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 and the spacious outdoor terrace play area.

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 accessible only by the center’s doors and spacious outdoor promenade walkways from all three of the classrooms.

The Terrace is being designed and outfitted to be a garden-like environment with many natural elements. During our first year of operation, we expect to outfit the Terrace with a wide range of exploration and play items, materials, equipment, and plants. A few planned elements are: large trees, bushes, bamboo plants, flowering plants, and a vegetable and herb garden. Additional elements will be logs and stumps; a sand box area; water play equipment; children’s wagons, carts, and trucks; and, custom built climbing structures for toddlers and preschoolers.

Each classroom will have its own storage facility, and there will be large and small sheltered areas for gathering and play away from the sun, wind, and rain.

Children will go outside regularly twice a day for approximately two or more hours of supervised open play.
