Infants, Toddlers & Preschoolers

At TEL HI, families can count on having a safe, stimulating, nurturing environment for their kids. Our California-licensed Infant Program, Toddler Program and Preschool serves a total of approximately 90 children, ages 4 months–5 years old, every day. To support our working families, both programs are available all day, every weekday, all year long.

Each year we provide about 124,000 hours of service to preschoolers. Here’s a glimpse at the diversity of our youngsters:

  • Almost a dozen languages are spoken in our preschool
  • 40 percent of our preschoolers are English Language Learners
  • About half of our preschool families receive financial aid while half do not

Our pre-literacy curriculum prepares children for school, adapting to each child’s interests and learning style, fostering creativity and fun. It is not unusual for families to send multiple generations of children through our programs. Many kids literally “grow up” with TEL HI. Our engagement with a single child sometimes lasts for 10 years or longer!
