Top 10 Reasons to find Franchise Opportunities with CEFA Early Learning

Reason #1: CEFA Revenue  Retention and Predictability

Education is the top priority for our families. That’s why students enrolled in our schools typically stay until they enter kindergarten meaning revenue that’s predictable. We’ve been growing since we opened in 1998 and today we are Canada’s largest early learning private school.


Reason #2: CEFA Curriculum

We are Canada’s leading private school for children ages one to five. Our proprietary curriculum was developed using best practices from top early learning schools all around the world, and covers STEM, reading, writing, music, art and yoga using the latest research in childhood development and psychology.


Reason #3: CEFA Franchise Partner Support and Management System

CEFA provides all the training and support needed to open your school including marketing strategies, optimizing your operations and training your staff. We meet regularly to discuss updates in our business and the industry, ask and answer questions, and brainstorm with our entire franchise system. Our operations team exists solely to support your success.


Reason #4: CEFA Teacher Certification Program

All CEFA teachers have earned their Early Childhood Education designation from an accredited post-secondary institution, but our CEFA Teacher Training takes it one step further with intensive in-school training and a mentorship program where teachers learn to implement the unique CEFA approach and teaching philosophy.


Reason #5: CEFA Location Scouting Service

We welcome you to suggest a neighbourhood for your CEFA School, but also work to regularly secure locations based on demographics, zoning, visibility, and proximity to major roadways. Our operations team will help you from lease negotiation to building design, licensing, permit applications and construction management. All recommended sites are chosen to give you the best chance for success.


Reason #6: CEFA Growth Track Assurance System

With childcare services in high demand across Canada, there is significant growth potential with CEFA Early Learning. A service manager is assigned to assist each Franchise Partner with school operations, ensuring maximum potential for every school.


Reason #7: Exclusive CEFA Brand Development Fund

As the only early learning franchise in Canada, the CEFA brand immediately gives credibility and recognition to your school, instilling trust in families. We provide you with all of the materials and information required to ensure your brand shines through.


Reason #8: CEFA Parental Expertise

Parents will turn to you as a trusted resource and expert when it comes to guiding children through the early years. To help you provide families with the best information, we’ve created the CEFA Parental Expertise – a resource library with information on everything from potty training to discipline.


Reason #9: CEFA Store

Your students act as your very own ambassadors by wearing branded uniforms, mandatory for safety and security reasons. Our team supplies samples and arranges all the merchandising, storage, sales and inventory.


Reason #10: Social Responsibility

CEFA goes beyond early childhood education by preparing young minds for school and for living a life of purpose. The earliest years are the most critical and CEFA schools are actively helping to shape the leaders of the next generation.
