Who We Are
Greetings and welcome to KLA School of West Kendall!
We first opened our doors in 2015 and we are very proud to be praised by our families and members of the community as a great environment for learning.
Our school is designed to have a warm, inviting atmosphere where children will feel
valued, safe and nurtured. The aesthetic experience of our school is open, airy and
bright for an environment that radiates vitality with an abundance of natural light.
The role of our teachers is to collaborate with the children as co-learners. Together,
children and teachers discuss the curriculum through work and play. As children
investigate their theories and ideas, teachers observe, document and reflect to
formulate the thoughtful questions that will extend learning.
We have an Atelier, a dedicated art studio where children express their ideas through
an abundance of high-quality media and natural recycled materials. Art is an integral
part of our curriculum. We encourage them to playfully explore and follow their own
creativity and curiosity through clay, paints, chalk, shadow play and more.
It is our privilege to work with families, as partners, to create the most successful
experience for your child! Any day is a good day to stop by for a tour. My staff and I
invite you to visit anytime.
We hope to see you soon!

I feel really happy that my son is playing, doing what he wants to do, and learning at the same time.
– Class of the 4’s parent
I knew I loved this school the moment I walked through the doors and your work only reinforces how much we were right in choosing this school and this approach. This is our child’s first year in KLA West Kendall and she has already grown tremendously in the few weeks she has been here. Thank you for all that you do and all that you are… We are truly thankful to have our daughter in such a wonderful place.
– Class of the 3’s parent
We love the warm, embracing, creative atmosphere the faculty and staff initiate. I was so afraid when I went back to work that my three-year-old and one-year-old would be upset to go to school full-time. Instead, they were happy to be engaged in activities all day. A highlight of the year was the art exhibit! The school goes out of its way to create a sense of community.
