Lindner is an entrepreneur, author, and child advocate who founded The London Day School, a school for children in preschool through kindergarten, in 2010. She saw a need for an enriching, challenging and socially engaging program for young children with a specialty designed curriculum that incorporates character education into a scaffolding approach to learning. Lindner's program develops essential academic skills as well as children’s social and emotional intelligences.

In addition to running The London Day School, Lindner is an author who places great emphasis on character education. She has written a children’s book series which reflects that. "Miss Danielle’s Preschoolbuds" is comprised of 16 books and addresses everything from sharing to facing your fears.  The series was recently developed into a 7-episode television show and both the shows and the books are available on Amazon.
