About All Our Kin

All Our Kin is a nationally recognized nonprofit organization that trains, supports, and sustains family child care educators 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 educators 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 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.

Before you start your job search online, make sure to keep in mind these critical elements to ensure that you find legitimate job postings and avoid scams. Consider using a virtual private network (VPN) when applying for jobs online to protect your personal information from cyber attacks. Be cautious of any job posting that asks for your personal bank account information, no matter how legitimate it seems. To verify that the job posting is authentic and the position is available, it's best to contact the company directly. Check the URL carefully to make sure you're on the verified website. Don't be fooled by job postings that promise quick and easy money, as they are often scams or fraudulent job opportunities. A reputable company will want to conduct interviews in a professional setting and not through electronic communication methods. Be on the lookout for job postings that use overly aggressive language or pressure tactics. Never give out your personal information or pay for a job opportunity that promises quick cash. Always take the time to research the company to ensure that it's a reputable and trustworthy organization that you can work for.
