Children and their Families

CAP is committed to providing opportunities for children and their families to reach their highest developmental potential through physical, spiritual and emotional support. CAP seeks to support and nurture parents as the child’s primary caretaker and educator. Parents involved in their children’s education, as well as continuing education goals of their own, creates an environment conducive to the learning and growth of the whole family.

Lessons learned in the early years will be carried by children for the rest of their lives – children who learn to feel positive about themselves and to feel a sense of responsibility for themselves and their peers will become more likely to recognize their full potential as teenagers and adults.
