Our Senior Leadership Team and Board



We are poised to grow. We are committed to ensuring quality and growth of our innovative programs to best serve children and their families. Our Senior Leadership Team and volunteer Board of Directors work collaboratively with our community to steer Today’s Family in new directions.

In January of 2022, our Board of Directors launched our 2022-2025 Strategic Plan. These priorities were set in consultation with our community to reflect the current needs of children and their families.

Together, we will:

  • Focus on financial strength and stability
  • Invest in our people
  • Embrace and embed a commitment to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in our culture and practices
  • Promote Today’s Family’s collaborative model to lead early learning and child care system development

Further, in March of 2022, Ontario signed onto the Canada-Wide Early Learning and Child Care Plan. Working together with our communities, we are committed to building child care for families in their neighbourhoods.

Embracing the Future, we’re recruiting community leaders to join our volunteer Board of Directors

Today’s Family has openings for board members with diverse skills, talents, and expertise. If you’re as passionate about the well-being of children and families as we are, if you’re interested in governing an organization that truly makes a difference, and if you’re ready to help steer Today’s Family toward a future that is bright and even more impactful, we want to hear from you!
