The Best Daycare In Cloverdale Isn't A Daycare.

At CEFA Cloverdale, we are all that and more. Core Education & Fine Arts (CEFA) is an Early Learning Private School with a proprietary and award-winning curriculum designed to educate and develop your whole child—academically, emotionally, physically, and socially so they’re ready for kindergarten—and for life!

NOW OPEN!

Developing a better way of learning

Join CEFA Early Learning in Cloverdale

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 and enriched curriculum for students to not only explore and learn, but to discover how they can contribute to the world.

We’re excited to be opening a new school in Surrey, early 2024 (pending construction). It will be conveniently located in the main hub intersection of highway 10 and 176, right behind Trail Appliances. As part of this community, our purpose will be to make our School an integrated member of the neighbourhood, and adjacent communities.

CEFA Surrey – Cloverdale will have 138 childcare spaces to help address the urgent need for childcare in Surrey. Our facilities will consist of over 9,000 square feet of indoor and multiple rooftop playground spaces for the exclusive use of our school.

Applications are now open. You can also email us at cloverdale@cefa.ca or fill out the inquiry form below.

We’d love to hear from you!

CEFA Cloverdale Program Schedules and Openings!

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.

We welcome applications from new families at any tie, although we recommend registering at birth for any of our unique CEFA programs.

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.

School Closures

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 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.
