Letter from the Director


Dear Families,

Welcome to KLA Schools of Prospect, a member of the KLA Schools family. I would like to invite you to explore our website and encounter what makes our school unique.

KLA Schools of Prospect is inspired by the Reggio Emilia Approach which emphasizes inquiry, research, invention, documentation of student work, and strong home/school relationships.

Each of our dedicated teachers hold a Bachelor’s degree in Education and have obtained, or are in the process of obtaining, their Master’s degree. KLA Schools of Prospect teachers value their relationship with each student and create a learning experience specific to individual strengths and interests.

Students are encouraged to explore, hypothesize, experiment, and collaborate with peers to learn about the world around them and their significance within. Students learn to construct, reflect, and reconstruct their ideas and understanding, thus enabling the creation of critical thinkers.

Our school community supports students by providing a stimulating learning environment that cultivates a child’s natural curiosity. Students at KLA Schools of Prospect express themselves through speech, writing, mathematics, technology, music, movement, and artistic representations. Each classroom includes a mini-atelier where students have the tools and materials to express themselves through paintings, clay and wire sculptures, design, and more.

Teachers observe and document the learning process and share these experiences with parents, further supporting our focus on the school and home relationship.

After exploring the website, please contact me if you have any questions or to schedule a tour. I look forward to meeting you.

Warmly,

Susan Bumann-Riehl
Director
