Who We Are

KLA Schools is a dynamic, developmentally appropriate program that is inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy of early childhood education. An inviting, respectful, and consistent environment, our goal is to provide a place where children's abilities, competences, and natural aptitudes are nurtured in ways that develop new and inherent talents.

Our educators believe in the child's competency and potential. They embrace children's ideas, points of view and participation in their learning experience. Our educators appreciate professional development in understanding more and more about the child's thinking and learning processes.

Children have their own strengths and interests, and when given the opportunity to share, they support the expansion of the knowledge of their peers and teachers. At KLA Schools, we offer children a place to become aware of their love for learning. Children are honored in our program and acknowledged as the protagonists of their learning experience.

What Makes Us Unique

Educational Approach

Our programs are based on a connection between children's ideas and the teachers' intention. From projections to provocations, the identity of the child and class is clear in all that we do. We believe children learn doing what they love!

Rich Learning Environment

Invigorating furnishings, stimulating materials, proper lighting, visible and inviting spaces and colors create places conducive to your child's learning needs.

Frequent and Open Communication with Parents

Daily journals, photos, a parent website and designated parent corner in every classroom allow our families to see what their child is doing and stay up to date on our latest events.

Endless Opportunities for Parent Involvement

In addition to regularly scheduled events including Parent Night, Parent Assembly, and Family Picnics, we also encourage family members to come into the classroom to share a story, project or experience.

Utilization of a Variety of Art Mediums and Styles

We encourage the creative and joyful exploration of each child's world by exposing them to clay, paints, tracing, cutting, the use of recyclables, natural materials, and more.

Family Atmosphere

Like becoming part of a family, the whole school, not just the teacher but all members of the staff, know your child.

Low Student to Teachers Ratio

Smaller class size and individualized attention has long lasting positive effects on children’s learning, especially when given this privilege during early years of education.

Educational Approach

We believe that all children have a right to high quality education. At the core of this concept is the child’s natural curiosity of their world coupled with a respect for the countless qualities and values that we believe each child is born with.

Testimonials

  • CORAL GABLES

    I LOVE this school! Their philosophy, their caring teachers, their clean and cheerful environment. I have both my kids at this school and wouldn't think of sending them anywhere else. I especially love how they see the whole child and meet each child where they are at. My oldest son is more introverted and shy. In a regular school program he would be labeled and made to feel there was something wrong with him. At KLA, my son's teachers work to help my son feel confident by creating experiences for him to interact and learn how to engage with students. They make him feel special and unique and embrace his gifts of kindness and art while developing new ones. I think the teachers are the best part of this place. I would work here if I could! They are professional and caring, knowledgeable and dedicated. They create programs for the children that are truly about garnering discovery and curiosity, truly the skills that children need and adults will use every day for the rest of their lives. We looked at a lot of schools before deciding on KLA and I can say they have exactly what we were looking for. A school program with the ability to get some after care and have additional activities for my kids to take after school, like yoga, soccer, kid-o-kinetics. Perfect place for your little one.

    We love the warm, embracing, creative atmosphere the faculty and staff initiate. I was so afraid when I went back to work that my three-year-old and one-year-old would be upset to go to school full-time. Instead, they were happy to be engaged in activities all day. A highlight of the year was the art exhibit! The school goes out of its way to create a sense of community.

    I knew I loved this school the moment I walked through the doors and your work only reinforces how much we were right in choosing this school and this approach. This is our child’s first year in KLA Coral Gables and she has already grown tremendously in the few weeks she has been here. Thank you for all that you do and all that you are… We are truly thankful to have our daughter in such a wonderful place.

    The classrooms are very well equipped with everything a child could need, for learning and they are kept immaculate.

    My son has been attending KLA for 2 years. It is a fantastic school. The kids are well cared for and have really become a family with the other students, teachers, and staff. They are taught to really think, and I am amazed with the educational progress that my son has made. I couldn't be happier with a school than I am with KLA.

    We have been part of KLA Aventura since the school opened in 2010. Although it was a tough start, Today, we wouldnt be happier. The school has an amazing staff and director. We have our 2 kids enrolled and they LOVE their school, their teachers, the environment. The philosophy is great, they get interested in learning and motivated by their peers and their own interests.

  • AVENTURA

    My little girl has been in this school for the last two years and she loves her teachers at KLA Aventura. I find this beautiful pre-k School to be an excellent option for my daughter because they have a curriculum that let the kids explore their creativity in a very small environment, enhance an intuitive learning and motivate the "out of the box" thinking in the students. In addition, the direct and open communication with the Director of the school and all the teachers is a very positive asset because they care about the individuality of each student.

    KLA Aventura is fantastic. Clean, friendly ... we couldn't ask for a better pre-school.

  • DORAL

    KLA is all about "caring....personal, one-on-one" individual care for my child...and for all the children there! The feeling that everyone cares is amazing! As a walk through the hall all the way to my child's class I get greeted by all staff (not only my son's teachers, but everyone else) calling him by his first name! I was particularly impressed to know my son's teachers made a special early celebration for "Father's Day" for a particular child and her father because they were going on vacation and would have missed the event!" I have never seen such consideration before...not to mention the teachers calling me on the day my son was out sick wanting to know if everything was okay with him... or to receive the daily progress notes handwritten by my son's teachers letting me know if my child ate his lunch, how many change of diapers he had throughout the day, or if he had a snack or a nap! What a relief for a mom to daily see this report and not wonder what happened to her child during the day...! I'm speechless to see their caring and genuine heart, their dedication and empathy not only to the children, but with us the parents......and definitely so touched by the many details they have with and for us the parents which we enjoy immensely (like all the pictures of our children and personal stories we miss but yet get to enjoy because of their time and effort!). I love KLA, my son's teachers, all staff and Pilar, the director, an extraordinary caring person! It has been a total blessing for my child and our family to begin his first childcare experience at KLA! Thank you KLA!!!

    I love this place! KLA has exceeded my expectations in every way. Jacob is growing and learning so much, and he is a confident, happy little boy. This is due to the environment at KLA and his teachers and the staff. I appreciate the updates every day and hearing about everything he is doing! KLA has been a wonderful home away from home for Jacob.

    Miss Tracy in the Nido room was the main reason I fell in love with this daycare center. The way she talks about the children makes you feel like she holds each one dear to her heart as if they were part of her own family. She is gentle and kind and the toddlers really respond to her! She's the toddler whisperer!

    Switching daycare facilities was a tough choice for our family to make. The staff at KLA was patient, kind and understanding throughout the process answering every question we had. In the end I am so glad we chose KLA! The staff greets us each morning at the front desk and they have worked to create a warm, loving and safe environment for the children. The food is healthy and organic. The teachers have a wide variety of activities to engage the children; they are patient and flexible and work hard to teach the children in a fun way to be respectful and curious in their journey of learning. The level of communication between staff, teachers and parents is more than we had ever experienced. It is nice to be so in tune with all that is going on throughout my son's day. What a great place for children to learn and grow.

    Alpa M.
  • PLAIN FIELD

    Switching to KLA has been my best decision ever. My daughter now begs to go to school even on days off! As a working mom, it is reassuring to know that when I drop my daughter off in the morning, she will be well fed (she loves the organic meals that are catered in), be in a loving environment, and explore/create topics that interest her. I am greeted each day by friendly staff and it is reassuring that they know and care about my daughter's well-being. KLA goes out of their way to create an organized, creative, unified school. The students all interact with each other as though they are a second family. KLA focuses on social skills, academics, and most importantly giving back to the community. My daughter enjoys being creative, learning Spanish, playing at the beautiful playground, and adores every teacher and staff member in the building. I look forward to checking her daily highlights on-line. This allows me to read about her day and see pictures as well (every parents dream!). She begs to stay longer and even wants to go to school when I am off work. KLA is everything that a working family could dream of plus more. I cannot begin to express how much our family and our daughter love KLA. Thank You!

  • PLAIN FIELD

    KLA has been a blessing to me and my family. My son Charlie did not enjoy the traditional setting that was offered at other schools. He is a unique boy who we think is extremely intelligent and we were so incredibly lucky to find KLA. The small class size and specialized attention has allowed our 5 year old to THRIVE. He is not limited to a structure and now in pre-school my son is adding, subtracting, writing cursive and excelling beyond belief. MOST IMPORTANT he is so happy to go to school and absolutely loves his teacher. He told me yesterday he accidently called her mommie. Administration has been extremely helpful working with me when I had questions or concerns. Everything is handled right away and with compassion and also promptness. I highly recommend KLA schools for all children and wish the program extended longer. The facility is always clean, the food is excellent, the supplies they provide the children are first class and most important the staff is caring, kind and lots of fun. Thank you KLA my son will never forget his experience here I only wish I would have been able to start him younger.

    After touring nearly every preschool in the South Miami area, a colleague suggested KLA. What a blessing! The school is wonderful in so many ways. Very safe and secure, clean and bright with beautiful décor: it feels so bright, happy, sunny and welcoming even on a gray rainy day. It is full of smiles, cheerfulness, and calm. What really makes it special are the people; so helpful, friendly, kind, happy and positive. My son loves it here and I am very grateful I found you!

    The teachers are fantastic at KLA and really foster student development. I feel that Kaysan has progressed far beyond his 2.5 years and that is mainly due to the nurturing environment provided at KLA. You emphasize the individual and provide opportunities for exploration that are invaluable to his development.

    So nice to leave my daughter at KLA school in the morning in great hands. She is happy and I couldn't feel safer knowing that every single person in this school is very kind. Thank you for the great work you all do!

  • NORTHBAY VILLAGE

    We looked at many preschools and ultimately decided on KLA for our infant. He started at 14 weeks in the Baby Nido class. We have recently moved to NC and had to leave the school; after only 6 months at KLA it became one of the hardest things about leaving our home of ten years. The school is impeccably clean and well maintained. The management/leadership are helpful and kind and truly care about your child. His teachers were amazing and loved our baby as much as he loved them. He was constantly given opportunities to explore and learn from sensory play. They do a great job of documenting each child's day to day activities so that you always know what they are up to. I will forever cherish his weekly journal completed by Ms. Cinthya. The classroom is bright and inviting. The school also plans many additional activities for your child and family to participate in. It was so sad to have to take him out of the school but I know that he was given the best start possible. I cannot recommend this preschool enough!
