Surrey - Guildford Preschool

Enroll In CEFA Early Learning

Our CEFA Guildford preschool is located in the heart of the Surrey Guildford Community and welcomes a diverse group of families that reflect the neighbourhood.

At our CEFA Guildford preschool, our commitment is to offer the highest quality of education for each and every child in our community. Our management and staff offer support and expertise to assist you with your child’s early learning experiences. We have hired an amazing group of experienced and creative teachers whom are dedicated to developing a fun, and educational learning environment for children ages 1-5. Our teachers specialize in French and incorporate the language into the curriculum.

Our onsite chef prepares healthy and homemade recipes from scratch daily and plays an important role in our Little Chef’s program, where she teaches the children how to prepare healthy snacks.

Our core curriculum consists of Reading, Writing, Socials, Science, and Math. Our extra curricular activities include Yoga, Dance, Music, Visual Arts, Cultural Immersion, and Drama! In all of our programs, children learn while surrounded be peers of the same age, unlike a typical daycare environment where children of different ages are often grouped together.

Besides the beautiful interior of the school, which includes six spacious classrooms, a cinema room, an art room, and a yoga room, we are very proud of our natural outdoor playground which is committed to the CEFA “Greening Our Playgrounds” project and incorporation of gardening into the daily schedule. We would love for your family to come and visit our facility and learn why we are the most respected early learning facility in the community!

Parent Testimonial

As parents, we all know how hard it is to leave your children. At CEFA, I was able to do so worry-free.

At first, I had my doubts, as we all think our kids need us the most. But slowly they have adapted to the lifestyle, they are able to walk in to the classroom and say goodbye without crying, they have learned how to clean up after themselves after meals, and they’ve become more independent than we expected. The staff at CEFA Guildford are all very kind and considerate, they really take the time to understand what the kids want, and put in the effort to guide them on proper communication and how to express feelings. The curriculum is everything we could hope for; inspiring the creativity, self-improvement, and teaching how to respect others. The teachers also live and breathe their core value and what they believe in. They do not hesitate to help if we have any concerns, and they cooperate with us to find the best solutions.

I am grateful to see my kids going to school with a big smile on their faces. Knowing that each day would be an awesome adventure, always gaining new knowledge and having never before experiences. It is just such a relief to realize my love ones are growing stronger and stronger in a safe setting that encourages them to explore the world.

Thank you for loving my children as much as we do.

Good Afternoon Team CEFA Guildford,

I am writing this email to convey my heartfelt gratitude for the CEFA staff and facilitators.
You have done a remarkable job. My daughter has grown into a very passionate toddler. Moreover, her love for learning has grown by leaps and bounds since she was a baby.

I wanted to foster her love for exploration and learning.

Thanks for being a friend to her and still managing to instill discipline in life, that she would appreciate lifelong.

Thanks for answering her unending questions and questions about anything under the sun and beyond when you taught her about the solar system, you went a step ahead.

Thanks for not judging her when she is upset. Instead, you embraced her with the warmest hug she needed at that moment.

Thanks for being a role model … my daughter is a storyteller, a composer, a dancer, a mentor already and she just wants to be like one of you.

Thanks for patiently listening and teaching her new languages. Exposing her to new cultures and countries. She is wonderfully learning and enjoying the new languages without losing the one she knew already.

Thanks for giving a gift of reading and narrating to my daughter… she is a performer now. I am really impressed by the fine arts component. It has amalgamated so well in your structured schedules. Out of all her classes she enjoys Yoga the most and teaches me meditation sometimes.

Lastly, thanks for being so accommodating of my last minute requests.

Soon her brother will follow her here to CEFA Guildford.
I hope you will keep up the good work, which is always possible with good teachers around.

Kudos!
– Saavn’s Mom and Dad
