    Iliana  (Lead Teacher Class of the 4’s)

  • Working in KLA has allowed me to learn about the Reggio Emilia Approach. KLA made me see children’s education from the child’s perspective, understanding and embracing the child’s thinking through their actions and creations. Working here has made me a professional with more capacity and knowledge about early childhood education.

    Daniella (Lead Teacher Nido)

  • 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.
