• Ivy Kids Early Learning Center is Houston’s premier education childcare center. Founded in 2005, Ivy Kids is still family owned and operated by the husband and wife team Al and Laila Bandali. Years ago, when Al and Laila searched for childcare for their two sons, they were unsatisfied with what the market had to offer. Motivated by their multiple attempts to find exceptional childcare for their children, Al and Laila decided to found a childcare center of their own that would emphasize early childhood brain development and excellence in academics. Today, the goals of Al and Laila remain the same and Ivy Kids has established itself as the premier choice for parents in the communities we serve

    Ivy Kids is a wonderful preschool! I have two children at this school. The teachers are great and they really work hard to make sure the kids have fun and stay engaged all day. I'm not sure what the other reviewers are talking about on this site. I have evaluated a lot of preschools in this area and Ivy Kids is one of the best!

    My son started at Ivy Kids in September and I absolutely love all of his teachers and the staff!  I was worried that he would cry, but the teachers are so nurturing and caring he did not even notice that I left.  Of course I watched on the cameras all day long at first (as I imagine any new parent would), but my son was always happy and being well taken care of.  My son has also learned so much in his short time at this school.  He is now doing things that's some of his older friends who stay at home are not doing yet.  It also amazes me at how almost every teacher (even those who are not in my sons class) know his name and almost all of the kids names.  I can't even remember all of the names of the kids in his class and there are only 10 of them.  The teachers are so much like family that I have already put my unborn child on the waitlist.  Honestly, I can not say enough positive things about this school.  I sure am glad I found them!  I highly recommend this school to anyone.

    Ava comes from a few different daycares - and all were good - but NEVER has she been in a daycare where she is always anxious to get to school every single morning. She talks about her friends and her teachers constantly!!!

    Ms. Madeline is obviously doing something amazing with her kids. She obviously loves her job and takes much pride into her classroom. The classroom is immaculate; her daily sheets are up for parents to see; everything in her classroom is in order, all the time!

    At Ivy Kids Early Learning Center, your child is our number one priority. With best in class facilities and a curriculum that emphasizes early childhood brain development, we will help maximize your child’s academic potential in a fun and nurturing environment.

    The Ivy Kids Preschool Program will prepare your kid to excel in pre-kindergarten and beyond. Our pre-school program builds confidence for the next big adventure – school.

    Pre-Kindergarten Program

    Our Pre-Kindergarten Program is developed to accommodate each individual child’s learning style.  Our teachers use a curriculum customized by Ivy Kids’ Education Directors to accelerate your child’s reading, listening, and speaking levels. Our priority is to work with parents and make sure Pre-Kindergarteners feel challenged but confident to enter Kindergarten.
