JK3 Graduation Dates & Location
Tuesday June 26th 4PM - 6PM @ Michael J Fox Theater
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.
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.
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. Please note that CEFA can only offer drop-in days to currently registered students. We do not switch scheduled days.
We welcome applications from new families at any time, although we recommend registering at birth for any of our unique CEFA programs.
