CAPE Child Care Overview

  • The CAPE Child Care Center is the district-operated childcare center located at the Blaine Early Childhood Education Center. Any Anoka-Hennepin student can use the childcare center for their child, provided they meet the basic requirements of attendance.

    CAPE runs two separate classrooms, one for infants, and one for toddlers and preschoolers. A full-time director and several teachers are responsible for the care and education of the children. Education is tailored to each child's needs with a specialized lesson plan to encourage growth and development. Expecting parents can join CAPE's parent education classes and enroll in CAPE while enrolled at any school in the district.

    It is a goal of the CAPE Center to provide a safe, welcoming, and educational environment for both the young children and their teen parents so the emphasis can be on building strong families.

    CAPE is a Parent Aware rated childcare facility and more information can be found on the Parent Aware website.
