What Makes Our School Unique?
AKA –> Teacher Planning Time
Why does KLA place such a high value on Professional development?
We believe in the incredible potential and never-ending growth of children, and our respect and dedication to our teachers is just as strong. KLA teachers spend 90 minutes every day to reflect, analyze, document, and plan. They also meet together as a staff once a week for 2 hours to share and work together as a team to continue learning from one another.
So What Does This Mean For Your Child?
Our teachers are passionate about teaching and about learning and growing. The time to work on projects, develop them, analyze and interpret what children are doing and saying, actually exists for them during their working hours! We truly believe that growth, progress, and learning brings us joy in life, and when our teachers are happy, our children are happy and set up for success.
Happy teachers + Happy Children = Learning!
Endless Opportunities for Parent Involvement
Early this year parents had many of their questions about
Kindergarten and Elementary
at KLA answered while enjoying a morning coffee during a Coffee Talk for 4’s Parents with our Elementary Coordinator, Angie Rodriguez.
Some important points covered:
- Look forward to Kindergarten Switch Day, where children of the 4’s spend a whole day in Kindergarten!
- The Reggio Emilia Philosophy is still very present, as well as our enrichment program, including: Technology Lab, Karate, Physical Education, Spanish, Atelier, Choir, and Creative Movement.

“I’m Ana, and I have been living in Miami for 17 years, originally from Cuba. I have been a teacher at KLA for 4 years and worked in the Nido’s 2’s and 4’s classrooms. I am currently completing my Bachelor’s Degree in Education. I love being a teacher in KLA because I’ve learned so much, and I always want to continue learning more. In all of this learning, I’ve gotten the chance to know education and what I perceive to be the highest form of it, here at KLA.”

“I’m Iliana, and when I moved to Miami from Honduras 7 years ago, I started working at KLA and I love it! I love that I have the freedom to be creative. Each child’s way of learning is respected. Teaching here is a teamwork, and I love how our school works together as a community.” Iliana has been a teacher of every age group in the preschool! –

Keeping Young Children Safe on Youtube
Over the years, YouTube has skyrocketed in popularity. It now has over one billion users daily, and many of these are children.
