Reggio Emilia Inspired
Innovative Approach To Learning
For more than a decade, KLA Schools has modeled a philosophy of teaching and learning that is proven, beloved, and increasingly in demand. Based on the Reggio Emilia Approach, KLA Schools employs a holistic, multisensory approach to learning and growth, where children learn by doing. This requires children to have some control over the direction of their learning - through experiences of touching, moving, seeing, listening, hearing, experimenting, investigating, and ultimately making sense of themselves and the wider world they inhabit.
