We are so thankful for finding KLA. We continue to be affirmed in our decision to send our daughter here. The teachers are caring and responsive and even with COVID precautions we find it easy to stay in touch. We can see the difference in our daughter as well. She thoughtfully explores new objects she encounters and also will play independently and creatively. We really appreciate the Reggio Emilia approach and love that our daughter does art, plays outside, and gets messy at school. The thoughtfulness and intention to detail in which the school has handled the pandemic has confirmed our choice many times over.

Our 5-month-old just recently started with KLA and it was the best decision we could have made. We have already noticed such a difference in how alert and curious she is to everything that is going on around her. The teachers are very welcoming and keep great communication between us parents. I know that I can reach them via telephone or email with any and all questions. Our daughter was born with an Omphalocele and most daycares either turned us away or said that they didn’t have the ability to provide the care that she needed. KLA did the complete opposite of that; they welcomed us in with open arms! We are so happy to be a part of the KLA family and can’t wait to watch our daughter grow with them.

Our 14-month-old son, Wells, just started at KLA a couple months ago. We moved from a different state so we were really sad to leave our previous facility and we were a bit nervous about putting him in a new place. That being said, we have been beyond impressed with KLA. I would never just call them just a "daycare" because they really work on development with the little ones no matter how old they are. Every week we see some new things our son is doing and we know it is directly contributed to his time at KLA. We love all of the communication we receive from his teachers and are excited to see how he continues to grow here.
My husband and I are very pleased with the education our daughter receives at Prospect. There is no doubt she is a step ahead in her knowledge and social development. We especially take note of the difference when we see her interacting with her peers that attend "daycare". The school setting provided by Prospect and use of Reggio Emilia techniques truly allows the children to explore their natural curiosity. This ignites a passion for learning!! The teachers are exceptional with a genuine interest in seeing their students succeed. We believe Prospect is an extension of our family. We have no concerns about our daughter's safety or wellbeing during the day. We appreciate and honor the Christian values of Prospect. Our investment in education has and will continue to payoff for years to come as our daughter's core foundation has been built upon helpful tools taught and nurtured through the program.

Our daughter is in the Baby Nido classroom, I am always so excited to open our weekly journal e-mail. Getting to have a glimpse into what she is doing and learning during the day always brightens my work day. We are so happy to be parents in the KLA community and are so thankful for the hard work of the teachers and administration. I cannot wait to continue to watch Charlotte grow in the wonderful KLA environment.
