Happy Holidays! This year has been an exciting one for All Our Kin, full of tremendous growth. As families continue to struggle with the economic crisis, we have been working hard to ensure that parents have the child care they need to continue supporting their families and that children spend their days in safe, loving, educational environments. We partnered with agencies across the state to train family child care providers in the use of Connecticut's Early Learning Guidelines, have begun to license providers in Bridgeport, Norwalk and greater Fairfield county, and will soon be launching an Earn Benefits program that will help families identify and access much-needed resources.
Your support for All Our Kin makes it possible for children to receive the high-quality early learning experiences they need and deserve; furnishes working parents with more child care options; and empowers caregivers with the skills and resources they need to move out of poverty and open successful child care businesses. We are enormously grateful to you for making our work possible. Each one of you is essential to our success, and we cannot possibly thank you enough.
We are looking forward to continuing our work this upcoming year, as we strive to ensure that our communities' women and children have the foundations they need to succeed.
All our best for a joyous holiday and happy New Year,
Jessica and Janna
