• Our Educators

    KLA Schools are staffed with caring, fun, and dedicated professionals. Participating regularly in professional development experiences, our teachers are constantly looking for ways to learn more about the best ways to teach our students. Observations of each child are taken throughout the day in addition to notes reflecting on weekly projections. Our educators are continually analyzing which ways children learn best as well as which teaching styles are most effective. Facilitators in their interactions with children, our educators work to align children interests with the learning domains in loving, nurturing, and positive ways which support students in feeling safe, loved, and valued. Our curriculum addresses the whole child including academic, physical, social and emotional domains.

    We encourage them to think deeper and ask questions as they research different theories. It is of utmost importance that teachers and children alike invest in researching and collaborating together in order to be a part of each other’s learning process.

  • Parents as Our Partners

    Parents are a crucial factor in our program. In fact, parents are our partners. Our teachers understand and respect that parents are their children’s first teacher. Their involvement in the school gives their children a sense of security and is deeply appreciated. We recognize that stable, quality relationships during the early years are fundamental for later developmental outcomes. Collaboration between teachers, parents and the children is an integral part of the educational experience at KLA Schools. Our goal is not simply to build a strong, warm and nurturing connection with each child, but to extend that connection to our community of parents. By working in a collaborative group setting, children learn critical life skills such as compromise, reasoning, respect for others’ opinions and enhancement of their sense of community. Through these partnerships, children benefit from experiencing many of the same principles at home that they do in school and thrive with this consistency. Teachers also offer frequent support our families and our communities through transparency and by being a source of information about educating a whole child and the various aspects of development.

Testimonials

  • 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.

  • 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.

    J.S.
  • 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.

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

  • 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!!!

    Margie S.
  • Amazing school. Wish it opened here years ago so all my kids would have been able to benefit from the experience.

    Jennifer L.
  • 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.

  • Everything I could possibly say about this place is absolutely awesome, from environment to staff, everything is beautiful designed for out little ones to feel they belong to this place, everybody at school is friendly and always happy, and they go beyond to professionalism to care about your personal life.

He is my biggest treasure and they make sure that I feel he is treated that way!!

  • 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.
  • 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!

  • 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.

  • We could not be happier! My children have been in the school since they were 3 months old; they love their school and their teachers. I am happy to know they receive so much love and are so well cared for. The owners treat each child as if they were their own, the staff is wonderful and the teachers are great.

  • 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!

    Lisa V. and family
  • We couldn’t be happier with the people who make this school a second family for Dillon. We truly appreciate everything you do for our son. It means the world to us.

  • Thank you so very much for creating such a beautiful environment for Connor to enjoy everyday!

    McCarty Family
  • Thank you so much for treating us like family. Antonio, Stella and Gabriela have developed amazingly since they started here. They like it so much that sometimes they do not want to go home. Thank you to all of their teachers. The triplets love you all.

    The Betancourt Family
  • 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.

    Sarah
  • We love our KLA School of NBV! Mrs. Kenia carefully selects all the teachers and makes sure the children get the best of the best and for that, I am forever grateful!

    Cassandra Coelho-Ramos, North Bay Village
  • 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!

    Oriana Di Caro, North Bay 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!

    Nicolette S.
  • My two year old daughter goes here since she was 13 months. She loves it!! And we love it too! Best Preschool in Miami!!

  • I like KLA schools. They have good teachers, and the babies enjoy a lot with the different experiences with animals, plants, colors.

Tour

We would like to welcome you to your digital tour of KLA Schools. From the moment you walk into any of our locations, you will know that you are in a KLA School. Each one of our schools has a modern feel and design unlike any other. Features such as wood floors and furniture, large picture windows for all classrooms and offices, large corridors and classroom sizes, soft tone colors, and play soft furniture brought in from Italy are some of the visual components that makes KLA stand out from all the rest.

  • Safety

    KLA Schools are safe and secure by design. We work diligently to maintain the cleanliness of our facility as well as the safety of our furnishings and overall health of our children and their environment. Parents log their children in at the reception area, where no outsiders are allowed. All doors leading outside of the KLA Schools grounds are kept locked and only able to be opened through sophisticated technology. Our schools include an outdoor play area designed with age appropriate materials, protective fences, and well-maintained grounds to insure the children’s safety. The entire school is continually monitored utilizing closed caption cameras in all classrooms as well as hallways and outdoor spaces. Staff members qualified to respond to life-threatening emergencies are always in attendance. Trained in pediatric first aid and CPR, staff members are always available to respond to a variety of emergency medical situations. In addition to our regularly instituted health and safety plan, emergency care producers are also put in place for both minor and major incidences. Whatever the situation, our staff is confidant and qualified to keep your most prized possession safe at all times.

Community Service

As part of our philosophy and educational approach, we believe it is essential to make visible that fact that each child knows and understands that we are all different and can co-exist peacefully. We have different ways of thinking, a fact we embrace. In fulfilling this vision, KLA Schools has formed relationships with charitable organizations within each of the communities it exists. Below you can read a bit more about our involvement with the following foundations.

  • Camillus House

    camillus.org

    Each year KLA Brickell participates in fundraising through the Camillus House Organization. Serving the South Florida community since 1960, this is a non-profit organization that provides humanitarian services to men, women and children who are poor and homeless. We ask our families to help us by providing basic non-perishable necessities to these people in our community.

  • The Pajama Program

    pajamaprogram.org

    The Pajama Program provides new pajamas and new books to children in need, many who are waiting and hoping to be adopted. Some of the children this organization serves are living with their families below the poverty level, in desperate need of food, clothing and shelter. Each year around the winter holidays, KLA School of Brickell collects books and pajamas for children from infants to six years old.

  • M.A.S. Foundation

    masfoundation.org

    The M.A.S. foundation strives to make a positive impact on the less fortunate through compassion, respect and humility. They provide medical assistance, feed the hungry, clothe the poor, and help educate young minds. KLA School of Palmetto Bay supported this organization with the donation of food items during the Thanksgiving Holiday and toys for Christmas. These donations were sent to St Ann’s Mission in Homestead. KLA School of Palmetto Bay initiated this school wide fundraiser and involved their children, parents and staff.

  • Toys for Tots

    toysfortots.org

    KLA School of North Bay Village participated in the donation of toys for children and families in need during the winter season. Toys are collected through this organization, associated with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Unit, to provide hope and happiness during difficult times to assist them in becoming responsible, productive, and patriotic citizens. Ask the KLA Schools near you to see how they’re making a difference in the community.
