Vancouver - Commercial Drive Early Education

This CEFA Vancouver early education facility is located in the heart of the Commercial Drive Community and welcomes a diverse group of families that reflect the neighbourhood.

Besides the beautiful interior of our Vancouver centre, which includes three spacious classrooms, a cinema room, an art room, as well as a parent room, we are very proud of our two outdoor playgrounds. CEFA is committed to the “Greening Our Playgrounds” project, launched in May 2010 at the school’s grand opening.

We have an in-house Chef preparing delicious, healthy meals daily, and provide different kinds of extracurricular activities such as Music, Drama, Visual Arts and Yoga. We also love taking our students on regular fieldtrips into the surrounding areas.

CEFA's Vancouver daycare facility on Commercial Drive contains two outdoor playgrounds for the students.


We are happy to introduce CEFA Mini, a brand new half-day program that delivers a partial component of our CEFA Enriched Curriculum.

CEFA Mini focuses on the academic skills of Writing, Reading, Math and Science, using the same approach to learning as our full day program, but with less time to practice their skills in the classroom, students are expected to spend a higher level of time at home with parents to achieve the same results.

CEFA Mini will be offered to children from 3-5 years of age at our CEFA – Vancouver Commercial Drive location. The program will be offered in the morning (8:30am – 12:00pm) and afternoon (1:00pm – 4:30pm) with full time and part time options available.

For more information or to register for CEFA Mini, please contact There are limited spaces available so please act quickly!
