Developing a better way of learning

Join CEFA Early Learning in Delta

CEFA Early Learning opened its first school over 20 years ago in B.C. and is now Canada’s leading private school for children ages one to five. Trusted by parents since 1998, CEFA has earned a reputation for developing intellect in the early years, and for providing children with the finest start in education, arts, and the humanities.

CEFA students develop and play along with other children who are the same age, and they are always learning and playing – not just learning, and not just playing. At CEFA, core fundamental skills are at the heart of our curriculum. We offer an incredible opportunity for children to not only explore and learn, but to discover how they can contribute to the world.

CEFA Captains Cove stands adjacent to Captains Cove Marina, conveniently accessible to families from both Tsawwassen and Delta. Our expansive school, housed in a modern building spanning over 8,000 square feet, offers six spacious classrooms with natural finishes. The facility features a professional kitchen with a nutritious menu/meal plan and three outdoor playgrounds inspired by nature.

Within each classroom, we prioritize sustainability and safety by furnishing with non-toxic wood furniture tailored to each age group. The classrooms are bathed in natural light, courtesy of large windows, creating a bright and welcoming environment for your little ones.

Our location consists of 2 Baby classrooms, 2 Junior Kindergarten 1 (JK1) classrooms and 2 Junior Kindergarten 2 and 3 (JK2/3) classrooms, which provide 98 students an enriched curriculum. We are humbled to offer a unique program and learning experience with trained and qualified educators who are passionate about early childhood development.

CEFA is committed to growing and building the highest level of private school education for children. We have developed the most talented team of educators in the Lower Mainland and are excited to showcase our passion for early childhood education in the South Delta- Captain’s Cove area. The CEFA curriculum continues to lead the industry exceeding all the dynamic learning, creative and social needs of children. Come learn why we are recognized as the leader in education for children and how our passion and commitment for education results in the best experience for your child.

A note about scheduling at CEFA schools: We always want to welcome you even when you may not be scheduled. Occasionally parents may request to bring their child on a day outside of that child’s schedule. If there is space available in the classroom, the family would be invoiced a drop-in fee for that day. Please note that CEFA can only offer drop-in days to currently registered students. We do not switch scheduled days. Please contact the school for the drop-in fee.

Early Learning Child Care Matters

Did you know that the first five years are the most important in a child’s learning journey? Our schools are designed to provide your child with the right education at the right time: during the brain’s most formative period.

Having your child attend CEFA will help change their ability to learn, for life. What you give your child by enrolling them at CEFA Early Learning Private School is curriculum that ensures that their future is the best and most successful it can possibly be.

Our Early Childhood Education curriculum is proprietary and award-winning. We offer an enriched program to students that includes Core Education subjects (such as S.T.E.M., Reading, and Writing) and Fine Arts (such as Drama, Music, Dance, and Yoga). Our Teachers have their Early Childhood Education licences as well as specialized CEFA Teacher Training Certification, so our children learn from the very best. We provide a healthy and nurturing environment for your child, enabling you to be happy in the knowledge that your child is safe and stimulated throughout the day.

Your Child's Potential is Waiting

Studies like the Abecedarian Project, and the Perry Preschool Project, have shown that high-quality Early Learning can have a powerful and lasting positive influence on children and even the communities where they live. Children take the benefits and confidence of this foundation throughout their lives. As a private early learning school focused on Core Education and Fine Arts, our proprietary curriculum is the most sophisticated in Canada. It is designed to educate and develop your child—to get them kindergarten-ready and life ready. We believe your child’s education is one of your best investments.

Snow closures – in heavy snowfall, our priority is the safety of our families and staff. We expect to be open every day throughout the winter. However, if the public schools in your School District have decided not to open schools because the roads are deemed too unsafe for travel CEFA will also be closed.
