About TEL HI’s Early Childhood Education Program

TEL HI’s Infant, Toddler and Preschool (ITP) programs is one of the top rated programs in San Francisco, with 5 different class rooms! We offer a state-licensed, full-day program for infants and children ages 3 months to 5 years old. We provide a safe and nurturing environment that encourages physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development through a developmentally age appropriate curriculum. Our philosophy is child-centered, rather than adult directed. Curriculums are realized through structuring the environment into interest areas and planning program activities to meet each child’s individual needs! We encourage active participation rather than passive observation. As an educator you will have the opportunity to pass on your love of early childhood education to eager young minds so that they can develop their social skills, enhance their fine and gross motor sills, engage in creative learning, and learn pre-literacy skills.
