New Westminster

CEFA New Westminster’s early education centre opened its doors to the community and its families in December 2008, in New Westminster’s Downtown Business Core at 725 Carnarvon Street.

Our beautiful New Westminster centre has two outdoor playgrounds, a resource room and a parent room. We provide a healthy and nurturing environment for your child, enabling you to be happy in the knowledge that your child is safe throughout the day.

Panaboard technology is also offered at our school!

We welcome applications from new families at any time, although we recommend registering at birth for any of our unique CEFA programs. Please feel free to attend one of our upcoming open houses or contact the school to arrange a personal tour!

“Our little girl, whom we are fostering to adopt, was welcomed into the CEFA New Westminster program at one year old. Now almost three, we have watched her thrive under the care and support she has received from her dedicated teachers, administrators and support staff. They support her curiosity and imagination, and challenge her to test her intellectual and physical abilities CEFA New Westminster has been so flexible in adapting the environment to suit our child’s specific emotional and safety needs, and have also been very accommodating in working with us as a ‘non-traditional’ family. We love that this school emphasizes individuality, inclusiveness diversity, and respect for everyone. The individualized attention and support has always made us confident that our little one is being offered the building blocks for future success.”
