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.  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.  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. 

All Our Kin first opened its doors in a housing development in New Haven, Connecticut in 1999. Today, we serve over 600 family child care providers, who have the capacity to educate and care for more than 3,600 children, in five Connecticut cities and New York City. Our ambitious strategic growth plan calls for us to add one new site per year and launch a new train-the-trainer service line. 

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.

Where Do Workers Living on Low Incomes Stand in the Post-Pandemic Economy?

An article in Politico looks at the gains and losses—actual and potential—for lower-wage workers in the current economic climate. Katrin Kark, LISC’s director of workforce innovations, who is quoted in the piece, cautions that increased wages don’t suffice to stabilize finances or create economic mobility across the board. “Higher entry wages alone aren’t enough to close…opportunity gaps,” she says.
