Life at C5

Experience Life at C5

We take nutrition, health, and safety as seriously as learning, playing, and exploring. Whether we’re organizing fun and exciting events or implementing robust health and safety initiatives, our staff takes the necessary steps to help your child learn and grow in a safe, well-balanced environment. As one of the top preschools in San Francisco, we look forward to working with you to cultivate a nurturing, immersive, and rewarding experience for your child.

Health & Safety

Our health and safety programs keep children and their families exceptionally healthy and safe in a medically protective, educationally rich, emotionally supportive, and stimulating environment.

Festival of Learning

Enjoy a glimpse of our most recent Festivals of Learning. Each year, we examine how children learn and develop best and refine our teaching processes, support materials, and environments. Then, in the spring, we present our findings and examples of children’s work.
