Dear Jessica,

On behalf of the entire team here at All Our Kin, we want to wish you a wonderful holiday season! We hope this season fills you with the love and joy that you bring to so many families and children.


As we close out the year, we can’t wait to come together on December 21 for our virtual holiday celebration. There will be activities, moments to reflect on this past, and a fun dance party to follow. Make sure to sign up in the newsletter below to join in on the fun — we look forward to seeing you!


While we know this is the busiest time for many, and that a family child care educator’s work rarely ends, we hope that you find time for the rest and relaxation you so richly deserve.

Sending you love and holiday cheer,

The All Our Kin Team
