Preschoolers at North Beach

Due to COVID-19, we are now implementing cautious measures to keep our children and staff safe. For more information, please contact Connie at We are following updates and guidance from the City of SF closely as we plan for the future of our programs. Thank you for your consideration and understanding and we look forward to seeing you soon.

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:

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.
