Ivy Kids of Summer Lake Ranch

Meet the Owner


Vikram & Mona Kapur

Life has been an exciting roller coaster ride for our entire family. During Vikram’s employment in the Oil and Gas industry, our family had lived in 10 different countries over the past 25 years. In each new country, our foremost priority was to find a good school for our children with strong academics and an overall stimulating environment. Both our children successfully integrated in each new location, made new friends, learned new languages, appreciated different cultures and developed into well rounded world class citizens of today. Our older son graduated in 2015, magna-cum-laude, from St. John’s School and is studying Computer Science at Rice University. Our younger son has completed his sophomore year at St. John’s School and will graduate High School in 2019

Children are our passion and we have placed the highest importance in providing a safe, loving and caring environment – both at home and at school. With our kids grown up (& still growing!), we feel it is our time to give back to the community, having established our roots in Houston since 2014. In pursuit of this goal, Mona went back to teaching at a Montessori School in February 2016 and found joy in the company of children.  We found the right partners in the founders of Ivy Kids, who shared our vision to develop the qualities of strong family values, honesty, integrity and leadership during a child’s most impressionable years. By opening an Ivy Kids Early Learning Center, we have a wonderful opportunity to provide a safe “Home-Away-From-Home” for the children. Our research based curriculum is focused on developing multiple intelligences in a fun-based creative setting. At Ivy Kids,the future starts now for today’s children to become successful and responsible leaders of tomorrow!

Meet the Director


Savannah Wamsley

Hello, my name is Savannah Wamsley and I’m pleased to introduce myself as the Director at Ivy Kids Summer Lake Ranch!


I was born in Jackson Mississippi but raised in San Antonio Texas. My family relocated to Houston in 2010 and I’ve fallen in love with the diversity in the Houston community. My husband Wesley and I have been married for four years but have been together for eight. We share and daughter, Bristol and a son, Christian. After being a stay at home mom and nannying I decided that I loved the aspect of childcare.


From 2013 until now, I’ve held many titles and gained experience as a lead teacher, curriculum director, assistant director and director. I’m thrilled to be a part of the Ivy Kids family. I can’t wait to meet you and be a key part in your child’s development and academic journey!


Meet the Education Director

Emily Knesek

My name is Emily Knesek, and I am the new Education Director at Ivy Kids Summer Lake Ranch.

I am so excited to join the team, so I wanted to introduce myself!

I grew up in Buna, Texas and graduated high school in 2010. I then moved to Huntsville where I attended Sam Houston State University and graduated with my BA in Communications with a concentration in Broadcast Journalism.

After college, I started working for Texas Department of Family and Protective Services – Child Care Licensing division. I investigated abuse and neglect cases within childcare facilities. However, after having my daughter in 2015, I decided to become involved in a more positive career field and started working in childcare management.

I have been married to my husband since 2014 and we have a spunky 4-year-old daughter named Ellie, who also will be attending Ivy Kids with me. We have three dogs and two cats and we love spending time outside and hanging out with our neighbors.

Thank for for this amazing opportunity. I am so excited to to grow with Ivy Kids, and I will do my best to ensure that your child is getting the best quality childcare experience!
