Where groups of parents get information, and learn and practice new skills to help them in their daily life with their children.
And what is our ultimate goal as a parent? To help our kids learn, through the ages and stages of development, how to become
fully self-sufficient capable adults in the larger world. We may not need formal training to help them do this, but some support
along the way can make the journey that much easier.
Check out our two lending libraries below!
We have a variety of books for families to borrow on topics such as pregnancy,
parenting, language development, early literacy, cookbooks, breast-feeding and much, much more!
Books can be borrowed for up to 2 weeks. If you need more time with a title, just call the centre to let us know you would like
to extend the borrowing time.
We accept book donations especially on parenting issues and children's stories. So if you're cleaning out the closets we'd be glad
to add them to our shelves!
Tired of the same activities at home? Why not borrow one of our Read, Play & Learn Bags!
We have approximately 30 bags which include such themes as Music, Dinosaurs, All about Me, Community Helpers &
our most popular the Giant Building Blocks for the budding architect. A complete list can be found posted in our parent lounge.
Each bag may contain books, videos, CD’s or cassettes, puzzles, puppets, games etc!
1st time borrowers need to fill out a ‘Borrowing Contract’.
The bags may be borrowed for a two-week period.
Upon returning, please have the feedback forms filled out in the bags and let us know if anything is missing or broken!
ESFRA has our own certified car seat inspector on staff to inspect your infant, child and booster seats.
She will ensure that you have installed the seat correctly and that you are using the proper seat for your child's age,
height & weight.
