For Kids Entering Kindergarten through 5th Grade
TEL HI’s Elementary School Academy (ESA) helps families by providing support between the end of a child’s school day and the end of a parent’s workday. Our highly trained staff leads children through all sorts of activities, from tutoring and homework assistance to field trips, recreation, and even community service.
Over 100 school-age children from different cultures and all walks of life participate in the Elementary School Academy. This diversity creates a rich community where your child can learn from other children, and vice versa.
Additional ESA highlights include:
- A California-licensed program
- Trained staff to lead all activities with additional support from volunteer tutors
- Kids are grouped by age: K–2nd grade or 3rd–5th grades
- Extended hours on school day holidays
- A staff that speaks English, Mandarin, Cantonese, Tagalog, and Spanish
