The best daycare in Surrey Sullivan Heights isn’t a daycare.

At CEFA Sullivan Heights, 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!


Developing a better way of learning

CEFA Surrey Sullivan Heights is Now Open!

CEFA Sullivan Heights is more than a daycare or traditional childcare centre. 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.

CEFA Surrey – Sullivan Heights is located in a charming standalone building just off King George Blvd and 58th Avenue in Surrey. The school will offer four spacious, natural finished classrooms, a professional kitchen, and two secure outdoor playgrounds. CEFA Surrey Sullivan Heights will have placements for 70 students, aged one to five, and provide families with enrolment options for 2 to 5 days per week.

Set them up for lifelong learning and wellbeing.

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 with them the benefits and confidence of this foundation throughout their entire lives. As a private early learning school focused on Core Education and Fine Arts, our proprietary curriculum is the most sophisticated of its kind in Canada and designed to educate and develop your child—to get them kindergarten ready, and life ready.

Why CEFA vs. Traditional Daycares in Surrey.

CEFA is a licensed daycare with added Early Childhood Education proprietary curriculum. When considering Montessori preschool, other childcare curriculum, childcare programs, daycares or infant childcare, there is no comparison. The best daycare or Montessori preschool is one with Early Childhood Education curriculum that will help get your child ready for kindergarten, and one that makes them feel that their contributions matter.

Make sure you know the difference and what each school offers. The early years are foundational to your child’s success in the future.

Early Learning Schedule


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.

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.
