Training and Technical Assistance

Through technical assistance, All Our Kin builds the capacity of organizations, unions, child care resource and referral agencies, educator groups, and state and local governments across the country to effectively increase the supply, quality, and sustainability of family child care. Our approach is one of partnership and collaboration: we value the relationships that technical assistance partners have with the family child care educators in their communities, and leverage the deep knowledge that partners have about the challenges and opportunities in their local early childhood landscape. 

Here is an overview of the strands of technical assistance offered by All Our Kin.

Business Train-the-Trainer Institute

Our mission is to support the success of every family child care provider, which is why we are offering a new 5-day Train-the-Trainer Institute in June 2020 to equip trainers from across the country to lead our Family Child Care Business Series. Our comprehensive 10-week series, based on the principles of adult learning theory and designed specifically for family child care, covers everything from contracts and policies to financial management. All Our Kin will offer virtual support, curriculum materials, and a detailed training guide to trainers as they implement this series in their communities after the Institute.

New Jersey Family Childcare Landscape Report

Recently, All Our Kin was asked to conduct a comprehensive landscape assessment of family child care in New Jersey, resulting in this report. In addition to data about the New Jersey landscape as a whole, this report contains information about the state's key early care and education stakeholders, as well as deep dives on four major New Jersey cities: Camden, Newark, Patterson, and Trenton. The report concludes with recommendations, based on our learnings and nearly two decades of experience in the field, that we believe will help New Jersey create the conditions necessary for family child care, children, and families to thrive. The report also serves as the basis for exploring potential All Our Kin technical assistance initiatives in New Jersey.
