Leander ISD’s Early Childhood Education services exist to build a strong foundation so that each child is ready to be challenged, encouraged and supported to achieve their highest level of knowledge, skills and character.

We do this by providing quality inclusive experiences responsive to children ages birth to five and to the needs of their families:

  • By developing strong community and family partnerships
  • By providing a high quality professional development system
  • By ensuring a seamless transition
  • By using developmentally appropriate, research-based and play based instruction
  • By creating a safe, secure, welcoming and positive environment for children and their families

Child Find (Ages 0–21)

The purpose of Child Find is to locate, identify and evaluate children from birth to 21 years of age and their possible need for special education and related services. Child Find is a free referral and information service available through local education agencies and Service Center Region XIII.

Children learn at different rates, but some children have significant difficulty. We’re here to help you access services to meet the unique learning needs of your child. If you are concerned your child may be learning, playing or interacting differently from others, please call our office at 512-570-0350 or email child.find@leanderisd.org.
