About All Our Kin

All Our Kin is a nationally recognized nonprofit organization that trains, supports, and sustains family child care providers to ensure that children and families have the foundations they need to succeed in school and in life. At All Our Kin, we support family child care providers at every stage of their development - from parents and caregivers to professional educators and business owners - using a strength-based, high-touch approach.

We serve over 850 family child care educators with networks representing five Connecticut cities and New York City, in addition to the surrounding communities. Through our programs, family child care providers succeed as early childhood educators and small business owners; parents have access to high-quality, affordable child care, making it possible for them to enter into and remain within the workforce; and infants and toddlers gain the enriching experiences that prepare them to succeed in school and in life. We have built this model with an intentional commitment to examining racial, gender-based, and socioeconomic inequities and to working against systems of oppression to support equitable opportunities, outcomes, and mobility for all of our caregivers, children, and families.

All Our Kin is recognized as a national model and has been proven through quasi-experimental

studies to raise the quality, availability, and sustainability of family child care. In addition to growing our networks, we also act as the leading advocate for family child care and provide technical assistance to a broad range of communities nationally.

All Our Kin recognizes that diversity and opportunity are fundamental to children's lives and to

our work, and we seek to build a team that reflects the diversity we celebrate in our nation and

community. We welcome and encourage all qualified applicants who share our vision, as we want to engage all those who can contribute to our work and this mission.
