”Our mission is to inspire children to learn and be knowledgeable, seek self-betterment, and contribute as individuals.”
Who We Are
Natacha V. Beim established Core Education & Fine Arts (CEFA), Canada’s first junior kindergarten school, in 1998. Our full day early learning program is designed for infants and children up to five years old. The enriched curriculum features a unique partnership of core subjects, such as Reading and Math, with fine arts, including Drama and Yoga, providing children with the freedom to learn and grow through play.
Our program has a reputation of highly developing a child’s intellect and delivering the finest start in education, arts, and the humanities. The full day early learning and junior kindergarten programs at CEFA are far beyond the typical child care programs found throughout Canada. Each of our Teachers are trained Early Childhood Educators who, in addition to their qualifications, are trained and certified by CEFA Educational Systems to become specialized junior kindergarten Teachers.
