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.

Looking Back: Starry Night

There are some things that all children seem to be interested in: cars, trees, dinosaurs, bugs, and space. Not all children are interested in these things, of course, but our experience is that most are, at one time or another. The role of an Early Childhood Educator is to notice when children are interested in…
