Linder Young Learners Academy (also lovingly known as LINDER) is a locally owned and operated business providing preschool and Private Pre Kindergarten education to children beginning at age 6 weeks through 5 years, in Northwest Houston and surrounding areas. We also excited to offer an engaging after-school program for children through age 12. In addition, we offer two clinic rooms that specialize in children with Autism. Our Learning Lane at Linder program serves learners with autism or other language delays ranging in ages from 12 months to 7 years old.

As experienced and knowledgeable academic professionals, it is our goal to ensure students and families the very best early childhood education and foundation for transition to their next educational experience!

We take pride in providing the academic and social framework needed for each child when entering their next level of school.  Each program is specifically designed to ensure that the basic skills are mastered, per the Texas Essential Knowledge of Skills, while supporting each child as they grow and bloom.

Absolutely love our new childcare facility. Just left parent-teacher night and I’m excited about our daughter’s school year. The staff is welcoming, professional, and knowledgeable.
