About Us – College Station Day Care Programs

In 1981, Syed and Muneer Hyder left all they knew behind to chase the American Dream. They had left India several years earlier and after spending some time in the United Kingdom, they decided to settle down in College Station, Texas with their young family and high hopes for the future.

Muneer Hyder was a teacher whose mission was to positively impact the lives of young children. The couple decided to buy a small run down day care center and invest all of their time and energy into making it into one of Bryan’s best pre-schools. Kiddie Castle Children’s Center was the result of that commitment to the education and nurturance of young children.

Over the next several years, the family worked diligently together to expand Kiddie Castle into several locations, including south College Station. This location, was later, converted into a Montessori school that we now call Southwood Learning Center.

Southwood Learning Center has been serving the children of BCS since 1985, first as Kiddie Castle and then later as a Montessori school, SWLC. We are honored to be members of the BCS family for over 35 years. Today, the family of Kiddie Castle-Southwood Learning Center schools are proud to be second generation owned and operated preschools.

Come see us today and experience the difference in our family owned and operated school, with an internationally recognized Montessori curriculum.
