Technology at work for you EXPERIENCE A SCHOOL CREATED BY PARENTS FOR PARENTS Ivy Kids was founded by Al and Laila Bandali in Pearland, Texas in 2003, it was established to provide an alternative to other childcare providers. Disheartened by the childcare offerings available to them, Laila and Al decided to take the challenge on themselves and create a learning center which would combine academic excellence and innovation with a nurturing and joyful environment. Currently, Ivy Kids serves children ranging in age from six weeks to six years old. Our schools are also proud to offer after-school programs and holiday camps for children up to twelve years old. In just a few years, Ivy Kids has grown into one of the most trusted preschool providers, offering premier education programs for children and families.

PA R E N T TESTIMONIALS “We just enrolled our son at the Richmond Ivy Kids location for Summer Camps and after the 1st week he told me that he wants to be the first kid there every morning. As a parent, it feels good to know that he is enjoying everything that they have to offer.” Raphael and Janice Randal – Houston Methodist, Leading Medicine “The reason I keep my children at Ivy Kids is because the well-trained staff sees every child as an individual. The teachers are calm and loving, and use child-specific methods when motivating or redirecting the kids.” Suzanne Gschwind “When we arrive to pick our son up he doesn't want to leave. He has made many friends and has taken some great field trips. We were so pleased with our experience at Ivy Kids that we’ve recommended it to friends.” Mark & Kimberly Snow “Cameras in the classrooms allow us to watch our children throughout the day. Our preschooler has excelled under the direction of the qualified and caring staff. The after school program ensures that our second grader completes his homework and still has time to play.” Tho & Rod Miller “Ivy Kids is the epitome of education! When my 3-year old girls walk into the doors of Ivy Kids, we are relaxed by the comforting and loving professional staff. My girls are respected, loved and inspired to get their young little minds working! Thank you for all that you do Ivy Kids!!!” Katie Spencer, Health Education-Seven Lakes High School Katy, Texas
