Serving North Albany CAP Site Beginning October 4, 2021

CAP currently has enough staff to operate only one service location.  Taking into consideration a multitude of factors including licenses to operate, enrollment numbers, etc., CAP has combined two site locations, i.e., Oak Grove and North Albany CAP sites, into one single service location at North Albany CAP.

Staffing Shortage and Expanded Reopening Update

We anticipate opening a second single service area, again by merging two more site locations and repeating the process until all elementary schools are receiving child care opportunities.  Once all 14 elementary schools are being served at merged-site locations, CAP will continue to expand by separating those merged locations into single service CAP sites.

As soon as we have secured enough staff to open a second location, announcements and information will be sent via email blast and posted on our CAP website and Facebook page.

Opening a combined single site location at North Albany CAP has allowed us to care for the largest number of children possible under these staffing-shortage circumstances.  We are deeply sympathetic to the hardships parents and families are facing in meeting their child care needs.  We desperately wish to be your solution—now.  Families will not be billed until services begin at their CAP site locations.  We sincerely hope you will continue to hang in there with us as we reopen over a slow and steady course.

Please, we ask for your continued assistance in helping to spread the word that CAP is hiring.  Job postings can be found below.  We sincerely appreciate your extraordinary patience as we continue to recruit, hire, and onboard additional CAP staff during this season of unprecedented staffing-shortages.
