What Is Early Education
The Early Education Department (formerly known as the Child Development Program), established in 1943, is the largest provider of early education and after-school services for children in the City and County of San Francisco.
The Early Education Department (EED), in addition to being committed to the SFUSD overall mission, is committed to providing high-quality early childhood education services for children in a safe, caring, and nurturing environment that promotes each child’s social-emotional, physical, and cognitive growth and competency through appropriate experiences. The department validates the cultural and linguistic heritage of each child and supports families in maintaining their children’s physical and mental health.
The Early Education Department supports the SFUSD PreK-3rd Grade Initiative and supports our families with students in Transitional Kindergarten through 5th Grade in our Out Of School Time Programs.
The San Francisco Unified School District Early Education Department does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, color, or ethnic origin in the administration of education policies and opportunities. EED does not include religious instruction or worship.

Tips for Busy Parents
- Visit your child’s classrooms and meet his/her teacher.
Supervisor Mark Farrell’s fondest memories of growing up in San Francisco always come back to playing ball with his friends and neighbors on the colorful yards of his local school. Years later, balancing one son on his hip, the other holding his hand and his daughter pushing ahead, Farrell tried to enter his local schoolyard, Roosevelt Middle School. This time, a heavy lock barred them from the schoolyard. The hopscotch chalk marks, the painted four-square lines and the winding slides were left untouched while the Farrells walked back home.
