Happy Holidays from your

All Our Kin family!


As 2022 comes to an end, we’re looking back on all of the wonderful moments that we’ve shared with you, our family of educators; moments of connection, laughter, learning and growth.

The start of the year was challenging, with the resurgence of COVID, the fall of federal funding and the exhaustion that many felt. Despite the challenges, you pushed through! And above all, you continued to pour love and compassion into the children and families in your care. 

We hope you embrace this holiday season as a time to pour back into yourselves, too.

Another notable moment was partnering with you to launch our brand new video on the important work that family child care educators take on each day! We want to send a special thanks to Dora, Bernadette and Ruth, who are featured sharing their incredible journey. This wouldn’t have come to fruition without their time and commitment. 

We wish you and your families a happy and healthy holiday! May you find time for rest. And may you be surrounded by the love that you give to so many others.

We look forward to a successful year ahead! 

With love,

The All Our Kin Family
