C5 operates two early childhood development and learning centers in the Civic Center area of San Francisco. Both of our centers’ buildings look onto City Hall and City Hall Park. They are our SF City Building Center, housing children who are infants through pre-kindergarten; and, our CA State Building Center, housing children who are toddlers through pre-kindergarten. The centers are in blocks across the street from each other and a block away from San Francisco’s Civic Center Plaza. Both sites are accessible to Muni light rail on Market Street, BART at the Civic Center Station, and city buses 47, 49, 31, 5, and 19.
