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.
