KLA Schools Acquires Country Day School
KLA Schools’ first school in the state of Alabama
KLA Schools has just completed the acquisition of Country Day School in Huntsville, Alabama. This is the third school the company acquires as a corporate school. Country Day School will become the first KLA Schools in the state of Alabama. As part of KLA Schools’ growth and expansion plan, the company began implementing strategic acquisitions in 2015. Through these acquisitions KLA Schools plans to increase its brand presence all over the country by offering its unique benefits to communities.
“The idea of expanding through acquisitions was born from the fact that the focus of the childcare industry is moving to not only include quality of care, but quality of education and curriculum,” said Roberto Ortega, founder and president of KLA Schools. “Usually the time and resources needed to develop existing childcare centers, in addition to the long-term commitment and journey that education requires, has presented an opportunity for current owners and operators to see in KLA Schools the right organization to take over their operations and grow them together with current and future generations.”
Country Day School is also inspired by the Reggio Emilia Approach to early childhood education. It is the only preschool with this approach in the region. This will help make the transition to KLA Schools easier which will be sometime in the near future. Located north of Research Park in West Huntsville, the school’s campus encompasses a 24,000 sq. ft. facility. This state of the art preschool thru 8th grade facility is surrounded by 21 acres of nature with hiking trails and a dry creek.
Through these strategic acquisitions KLA Schools plans to help current childcare business owners through a smooth transition of ownership that allows the owner to complete a successful exit from the business. This also allows KLA to continue operating the preschool/childcare in a way which preserves the basis of the organization, while enhancing its curriculum with its innovative approach to education.
