CEFA Early Learning is a leader in private schooling for children ages 1-5 and is looking for franchise partners to open facilities across Canada. If you love being around children and families, have high standards, and believe in the value of education, you could own a CEFA School that uses the CEFA Enriched Curriculum and CEFA Certified Teachers. We have over 19 years of experience that we can use to help you get started today.
We believe that the first 5 years of life are critical for development and saw the need for Early Learning in Canada. In response to this need, Natacha V. Beim, our founder and CEO, established Core Education & Fine Arts (CEFA), Canada’s first junior kindergarten school, in 1998. Our schools utilize the CEFA Enriched Curriculum, which was developed by studying global best practices in Early Learning, and has been refined over the past 15 years by visiting the top schools in various countries every year.

Our full day early learning program is designed for infants and children up to five years old. The enriched curriculum features a unique partnership of core subjects, such as Reading and Math, with fine arts, including Drama and Yoga, providing children with the freedom to learn and grow through play.

Our program has a reputation of highly developing a child’s intellect and delivering the finest start in education, arts, and the humanities. The full day early learning and junior kindergarten programs at CEFA are far beyond the typical child care programs found throughout Canada.

Each of our Teachers are trained Early Childhood Educators who, in addition to their qualifications, receive up to 4 months of additional intense training to certify them by CEFA Educational Systems to become specialized junior kindergarten Teachers.

Today, we have 13 schools open in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia with three more scheduled to open within the next six months. We are also actively pursuing new franchisees in Ontario and Alberta. Our established track record and experience in developing top tier early learning programs offers franchise partners with a high chance of success. We continue to lead the way in providing full time child development centres for the next generation.
