Dear Jessica,

Today is World Teachers Day — a day celebrating the important role educators play in the lives of children. As the first teachers to our infants and toddlers, we want to take the time to give a special “thank you” for your guidance and active participation in their development.

Learning involves so much more than ABCs and 123s, and your care and knowledge has an immeasurable impact on families and all of us here at All Our Kin. We hope you take this day to celebrate yourselves and the amazing work that you do each and every day!

To ensure that EVERYONE recognizes how critical your work is, we hope you will join us in making your voices heard at the polls! Over the next month we’ll be sharing information and resources to help you prepare and spread the word on voting this election! You can follow us on Facebook for important reminders and updates. 

Wishing you a happy and festive fall season,

The All Our Kin Team

Learn in Nature!

Outdoor Education Workshop Series 

All Our Kin’s Outdoor Education Workshop Series begins October 15! This hands-on curriculum is designed to support family child care programs in creating educational experiences that develop children’s relationships with nature, their health and developmental holistic growth.

The first workshop will take place at Silverman Farm and Randalls Farm Preserve in Easton, CT, where we will learn about animal feeding, wildlife preservation, and how to incorporate environmental care practices in your program.
