Every year more and more scientific studies prove just how essential offering constructive and engaging environments for children to play and learn really is. They’ve shown us how quality Early Learning contributes to children’s health and well-being in the present and throughout their lives. Safe, fun, and child-focused spaces create opportunities for children to build confidence and develop essential skills that will impact their future development.
CEFA Early Learning is the leading private school for children aged one to five in Canada. We have carefully developed and are constantly evolving a sophisticated curriculum based on the latest research in child and brain development to holistically educate children as individuals.

Here’s what the science says about the benefits of Early Learning:
- Studies have continually demonstrated that high-quality education during the early years of life is an investment with the highest possible return. According to the Heckman Curve, established by the eponymous Nobel Laureate Prize winner, it’s the most cost-effective way to approach teaching and learning.
- Deficits in both language and math can start to form well before kindergarten. A child’s brain is most malleable during the first five years of their life. During this time, their brains are forming one million new neural connections each second! This wiring becomes the foundation for all future growth.
- The period of extreme growth means that it is important to positively influence a child’s developing brain architecture as soon as possible. In addition, emotional and social understandings provide a strong basis for many cognitive skills and can determine success later in school and in life.
- From the ages of 1 to 5, a child’s environment is of the utmost importance as children at this stage are always learning and absorbing their surroundings. This learning forms a foundation for their long-term development. That’s why at CEFA, we’re proud to champion quality early childhood education throughout Canada.
CEFA goes beyond early childhood education by preparing young minds for school and living a life of purpose.
