Program & Assistant Program Leaders



CAP is a “mask optional” center, and we encourage parents and families, as well as CAP teacher staff, to determine whether continued mask wearing remains a best-choice option in addressing individual needs and circumstances. We invite all to be respectful and supportive of individual choice.
