Founded by Al and Laila Bandali in Pearland, Texas in 2005, Ivy Kids was conceived to provide an alternative to other childcare providers. Disheartened by the childcare offerings available to them, Al and Laila Bandali decided to take the challenge on themselves and create a learning center that would combine academic excellence and innovation with a nurturing and joyful environment. Ivy Kids has now grown into one of the most trusted preschool providers in the area, offering premier early childhood education programs for children and families. Currently, the schools serve children ranging in age from six weeks to five years old, the schools are also proud to offer before and after-school programs for children up to twelve years old.

The Future
Ivy Kids has become the leading provider of premier care and education in the early childhood education field. In the past few years, we have opened several facilities around the Houston and Dallas area. We continue to grow and look forward to serving communities and neighborhoods all across Texas and beyond.


At Ivy Kids we believe all of our students are unique individuals and it is our philosophy to treat them as such. We believe in creating a “home away from home” for your child so that they can grow to their fullest potential in a safe and nurturing environment. Unlike other childcare providers, we aim to appeal to your child’s ability to develop their unique emotional, intellectual, social and physical intelligence. Lastly, when it comes to academics, Ivy Kids understands the importance of including families in celebrating your child’s achievements and developmental milestones. By creating and maintaining a strong relationship between home and school, the new skills your child will develop will soon become second nature.
