At KLA Schools, Children Learn by Doing

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 the experiences of touching, moving, seeing, listening, hearing, experimenting, and investigating.

It's all about real-world interactions and environmental learning experiences.

All children deserve a preschool curriculum focused on hands-on learning and deeper understanding

Every classroom experience is designed to give children opportunities to grow and develop in multiple areas at once. Our Reggio Emilia-inspired curriculum combines all early learning domains to ensure that children are prepared for success in school and in life.

Our philosophy and approach are unique and innovative, but our foundation--the Reggio Emilia Approach--is not new. It's time-tested, thoroughly researched, and backed by educators and professional organizations worldwide. Hailed by Newsweek as the “best preschool approach in the world," our approach consistently leads to better outcomes for children.

The environment—the third teacher in the children’s lives—reflects designed intention, safety, and purpose in every space. Our modern spaces and unique materials inspire children and set KLA Schools apart from other preschools.

What does Reggio Emilia-inspired look like?

Curriculum topics derive from talking with children and their families and from readily known interests because academic skills are learned best when children are interested. For example, learning about dinosaurs often leads to a math experience adding dinosaur figurines, writing a story or reading a book about dinosaurs, and a science experience about dinosaurs in the garden.
