At Today’s Family, every child has a sense of belonging when he or she is connected to others and contributes to their world. Our programs cultivate authentic, caring relationships and connections to create a sense of belonging among and between children, adults, and the world around them.
Here, every child is developing a sense of self, health, and well-being. Our programs nurture children’s healthy development and support their growing sense of self.
At Today’s Family, every child is an active and engaged learner who explores the world with body, mind, and senses. Our programs provide environments and experiences to engage children in active, creative, and meaningful exploration, play, and inquiry.
Here, every child is a capable communicator who expresses himself or herself in many ways. Our programs foster communication and expression in all forms.

But, don’t you have to know all of the ingredients in a recipe before you whip out your mixing bowls and set to work?…Read More
We visited the toddlers at our C.H Norton location just in time to join them on their nature walk. It’s cold out there, though, so after we bundled up in our coats, hats, mittens and boots, it was time to set out on our adventure! The kids at C.H Norton are especially lucky – they…Read More
We know the importance of music. We know that babies learn to recognize rhythm when they become aware of their mother’s heartbeat. We also know that music is what binds together cultures, families – human beings in general! A specific set of sounds can call up an emotion or a memory. It’s powerful stuff! So,…Read More

At first glance, it’s just a box of stuff. It’s filled with odds and ends; things that are often cast aside. But we know that it’s much more than that, because while standing at the edge with hands engaging with objects that are carefully selected, lessons are learned which lay a foundation for curiosities to…Read More
Supercrawl Supercrawl is an annual celebration of all things creative in Hamilton and the surrounding community. It’s reincarnated the first Friday evening of every month. This past weekend, Supercrawl returned to James St. South with gusto.
