Sunset Center

Serving Toddlers and Preschool Children

Our Kai Ming Head Start Sunset Center preschool in the charming Parkside Neighborhood is located just steps from Sunset Boulevard and the Taraval trams. In its two classrooms, our teachers serve 36 children from 08:00 a.m. to 04:30 p.m. We have multilingual teachers and promote deeper family engagement. We value positive relationships among families, children and staff. This cozy center is housed in the previous home of the Knights of Columbus.
