First LePort San Francisco Campus: 50 Fell Street in Mid-Market Area
Our initial preschool campus will be in the Mid-Market area, at 50 Fell Street, just one block from the Van Ness Muni station and one block off Market Street. At this campus, we will offer programs for toddlers and preschool children; we are still investigating the possibility of adding an infant program at this site as well. We are thrilled that our first campus will be in a beautiful, historic building, with bright rooms, high ceilings, and, importantly, a large courtyard area with old-growth trees where the children will be able to play in a natural setting in the middle of the city.
We expect to open this first campus by fall 2014, once we receive all the required approvals and complete an extensive renovation of the school building, and to ultimately bring LePort’s entire program up to 8th grade to San Francisco. We are actively investigating additional sites near San Francisco downtown, with easy access to BART/Muni, as well as in Noe Valley, SoMa, Portrero Hill, Mission, Castro, and Pacific Heights, to expand our program to infants and to elementary—Montessori program levels currently very underserved in San Francisco.
