An Early Education Franchise That Stands Out Thanks to Our Classroom Design

Let's Face it.  When you open a brand new early education franchise, you are going to have a lot of competition. Families with young children are often more difficult to win over than other consumers. This is because choosing where a student receives their education is almost always taken more seriously than other decisions – and rightfully so.

Schools need to be prepared to match the level of commitment to delivering a superb education that so many of today’s parents expect. Operating as a standard daycare will often result in parents viewing you as nothing more than another babysitter and feeling unsatisfied with their child’s educational experience. Partnering with an established brand can help you overcome the difficulties associated with starting a new preschool from the ground up that is capable of going above and beyond these standards. However, you must still choose an experienced franchisor who can guide you throughout the process and help establish the school you’ve dreamed of opening. If you are eager to start a preschool that fits this description, KLA Schools could be the perfect fit for you!

KLA Schools started as a project led by our founders Candy and Robert Ortega, who wanted to create an early childhood education opportunity that differed from the stale and uninspiring classroom environments found in other childcare centers. They began with one preschool in southern Florida and developed an education plan and business prototype that turned it into an early education franchise that has become successful in many other territories. Today, KLA Schools is renowned by parents for our innovative Reggio Emilia-inspired curriculum and unique school designs – so much so that several parents of KLA students have gone on to become franchise owners themselves!

Our Distinct Classroom Look and Layout

A key differentiator for KLA schools franchises is the look and layout of our student learning areas. Our team of designers works hand in hand with each KLA franchise owner to build modern shared spaces, from the initial floor plan to the use of decorative touches like indoor plants and soft colors. These classrooms are designed to foster a collaborative and welcoming environment that puts the children at ease and allows them to better focus on their learning activities. KLA locations are also often built with large windows to provide natural light into each space, which makes the learning environment more comfortable and positive. This innovative approach is rarely found at the typical daycare, giving us a leg up in becoming the top choice for parents deciding on a childcare facility for their children.

We understand that replicating this design is not something that can be easily done in every market. That is why we thoroughly support you from the very beginning of the site selection process with a team of real estate experts who can help identify and secure land that will serve as the ideal location for a private preschool. They will also assist with the construction of a new school building or the conversion of a building that already exists. If you are unfamiliar with the process, they can streamline your efforts of establishing a childcare facility that meets our and local families’ standards.

Franchise Support to Elevate Your School

Real estate, building conversion, and design are not the only areas where the KLA team can help you strengthen your school’s operations. We offer the following support efforts to our franchise owners from the moment they sign on to open a KLA school until after they have welcomed their first students.

With the franchise investment opportunity that we have developed, we are confident that KLA Schools offers everything that you need to become the top school for early childhood education in your area.

Why You Should Open a Childcare Franchise Using the Reggio Emilia Learning Method

As with virtually any business opportunity, business owners like you will want to ensure that you can attract a minimum number of students to your childcare franchise so you can earn an acceptable return on investment. In the case of a childcare franchise, this means you need to show parents that your school can make a positive difference in their child’s education.

This is a responsibility that is vastly different from the responsibilities of most other franchise opportunities. You are not simply preparing a meal, supplying customers with a one-day experience, or using your expertise to resolve a business problem. You are looking after the well-being of children at a critical point in their educational development.

Responsibilities as important as these can sometimes overwhelm entrepreneurs who try to handle everything on their own under a traditional small business format. This is where having an experienced franchisor in your corner can make all the difference – not just for your business venture, but also for the families who are sending their children to your school.

KLA Schools has developed a preschool franchise opportunity that stands out from the many childcare options currently available to parents. Our team helps each KLA franchise owner create an environment that is superior to the standard daycare franchise that most parents in nearby communities are used to seeing. Through the curriculum, teaching philosophy, and student-centric approach that each KLA Schools franchise implements, parents gain a better understanding and appreciation of what we can build together.

Our Reggio Emilia Curriculum Offers A Unique Approach

KLA Schools is one of the only childcare centers with multiple locations that utilize the innovative Reggio Emilia Approach. This curriculum gives students a more hands-on learning experience. Rather than exclusively learning through reading or hearing about a topic, KLA students can also participate in activities directly related to the subject. This approach:

When setting up your new childcare franchise, you will have the ability to provide input at every stage as we construct our shared vision of what each Reggio Emilia-inspired lesson looks like. You’ll also be able to hire teachers and other staff to help manage the day-to-day education of the students. 

KLA Schools only chooses candidates who are committed to the Reggio Emilia approach and who can pass our thorough background checks. This process is designed to find and eliminate any “red flags” in potential staff members that would present added difficulties to the students’ educational experience or don’t align with our values. Together, we’ll build a preschool franchise that can deliver the best early childhood education around – which will inevitably attract even more families to the nearest KLA Schools franchise.

Reggio Emilia Can Drive Better Outcomes

Overall, parents prefer a school that offers the best possible outcome for their child. When it comes to childcare, there might not be a more crucial time for a student’s educational journey. Parents are aware of this, which is why they are particularly sensitive to what school their child attends in their early years. A school that simply meets standards is no longer good enough to be a significantly attractive option for parents. This is why KLA has put so much effort into building a franchise business model that gives our students a better learning curriculum in the early stages of their education, which can increase your chances of success as a KLA Schools franchise owner.

Many of our franchise owners elect to bring a KLA school to their local community rather than moving to another area, which is uncommon compared to some other preschool franchise opportunities. Not only does this provide you with a more authentic connection with the families attending your school, but it also helps us build a preschool franchise that accurately reflects the identity, needs, and values of the community where it is located.

As long as you continue to implement the Reggio Emilia Approach throughout your curriculum, we are confident that our partnership can give parents and students alike exactly what they are looking for in a preschool.
