The KLA Schools team is delighted to share the news that we have officially reached 31 preschool franchises open for enrollment or in development! Our newest schools will open soon in Colorado, Florida, and Georgia. This is yet another example of our continued growth from our early beginnings as a few childcare businesses in the neighborhoods surrounding Miami.

Our unique approach to education, founded in the Reggio Emilia philosophy, has played a major part in our continued expansion into new parts of the country. Today’s parents, guardians, and young students often desire a better educational experience than what can be found at the standard daycare. 

The preschool franchise opportunities at KLA Schools give entrepreneurs and others passionate about childhood education the ability to deliver exactly what these communities are searching for. We are highly confident that KLA preschool franchises can deliver better educational outcomes for the children who attend one of our locations – and this continued growth to 30+ franchises further proves that we are on the right track with our franchise owners.

Our Founders’ Vision Fuels the Growth of Our Preschool Franchise Opportunities

At KLA Schools, our mission has remained the same since the very beginning: to create a more enriching learning environment for young students through the Reggio Emilia Approach. This philosophy is what motivated our founders, Roberto and Candy Ortega, to pursue their lifelong dream by opening the first KLA Schools location in 2008.

Roberto, who now serves as the CEO of KLA Schools, inherited his passion for education from his grandfather, who founded several schools of his own. Candy earned her degree in education and began her career as a preschool teacher at a school that taught students using the Reggio Emilia principles. Her experience there inspired both Candy and Roberto to implement the philosophy at their own school. They founded KLA Schools together on the belief that all children have the right to a high-quality education where their capabilities, talents, and abilities are honored and respected.

Our Positive Momentum Carries KLA Schools Forward into New Territories

This focus and commitment that began with our founders remains prevalent in each KLA Schools franchise that currently operates today. Implementing our curriculum, site selection process, classroom layouts, and school design based on the Reggio Emilia philosophy has led to higher satisfaction from students, parents, and guardians – especially compared to the other childcare options in their areas.

With thousands of students and families across the country benefitting from the Reggio Emilia Approach to early childhood education, KLA Schools preschools can be found in: 

  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Connecticut
  • Alabama
  • Texas
  • Illinois
  • California
  • Washington
  • Oregon
  • Kentucky

Our vision is to offer each child enrolled at our preschools endless opportunities to empower themselves and positively influence the world. To make that goal a reality, we spend each day making it our mission to foster a safe, innovative environment with a high-quality education inspired by the Reggio Emilia Approach.

This most recent launch of new KLA Schools franchises is not the only time we have added new locations – and we are highly optimistic it will not be the last. When speaking about our growth, Roberto Ortega, CEO of KLA Schools, said:

“KLA Schools will reach 31 locations with our latest franchise award. This is a fantastic milestone that we have achieved in a relatively short amount of time. It also serves as another positive indication that our preschool model fits well with students, parents, guardians, communities, and the franchise owners and educators who join the KLA Schools team.”
