Who We Are
With direct involvement from Roberto and Candy, KLA Schools of Walnut Creek was inspired by the community and designed by a collaboration of our architects and the education team. Our center is custom built to enable students to excel in their learning objectives. Build-out specifications for the 18,000 square foot school include 12 classrooms, a Light Room, a lively indoor playground, a 10,000 square foot outdoor playground and an involving Atelier as a centerpiece to stimulate children’s natural curiosity.
The KLA Walnut Creek school features the most functional and modern furniture specially crafted for early childhood education. The classroom materials and equipment are carefully selected to accommodate the different age-group needs and classroom settings.
The mission of the Reggio Emilia inspired KLA Schools of Walnut Creek, and the goal of Roberto and Candy, is to construct a safe and secure learning environment and to provide an affordable high-quality education that promotes social, emotional, physical and cognitive development for preschool students in the Walnut Creek community.

State-of-the-art kindergarten class that integrates technology, arts, and science with creative expression. Along with physical well-being and social development, we ready children for lifelong success in learning.
With closed circuit cameras, electronically locked doors and a security guard on staff, we offer peace of mind to families.

Atelier (Art Studio)
An Atelier connotes an artist’s workroom and at KLA Schools of Walnut Creek, it is also a common space that children share. It supports the use of different media while encouraging exchanges between the different materials, people and ideas.
Classrooms are furnished with wide-open windows and transparent doors that connect the classrooms to one another. By structuring our spaces this way, the children are provided with the opportunity to feel welcomed not just in their classrooms, but the ones next door.
I love this place! KLA has exceeded my expectations in every way. My son is growing and learning so much, and he is a confident, happy little boy. This is due to the environment at KLA and his teachers and the staff. I appreciate the updates every day and hearing about everything he is doing! KLA has been a wonderful home away from home for my son.

We love KLA Walnut Creek and count our blessings that we have Ale and Raman as our daughters teachers. I 100% feel like KLA is an extension of our home and our teachers are like second (and third!) moms to our daughter.
