Dear Jessica,


Last week, All Our Kin's Jessica Sager stood alongside educators, parents and national leaders on Capitol Hill to call on Congress to include child care funding in the budget reconciliation package. The latest proposal by Senators Patty Murray and Tim Kaine plans to make up to $200 billion available for child care providers and families in all care settings. This proposal would be monumental for family child care and set us on the path forward to receive the long-term support needed! 

Help keep up the pressure by urging Senate leaders to make child care a top priority in the reconciliation process. There are ways you can take action! Check out this week's newsletter to see how.

We stand with you in solidarity,

The All Our Kin Team

  • Latest Market Rate Survey
  • Narrow Cost Analysis, required for the 1st time by the Federal Government, and
  • An Early Educator Compensation Scale requested by the General Assembly.

You’ll have an opportunity to review and comment on how these documents can be used to advocate for better family child care rates in the long-term. Spanish interpretation will be provided.
