General Information About Robindell Private School

Robindell Private School has been a family owned and operated business for over 60 years. The philosophy of our center is to provide a safe, healthy and nurturing environment for your child, as well as being available at a moments notice day or night. We were the first childcare center in Houston to offer 24 hour/7 day a week childcare beginning in 1981, and we feel strongly that we are still the best at providing this service. It has been privately owned and operated by the same family since 1976, and has been primarily operated by the schools lead Director Chuck Wall since 2001.

Over the past 20 years Robindell Private School has grown into the largest single location childcare facility in the state of Texas, and we are very proud of the services we provide our customers. We are open 24 hours 7 days a week, and provide security guards on site each night from sunset to sunrise. Robindell is open all holidays with the exception of Easter Sunday, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

The caregivers at Robindell are among the most experienced in all of Houston. We understand that a childcare facility can only be as good as their teaching staff. We are proud to have extremely low staff turnover. The majority of our staff have been at Robindell for 8 years or more.

Each caregiver must possess a current CPR and First Aid certification along with a minimum of 20 hours of professional development training each year. Because we are a Designated Center with The Workforce, we are held to a higher standard which requires a percentage of our staff to have obtained their Child Development Associate, Associates Degree or Bachelors Degree. Our staff is encouraged to attend professional training conferences in our community. Our staff is very qualified and highly motivated to provide you the best possible care.
