The Theresa S. Mahler Early Education School is located in the Noe Valley neighborhood of San Francisco. Our community provides a safe learning environment that respects, cherishes and encourages the individual learner for his or her own uniqueness, while honoring diversity, providing the child with a sense of belonging, and nourishing the individual’s developmental and learning style.

We strive to build positive relationships with parents and families and offer joyful, engaging experiences for children to explore, experiment, and be challenged and motivated to become successful lifelong learners. We are a Head Start site that provides additional support services to families, such as screening of children, and parent education workshops.

The center has two regular child development classes and one special education class. The diverse student population reflects the cultures of this city. We integrate a strong literacy component throughout the daily schedule. We have embraced the Creative Curriculum framework, which is aligned with SFUSD and the Early Education Program Department's goals and priorities, and we emphasize a rich print environment to support literacy and dual language learning.

The center provides a safe, high-quality nurturing environment where a child’s educational journey in the school district begins, and where respect for the individual is valued.
