Exciting News! Our West Vancouver, CEFA’s very first school, is moving to a new location this November. The new school will be located at 4925 Marine Drive. We would also like to take this time to welcome Mr. Alfonzo Ordonez who will be taking over the West Vancouver school once our move to our new location is complete.
Our West Vancouver location was the first of our schools to open, in 1998. It offers Junior Kindergarten One through Three, and therefore welcomes children between two and five years of age. It has a wonderful community of families and staff, which make this school very warm and welcoming.
Conveniently located in Park Royal Mall, our school has three beautiful and spacious classrooms, a large outdoor playground, a cinema room, circus room, library and a parent room.
As one of the first junior kindergarten schools to open in BC, we pride ourselves on the quality of early learning and care we offer our young students. The play-based learning provided by our specialized junior kindergarten Teachers cannot be found in typical daycare and preschool environments. We want to make our school the best option for parents by providing all that a family would want, and more. We have an in-house Chef preparing delicious, healthy meals daily, and provide different kinds of extracurricular activities including Music, Drama, Visual Arts and Yoga.
Furthermore, we try to extend the learning outside the classroom by taking the students on regular field trips into the surrounding community, with walks to Ambleside Beach and Park, or visits to the Capilano Fish Hatchery.
Applications are welcome any time throughout the year, although to ensure a spot we recommend registering your child at birth for one of our unique CEFA programs.

My three girls all attended CEFA, starting back as far as 2004 all the way up until 2011.
I believe that all the academic work they did at CEFA really helped to prepare them for Kindergarten and beyond. They still excel now at language, arts and sciences, and love to read and learn new things.
I always felt confident leaving my children in the capable hands of your wonderful CEFA Teachers. I encourage every parent that I know to enroll his or her children in this Junior Kindergarten; it is a great start for any child!
Yours truly, Nicole Palacios (Junior Kindergarten Three Mom)
