The program incorporates CEFA’s unique methodology as well as our own CEFA games and curriculum related to Reading, Writing and Math.
Science Technology Engineering Mathematics (STEM)
CEFA’s STEM curriculum provides a platform for children to acquire skills for solid growth in the areas of science,technology, engineering and mathematics. The program offers engaging and stimulating experiences for children.
Each STEM challenge encompasses learning in at least two disciplines and incorporates materials and situations
which are interesting and meaningful for the children.
From building solar ovens to zip-lines and robots, etc., the CEFA STEM curriculum accommodates and promotes innovative and out of the box thinking to achieve and maximize learning objectives and outcomes.
Some of CEFA STEM challenges include the following:
- Catapults (Engineering)
- Water Slides (Science / Engineering)
- Race Tracks (Engineering)
- Kites (Engineering)
- Straw Rockets (Engineering / Science)
- Zip Lines (Engineering)
- Robots (Engineering / Technology)
- Jellybeans (Mathematics / Science)
Have you ever wished that you were taught how to cook at an earlier age? This course gives your child that opportunity. Children will make simple healthy recipes and then plant the apple seeds next to grass seeds to hypothesize which will grow faster. From making homemade jam, tasting different flavour combinations to discover one that satisfies their taste buds to baking a pizza,
The Little Chef’s experience will definitely help them to become aware of healthy eating as well as develop an interest in culinary skills!
Camping & the Great Outdoors

Children will learn to recognize and dance to different tempos, beats and rhythms and will explore a variety of movement techniques by using props as they move like an astronaut, dinosaur, ballerina, or a cowboy. Children will also learn about famous musicians, such as Beethoven and Tchaikovsky. They will experiment with various instruments to creat their own music and even attempt writing their own music.
In the course, children will experiment with different materials and use the scientic method to delve into a variety of engaging hands on projects that make Science fun. Children will discover through experiments what sinks and floats, explore how magnets attract, watch a rocket take off by using Science, and make their own volcanic eruptions.
