Burnaby - Brentwood

The new Brentwood location will be located at LM 100 – 4664 Lougheed Hwy. The owners are pleased to announce the opening of their 5th CEFA location in the Fall of 2016. The enriched curriculum will feature a unique partnership of core subjects, such as Reading, Writing, Math and Science and fine arts, such as Drama, Music, and Yoga. We provide children the freedom to learn and grow through play. Each of our Teachers will have their Early Childhood Education licences and will achieve their specialized CEFA Teacher Training.

Updates and Reminders

Welcome to CEFA Brentwood
Items to bring to school


We would like to apologize on behalf of the CEFA Store for the shortage of uniforms. When getting ready for school in the morning, please have your children wear a white top and grey bottom if you do not have official CEFA uniforms yet.

Any outdoor rain gear will be acceptable as we wait for the CEFA outdoor gear to arrive. Once November begins, please feel free to send your child to school in a winter coat and winter boots.

CEFA Children go outside rain or shine, for a minimum of 20 minutes a day.  Please ensure that you are providing proper outdoor gear for your child to suit the weather.


School Closures

In case of inclement weather conditions or power outages which prevent CEFA Early Learning from providing service to families, the school’s Franchise Partner will make an early morning decision to close the school based on our School District.

Snow closures – In the event of heavy snowfall, our first priority is the safety of our families and staff. We expect to be open every day throughout the winter. However, if the public schools in our School District, Brentwood Park Elementary, has made the decision to not open schools because the roads are deemed too unsafe for travel CEFA Brentwood will also be closed.

Schedule of Activities


Drop-in Days

Occasionally parents may request to bring their child on a day outside of that child’s schedule. If there is space available in the classroom, the family would be invoiced $80 for that day.
