A relationship builder?

Before your KLA Schools preschool can become a profitable business it must first be a good learning and teaching environment for children and staff. Owning and operating a KLA Schools preschool requires nurturing positive and lasting relationships with parents, staff, other KLA Schools owners and members of your community.


Compliance and safety minded?

If you are seeking a franchise opportunity where you can make all the decisions and do things your own way, a KLA Schools preschool is not the right opportunity for you. Our #1 goal is always to keep the children in our preschools safe. KLA's operating standards, brand guidelines, and support system not only protect children, but they also protect your investment and the KLA Schools brand.

Director Interaction

Involved and interested?

Our owners come from many different backgrounds and we value their life experience and expertise. We do not require that you have a degree or background in education. Instead, we value owners who want to learn about our unique Reggio Emilia Approach, are an integral part of the daily operations of their preschool and are committed to making it the best choice for children in their community.

If your answer is an emphatic yes, opening a KLA Schools preschool may be the opportunity for you!

Review Franchise Disclosure Document

After the Discovery Day, we'll decide whether or not we want to work together. If all parties agree, you'll sign the franchise agreement and officially become a KLA Schools franchisee!
