Q: Does C5 give individual personal tours of the Centers?
A: Yes, we do. If you are an employee of the State of California or the CIty or County of San Francisco, you may schedule an interivew and tour before applying online. We also schedule one Open House each month for anyone to attend who is interested in enrolling in our program. Click here for an Open House Schedule.
If you are a member of the general public interested in enrollment in our program and wish to have an interview and tour at a time other than during an Open House, we will schedule a private interview and tour only after you have applied online to be considered by us for enrollment. Once you have applied, we will arrange with both of you to come together, as parents or guardians, and meet at our mutual convenience for you to come for a single interview and tour meeting. If, in the meantime, you would like a virtual tour, simply click here: Virtual Tour.
These days, both parents are required to be in the interview and at the tour. In the past, we used to give tours to only one parent. They typically got excited and wanted the second parent to come for a tour and interview, so we were routinely giving two tours and two interviews to each family. We had to change our policy, and we did. Now, it seems, everyone is happier and better informed right from the start.
