Indoor Areas

In addition to the five fully equipped classrooms, there are also indoor play areas where children can go for special events when it is raining or to gain new perspectives. There are also Activity Rooms on each floor for special break-out activities where small groups of children can be loud or have quiet time, or experiment with light and shadow, or explore large wall-size projections. In addition, there are also spacious hallways outside of the classrooms, a soft-floored Commons Area in the center of the first floor, and the Gathering Spaces on the second floor where the preschool and Pre-K children have weekly Music Together sessions, Creative Movement & Dance, and develop large, long-lasting projects.

Outdoor Areas

The outdoor play area is located immediately next to the ground floor classrooms and along the wall at the grand entrance to the center. It is open to the air and sun, with high security walls and video monitoring by the San Francisco County Sheriffs, and next to a private seldom used alley. The outdoor play area is outfitted with protective canopies and a wide range of plants, other items from Nature, and a selection of items for creative play. It has a custom, built-in sandbox area, storage buildings, structural blocks, gardening items, sensory tables, water play items, a selection of exploration and play items, project materials, seating units, soft decking throughout, and or own custom climbing structures.
