Indoor Areas

Our newest center at 49 South Van Ness in San Francisco has three classrooms within 4,000 square feet of interior space. There are two Toddler Classrooms that will accommodate 12 children each and one Preschool–Pre-K Classroom that will accommodate 24 children. The exterior walls are all floor-to-ceiling window walls providing spacious, sun-lit views of the surrounding buildings and neighborhood.

Outdoor Areas

The third floor outdoor Terrace is 6,400 square feet of open-air, soft decking, dedicated play space for only C5 children, staff, and families. It is directly accessible from all of the classrooms. Each classroom will have its own storage facility, and there will sheltered areas for gathering and play away from the sun and rain.

We expect to outfit the terrace with a wide range of exploration and play items; materials; equipment; large fruit trees; bamboo plants; small vegetables, herbs, and flowering plants; a sand box area; large wagons and trucks; special garden areas; and climbing structures for toddlers and preschoolers.

Children will go outside regularly twice a day for approximately two or more hours.
