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


Carlen D’Larenti

Hello Ivy Kids families!

My name is Mrs. Carlen D’Larenti and I am very excited to join the Ivy Kids family at Summer Lake Ranch. As an Early Childhood professional, I am proud to stand with a school I personally believe has one of the best educational pathways for our students.

I am a mother of two boys and I love each and every muddy, baseball filled, fishing moment of it! My family is from beautiful Costa Rica and I love to travel. I attended school to join the medical field but, I fell in love with early Education.

My career in Early Childhood Education started over 10 years ago. As a Two’s teacher for four years, I truly enjoyed watching the cognitive development students show at such a young age. I also enjoyed learning so much from my students at their fun age! After completing my Two’s teaching career my experience shifted to a Primary classroom for ages 4-5. At this age my desire to grow in Early Childhood Education was only ignited more after experiencing such great minds yet again.

As a Director for the past 7 years, each and every day has been a whirlwind of experiences and accomplishments that not only I but, my teams are very proud of. I am proud to be a Texas Trainer, an active member of NAEYC as well as a member of the accreditation firm Cognia. School accomplishments such as completing accreditation, hosting major charities for our communities and professionally developing teachers in their Early Childhood careers are accomplishments we hold very dear to our hearts!

I firmly believe our teachers, staff, students and parents are a family! My goal as a Director is to contribute to the Ivy Kids family and school, we are all proud of. I look forward to sharing smiles, many hugs and of course new accomplishments with our Ivy Kids families.
