Preschoolers at North Beach
TEL HI’s California-licensed preschool offers a fun, safe, enriching environment that will prepare your children to embrace a lifetime of learning! We are one of the top-rated preschools in San Francisco by San Francisco Quality Connections, a citywide quality rating service that observes early care and education programs in San Francisco (to view our most recent assessment scores click here!). Oh, and did we mention we’re open all day to assist working families? You can count on TEL HI Monday through Friday, 7:30 am–6:00 pm, all year long.
Additional highlights include:
- A pre-literacy curriculum to prepare children to read
- On-site playground, gymnasium, garden, and kitchen
- Daily, homemade, hot lunches for all
- A staff that speaks English, Mandarin, Cantonese, and Spanish
- Financial help for low-income families
Our teachers and children come from many different nationalities and diverse socioeconomic backgrounds. Children are grouped by age: “Seals” are 2.9–3.5 years old and “Dolphins & Jellyfish” are 3.5–5+ years old. You’ll rest easy knowing that we focus on your child’s needs, interests, and learning style. We help children play and work together, exercising their minds and bodies, and developing their creativity.
