Inside Our School

The mission of KLA Schools of Horizon West is to provide an innovative, progressive preschool curriculum inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education through which students are encouraged to think critically, creatively and independently in a safe and nurturing environment.

By valuing each child’s individuality and natural curiosity, we strive to develop in students a lifelong love of learning where each child’s unique abilities and natural aptitudes are nurtured in ways that develop new and inherent talents.

Safe and Secure Location with State-of-the-Art Cleanliness

With safety and cleanliness being our top priorities, our campus is designed to give families peace of mind. KLA Schools are safe and secure by design with two sets of electronically locked doorways and closed-circuit cameras throughout the campus. Only registered parents or guardians are allowed access to the classrooms and are required to go through two sets of password-protected doorways.

The cleanliness of our classrooms and the overall health of our children and their environment are of vital importance to us. As part of our comprehensive sanitizing program, our school is proud to utilize the ZONO Ozone Sanitizing Cabinet which eliminates 99.9% of bacteria and viruses commonly found on toys, cots, books, and more. The ZONO Cabinet uses no harsh chemicals but rather ozone created from ambient air to sanitize porous, semi-porous, and nonporous surfaces. As part of our COVID-19 precautions, we also have an in-house custodial crew to keep our school spotless around the clock. When children are not in the classroom, we also utilize the Halosil system, a misting system that safely and effectively disinfects all surfaces.

Our Educators


KLA Schools are staffed with caring, fun, and dedicated professionals. Participating regularly in professional development experiences, our teachers are constantly looking for ways to learn more about the best ways to teach our students. Observations of each child are taken throughout the day in addition to notes reflecting on weekly projections. Our educators are continually analyzing which ways children learn best as well as which teaching styles are most effective.

Facilitators in their interactions with children, our educators work to align children interests with the learning domains in loving, nurturing, and positive ways which support students in feeling safe, loved, and valued. Our curriculum addresses the whole child including academic, physical, social and emotional domains.

We encourage them to think deeper and ask questions as they research different theories. It is of utmost importance that teachers and children alike invest in researching and collaborating together in order to be a part of each other’s learning process.

Parents as Our Partners


Parents are a crucial factor in our program. In fact, parents are our partners. Our teachers understand and respect that parents are their children’s first teacher. Their involvement in the school gives their children a sense of security and is deeply appreciated. We recognize that stable, quality relationships during the early years are fundamental for later developmental outcomes. Collaboration between teachers, parents and the children is an integral part of the educational experience at KLA Schools. Our goal is not simply to build a strong, warm and nurturing connection with each child, but to extend that connection to our community of parents. By working in a collaborative group setting, children learn critical life skills such as compromise, reasoning, respect for others’ opinions and enhancement of their sense of community. Through these partnerships, children benefit from experiencing many of the same principles at home that they do in school and thrive with this consistency. Teachers also offer frequent support our families and our communities through transparency and by being a source of information about educating a whole child and the various aspects of development.
