You’ve purchased a tiny backpack, you’ve met the educators that will care for your child; you’ve taken all of the necessary steps to prepare your child (and yourself) for the first day of child care.
Even with all of the steps put in place to ensure your comfort, peace of mind, and trust you can’t help but wonder about a few things. You know how you see your child – they are the light of your life; your entire world. But how do the caregivers and educators at Today’s Family see your child?
You can find the answer to this question right in the pillars that make up the foundation of who we are; an organization that exists so that children’s lives are enriched and family life is enhanced.
Every child comes to Today’s Family filled with possibilities. Their interests, inclination, feelings and perceptions grow and change on a daily basis. This is part of being a unique individual, and is a crucial part of growing up. We respect that, and we do our very best to foster and encourage this individuality within every child.
Your child deserves to belong.
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.
Your child deserves to feel well (in every way).
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.
Your child needs to be engaged.
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.
Your child needs to feel comfortable expressing themselves.
Here, every child is a capable communicator who expresses himself or herself in many ways. Our programs foster communication and expression in all forms.
