The acquisition process
KLA Schools support staff is extensively qualified and experienced in the inner workings of preschools from operational to educational aspects. Thus, our staff understands and respects that during an acquisition process it is imperative to maintain strict confidentiality so that the business operates normally throughout the due diligence process. KLA Schools ensures not only to engage with every stakeholder in order to reach a successful transition of the business, but also to guarantee a smooth transition for staff, families, and the students as the organization moves to new ownership.
Once the acquisition is completed, the KLA Schools team will commit itself to providing each one of the acquired school staff with the continuity and the tools necessary to continue to operate efficiently while offering a quality early childhood education program.
About KLA Schools
Selling to KLA Schools
KLA Schools is a company that has been in the market for 9 years. The founders are educators and operators themselves. Throughout these years we have assured all of our stakeholders that we have the capabilities to grow responsibly with a proven curriculum that can assure a children’s ability to excel on their future endeavors. We would like to further this commitment by offering other preschool operators the possibility to sell their centers to our family of schools. Selling their preschools will give owners the following benefits:
- The possibility of recovering their investment in their business to retire or pursue other goals.
- Be certain that their educational legacy will be maintained and improved with KLA Schools.
- The commitment to preserve the jobs of the school’s staff.
- Introduce to their existing program the Reggio Emilia Approach to Early Childhood Education.
- A smooth transition of management and operations.
