KLA School of Walnut Creek
KLASCHOOLS (KIDS LEARNING ADVENTURE) in Walnut Creek, California, is inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education. We provide a quality, dynamic, creative learning environment for our children, parents and educators. We are located in the Park Shadelands area directly across from Kaiser Permanente. We are a full day preschool program that serves children between the ages of 3-months to 6-years of age and their families.
We believe that with the right stimulus children’s curiosity, creativity and individuality can foster a lifetime love for learning, an appreciation for their community and all life on our planet. Our goal is to sustain and strengthen their innate characteristics.
Our educational setting is inspired by a child’s marvel at the gifts of life and their multiple facets of creative expressions. Our educators observe, document and interpret children’s thinking and learning in order to expand their curiosity. We support children to become respectful, confident, individual thinkers and thoughtful citizens of the world.
As a school we nourish quality communication and relationships. We welcome ideas for learning and share best practices so that we can provide a higher quality experience for our children. When parents, teachers and the community are involved, children thrive.
“The wider the range of possibilities we offer children, the more intense will be their motivations and the richer their experiences. We must widen the range of topics and goals, the types of situations we offer and their degree of structure, the kinds and combinations of resources and materials, and the possible interactions with things, peers, and adults.”
