Child Development Center
RurAL CAP’s Child Development Center in Anchorage provides full-day, year-round child care for kids between the ages of 19 months and five years. Our approach embodies the belief that a child’s growth must be understood and built upon by the family.
Our center enriches children through various activities, lessons, and meals, continually bolstering each child’s growth on a day-to-day basis. We divide children into two classrooms, one for 19 to 36 months and one for 36 months to five years of age. Healthy meals and snacks are provided on site in compliance with the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). Our system of education promotes physical, cognitive, social, and emotional development.
We recognize that child development begins at home and welcome family participation every step of the way. Family members may join the Parent Committee and actively participate in decision-making and activity/event promotion. Our teachers communicate daily with parents and invite all families to eat lunch with us on site. We also participate in the Strengthening Families Initiative that aims to eliminate child abuse and neglect. To increase accessibility, we offer an open enrollment policy and a sliding tuition scale.
