About the CAP Program

The CAP program is a thematic play-based extension program that aims to allow teachers time to focus on teachable moments and augment individual problem-solving situations in a relaxed and child-sensitive manner.  The CAP program provides families with an opportunity for their children to remain in their school for a full day.  Students enrolled in the CAP program will: Follow the same school calendar and schedule as a full-day student.  Students will be transported by arrangements made by parents at the start of the school year. Have a 30-minute lunch/recess break between the sessions.  Participate in daily activities that may include outdoor play, crafts, music and movement, free-choice centers, and three additional specials per six-day cycle.
