ABOUT THE KLA SCHOOLS
KLA originated back in 2008 when its first location was opened in Brickell, near Downtown Miami by Candy Arocena and her husband, Roberto. 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 25 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.
Roberto inherited his passion for education from his grandfather who founded two schools in South America. Roberto earned a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration and Management from The George Washington University in Washington, D.C.
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 12 schools in South Florida and more than 25 franchise schools across the nation.
Currently there are many 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.
