North Vancouver

CEFA’s North Vancouver preschool facility opened its doors in September 2008 and is conveniently based on the 4th floor of Capilano Mall.

Our beautiful North Vancouver preschool boasts a large outdoor playground, with direct access from the school, an engaging indoor play area, library, art room and a cinema room.

We pride ourselves on the quality of care and early learning we provide our young students at CEFA North Vancouver. Each of our ECE licensed Teachers go through the CEFA Teacher Training, which enables them to work in our junior kindergarten school. This training is unique to CEFA and sets us apart from other child care centres in North Vancouver.

Applications are welcome any time, although to ensure a spot we recommend registering at birth for any of our unique CEFA programs.
