP Application (English) or IL CCAP Application (Spanish) . (If you are already approved for IL CCAP, with any child care provider, you will not need to re-apply).

4. Email completed documents to Site Director, Mary Rosa-Gastaldo, at mrosagastaldo@skip-a-long.org at least one day prior to your child’s requested start date.
