Site Locations/Times
In partnership with the Greater Albany Public School District, CAP enrollment consists of hundreds of children ages 5 to 12 years at multiple public school site locations. Please see Locations for a list of current operating sites. We offer childcare before school starting at 6:45am and after school until 6:00pm. CAP offers full-day care at selected sites on vacation days, in-service days, winter, spring and summer breaks. All vacation/in-service days are billed separate from regular program usage.

Staff & Program Activities
Certified and competent individuals who care about children and are committed to providing quality care staff our sites and plan for age-appropriate activities that are enjoyable and stimulating for your child. The morning program mostly consists of crafts, homework assistance, quiet games and gym activities. The afternoon program is filled with cooperative games, crafts, stories and other exciting activities. Special programs such as reading centers and Homework Clubs are also offered throughout the program.

We are continually seeking ways to improve our program and always welcome new ideas. We have found parents to be a great resource in providing information and skills around talents or hobbies. If you have a special skill or hobby that you would enjoy sharing with the children, let us know (restrictions apply).
