Welcome to Today’s Family Winter Camp Program!
Today’s Family is a non-profit charitable agency servicing children and families in and around Hamilton, Halton and Haldimand Norfolk. We offer a wide range of early learning and child care programs as well as parental support programs to help you and your child every step of the way. It’s professional, caring support that makes a real difference in the, physical, emotional, social and intellectual development of children.
Today’s Family programs are built around the Emergent Curriculum, which means our activities are always driven by your child’s interests and passions. So, when it comes to trips to exciting new places, our job as a camp is to plan where to go. What actually happens after we get there, though, is up to your child. That means no fixed schedule, no counselors making plans based on what they think your child will like; your child is king (or queen)!
