KLA originated back in 2008 when its first location was opened in Brickell, near Downtown Miami by Candy Arocena and her husband Roberto, along with a group of investors and educators. In the years to follow, they proceeded to open a total of four corporate owned schools all located in the South Florida area. With both the vision and the resources to generate a national, Reggio Emilia inspired childcare franchise, the founders created the KLA Schools Franchise Program in 2010. Since 2010, KLA and its founders have awarded more than 15 franchises nationwide.
Our founders are very much involved with the operations of the schools and with the growth and development of the franchise department. With their ongoing support as well as the dedication and commitment of our staff members, franchisees and most importantly the families who attend our schools, we are confident that KLA Schools will continue to flourish in the years to come.

WHERE ARE WE NOW
Over the years since the doors of our first school opened in 2008 and then with the development of our franchise department in 2010, KLA has continued to grow. There are more than 10 schools in South Florida (5 corporate and growing number of franchise schools) and more than 5 franchise schools across the nation in locations such as Plainfield, Illinois; Bellevue, Washington; Flower Mound, Texas and Walnut Creek, California.
Currently there are more than 17 KLA locations operating around the U.S. and several more schools in the pipeline for development in the near future. With this enterprise, we are creating a world class franchise organization, one that sets new standards for excellence within the children's educational services industry.
