The first six years of a child’s life are key to their development and can have a huge impact on how they will learn for the rest of their lives. That’s why the Core Education & Fine Arts (CEFA) Early Learning curriculum is based on the latest research in child and brain development, to ensure students are ready for kindergarten, and for life.

As Canada’s leading private school for children ages 1 to 5, we strive to educate children as individuals academically, socially, and physically. A CEFA Early Learning School Franchise provides the right education delivered in the right manner to help shape learning as a key foundation to future development.

Our Sophisticated Curriculum

The progressive CEFA mission is based around our exclusive curriculum. The CEFA Early Learning curriculum delivers, an excellent, play-based academic preparation for young children. Before kindergarten, most CEFA students learn to read and write, as well as becoming extensively familiar with math, a second language, science, coding, and more. We also offer a fine arts program, which includes music, visual arts, dramatic arts, yoga, dance, and physical education. At CEFA, core fundamental skills are at the heart of our curriculum, which is constantly advancing.

Our Certified Teachers 

All CEFA teachers have earned their Early Childhood Education designation from an accredited post-secondary institution, but our CEFA Teacher Training takes it one step further with intensive in-school training and a mentorship program. CEFA is known for attracting the very  best teachers, and offering them a proprietary comprehensive guidance course on how to specifically deliver our philosophy and programs. This enables our schools to succeed in delivering an extremely high caliber Early Learning education. 

Our Social Responsibility

CEFA has earned a reputation for developing intellect in the early years and providing children with the finest start in education, arts, and the humanities. Our full day Early Childhood Education programs are far beyond the typical daycare and preschools found throughout Canada. CEFA goes beyond just academics by preparing young minds for school and for living a life of purpose. The CEFA philosophy teaches children to contribute to their communities, gain an appreciation for themselves, nature, and the world they live in. 

The earliest years of a child’s life are the most critical for learning and development and CEFA schools are actively helping to shape the leaders of the next generation. If you’re looking to make a difference in your community, positively impact childhood development, work with incredible teachers, and contribute to the economy, a CEFA Early Learning School Franchise might be right for you!
