2021 - 2022  Program Schedule

The Eastern Shore Family Resource Association (ESFRA) is currently planning the programs listed below. IF there are no changes with the protocols from Nova Scotia Health, beginning September 27th all programs will be in-person/onsite and one Virtual Wee Bears. Programs will be held here at our Centre, Good Shepherd Church in Lawrencetown and St. James Church Hall in Head of Jeddore.

Please Note: If there are special arrangements needed, please contact us at 902-861-1461. 
 

Reserving space for participants is done via our website by "Tickets". Onsite and virtual programming will be available in Semesters for Bookworms (2 x 15 weeks), Ready to Learn (2 x 15 weeks), Ready to Play (2 x 15 weeks), Super Dads/Super Kids (TBD), and Wee Bears (3 x 10 weeks). New Parent Group will be from September to May. Play Dates Are Us!, while being considered a Drop-In program, will need tickets before arrival each week. 

 

Tickets will only be accepted for one (1) semester per child in the same Program. IF your child is age appropriate for another program in another semester, we will accept additional enrollment.

 

Ready to Learn and Ready to Plan are being offered in a side-by-side option for participation of children in different age groups. Parent/Caregiver with child(ren) are required onsite but not in the Ready to Learn program. Parent/Caregiver is required to participate in Ready to Play.

 

For the Fall session 2021, there are still some limitations to attendance based on current health protocols. An update to any Programs will be made as changes occur.

 

Our Occupational Health and Safety Plan and the Parent Hand Book will be updated to reflect the health protocols and guidelines of the time. NOTE: These documents/policies are not permanent as provincial guidelines will determine what needs to be done and when to apply certain practices.

 

Parents are responsible to thoroughly read the policies and will be required to bring in a signed copy of the last page of the Parent Hand Book saying they have read and fully understand the policies in place (at that time) on the first day of their child’s program.

Please be aware that our centre closes in the event of inclement weather along with the Halifax Regional School Board, however virtual programs may still operate. In the event of a delayed school opening our centre's opening will also be delayed.  If you are unsure please call the centre at 827-1461.
