BAKS is just steps from Albany's Solano Avenue and easily accessible from Interstate 80, as well as by bus or on foot from the UC University Village.  Find us on the map.  To view the BAKS facilities, please schedule a visit with our director Ute Dawe at, or come to one of our public events like the Laternenfest in November or Yard Sale in May during town wide Albany yard sale.

Our bright, open facility includes a generous, recently renovated outdoor area with custom made play structures to best fit our space, catering to "Füchse", "Hasen" and "Igel" alike.

There is a play house, a tree fort, a little climbing wall and lots of ropes to climb around on, as well as a slide and a pretend-boat sandbox.

The children help tend to our edible garden throughout the year, planting and harvesting flowers, herbs, and vegetables.

For our performances on special occasions, as well as just for pretend-play fun, we also have an outdoor stage.

The spacious indoors is a combination of intimate and open spaces, designed to host the wide variety of activities our program has to offer.
