Early Learning Programs

The Eastern Shore Family Resource Association has a variety of early learning opportunities for children and their parents/caregivers. We believe that learning begins at home and that parents are their child's first and most important teachers. One of our goals is to offer a continuum of services in which we can provide support and education for parents from pre-parenthood to school readiness. Please note registration is required for the following programs.

New Parent Group (Birth-1 year) - a program bringing new parents together to share and learn more about their babies growth, development, behaviour, and other needs.

Wee Bears - An interactive Early Learning program for parents/careivers and children from 1-3+ years.

Bookworms at Play - An interactive Family Literacy program for parents/caregivers and children ages 3-5 years.

Kinder Bears (4+ years) - A fun time and place to stimulate the imagination of four and five year olds in preparation for school the following year.
