Rock Island, IL - About Our Campus

This campus is Quality Rated and Nationally Accredited

The Rock Island Campus has ALL staff Teacher Qualified! When your child attends Skip-a-Long in Rock Island you know he or she is getting high-quality, educational care. Congratulations to our Rock Island Campus!

This campus, set in a residential area, was originally designed to serve the children in the neighborhood. It has since expanded to serve the full community and is considered an anchor in Rock Island.
