The First School

cefa Early Learning was born in 1998 in response to typical daycare centres which focus on play rather than a blend of education, play and the arts. Our unique approach gained praise from Canadian families and earned recognition as an exciting and stimulating environment for Canada’s youngest children.

As the progression and development of the students enrolled in CEFA became known, the popularity of the approach grew, resulting in the franchising of the school in 2003, and the expansion of CEFA across Canada in 2018.
