About CEFA

Core Education & Fine Arts (CEFA), Canada's first Junior Kindergarten School, was established in 1998 in the city of West Vancouver, British Columbia. CEFA's program has an excellent reputation of highly developing a child's intellect and delivering the finest start in education, arts, and the humanities. All Teachers are trained Early Childhood Educators who are further trained and certified by CEFA Educational Systems to become specialized Junior Kindergarten Teachers.

About SOS Franchising


Success On The Spectrum was founded by Nichole Daher, an Autism mom who envisioned an ABA center that maximized the potential for progress for her daughter.
She created the perfect combination of the most effective methods of ABA science, a fun environment, community outings, safety, and high parent involvement.  
In addition, Nichole created a community outreach program that allowed the local community to come together.
Events like Autism Prom and Sensory-friendly Festivals allowed children to experience social milestones otherwise unavailable to them.  

After the original two centers boasted success and profit, Nichole founded SOS Franchising in order to share her mission with other passionate business owners.
We enthusiastically train and support new business owners to operate successful Success On The Spectrum centers.

SOS Franchising sells ABA franchises throughout the U.S.
