Kripa Montessori is a school where children FLOURISH. Our son has been going to the Bartlett location for 3 years and we could not be happier for having chosen this school to start his education! He is in one of the Kindergarten classes this year. He is reading, writing, doing addition, has been introduced to world geography and the solar system, and has had Spanish, Hindi, music and art classes. The Montessori model also has focused on his social and emotional development, and I am happy to know that as a five-year-old, our son embraces cultural and linguistic diversity. His first teacher worked wonders to help us potty-train him, as well! In addition, my husband and I are very happy with the prices. We are so happy with Kripa that we are sending our 2.5 year-old to the Hoffman location in August. TWO THUMBS UP!
Levi has been at Kripa for just over half a year now. I am so impressed with his progress, and he seems so happy and well adjusted. I know a lot of this has to do with his teacher. She is wonderful with him, and I can tell she cares for him so much. I know when I pick him up at night, he has had a good day and that he has been loved and comforted--something that is so important to me as a parent. Not only is he happy, but his vocabulary has expanded and his social and motor skills seem advanced (but I may be biased!). I just wanted to express my gratitude for Kripa and [the teachers] for playing such an important and wonderful role in Levi's life.
Our kids have attended the Kripa Montessori School in Bartlett for almost 2 years now. Before selecting this school, we did a lot of research. At the time we selected Kripa for our children, I was a Village Trustee in Bartlett. I was aware they were a very well respected business in the community. Our son has anxiety issues, and we were very concerned about the changes. The teachers and staff at Kripa worked great with him and he had no issues with the transition. At the time we enrolled the kids, our son was really struggling with potty training and he was actually afraid of going into the bathroom to even try. We did research and did everything we could work with him on it. Within a week of being at Kripa, he was not only no longer afraid of the bathroom, he was completely potty trained. We have been very happy with the choice we made to trust our kids with the staff of Kripa Montessori. Our kids have been truly enjoying their time there for the past two years and have made some real friends. Above all else, they have learned an incredible amount while attending Kripa. I would recommend it for any family looking for quality child care and an amazing learning environment
You are my first teachers. I am really proud to say that with cheers! You are all very caring & lovable. And you made my time in Kripa wonderful! I will be missing you all.
Thank you for helping Andy learn to use the potty! I appreciate how responsive the teachers are to Andy’s emotional needs. He feels safe at school.
We appreciate the care and education Joshua has received at Kripa. We speak highly of the quality of education and care Kripa provides and will continue to do so.
You are doing a very good job. Keep it up! We are very pleased and satisfied with Ronit’s progress after joining Kripa.
I am beyond excited I found this school. My daughter was in a public school, but with all the cuts in IL, kindergarten only went for 2.5 hrs. I was not to thrilled about that and I decided to put her in private school. This school rocks. I love the staff and they truly care about your kids. It’s extremely affordable. I will continue to keep her in private school.
We would like to thank you for the patience & kindness you have shown Sanjana through the school year. As her parents, we very much appreciate the fact that you have helped create a warm & non-intimidating atmosphere, one which fostered the desire to return to school every single day - even on days she was sick. She has certainly learnt quite a lot but, the fact that she is happy at school, is the most gratifying for us.
My Husband and I are so happy that Neil is enjoying pre-school. It is not easy to send your child to school, leaving him in the care of people not familiar to you, but the teachers and staff of Kripa have made Neil feel like as he is at home. He wants to come to school every day! And we know we have to thank you and the entire staff of Kripa.
Thank you so much for taking such great care of Charlie over the past 2.5 years. Joe and I have been very impressed by how well the school is run. When we leave, we will take with us many many good memories! We truly feel this has been a great place for Charlie’s education and he’s had loads of fun too!
My daughter and son started Kripa in Jan 2011. My daughter has been to Goddard and at the time transferred from Schaumburg Christian School (Pre-K) while Kripa was my son's first school (Pre-3k). I had apprehensions since SCS left a high bar to exceed. However, Kripa has surpassed my expectations in every way. With my 3 yr old son, I was concerned because at the time we enrolled him, he wouldn't recite the alphabet or even count to 10. Now he reads, writes, adds, subtracts, knows all countries, states, capitals, and solar system at age 4. I owe his progress to his teachers. When I come to pick him up from school they rave about him like he was their own. My daughter recently graduated kindergarten at Kripa and leaves with an abundance of knowledge in geography, math (multiplication and division), science and reading. The best part is Kripa also placed a great significance in learning of the arts (dancing, drawing, singing, etc). She is prepared for the 1st grade with confidence and balance. All in all, I couldn't be happier. My best compliment is the staff treats the kids like family. They are not concerned about profits but making sure your child shines...and they will. I'd be happy to be contacted for references. If only all parents knew about this gem!
