School Closures

In case of inclement weather conditions or power outages which prevent CEFA Early Learning from providing service to families, the school’s Franchise Partner will make an early morning decision to close the school based on our School District.Snow closures – In the event of heavy snowfall, our first 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 has made the decision to not open schools because the roads are deemed too unsafe for travel, CEFA will also be closed.

Each aspect of the CEFA program provides knowledge and stimulation to your child’s brain in different ways.

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 $90 for that day. Please note that CEFA can only offer drop-in days to currently registered students. We do not switch scheduled days.
