All Our Kin, Inc., a nationally-recognized, Connecticut-based nonprofit organization that trains, supports, and sustains community child care providers to ensure that children and families have the foundation they need to succeed in school and in life, seeks a Bilingual Business Coach to provide mentoring, coaching, training, technical assistance and support to family child care providers.
All Our Kin first opened its doors in a New Haven housing development in 1999 with two staff members, six mothers, six children, and one core belief: all children deserve access to high-quality early learning opportunities. Through our programs, family child care professionals succeed as business owners; working parents find stable, high-quality care for their children; and our youngest and most vulnerable children receive the early learning experiences that prepare them to succeed in school and in life. Today, we serve over 400 family child care providers in New Haven, Bridgeport, Norwalk and Stamford, with a new office opening in New York City in 2018; these parents and educators in turn serve over 2,400 children in our community.
