About Us:

The CEFA educational system at Core Educational & Fine Arts (CEFA) Junior Kindergarten is one of
today’s leading approaches to educating young children. Its rich academic content is designed to
stimulate the child in many different ways, to optimize the natural development of the child’s
brain. This wonderful approach facilitates learning experiences for children in areas such as
mathematics, reading, writing, drama, science, visual arts, music, yoga and many more. It is
based on the belief that children must be given the opportunity to learn and exercise their
intellect in various forms, such as the expression of their creativity, reasoning, and sequential
thinking. In the CEFA environment, children have ample time to learn, play and express
