Dear Jessica,

Happy Latinx Heritage Month! We're proud to celebrate the rich history and endless achievements of Latinx communities, not just this month, but all year round! This year's theme Unidos: Inclusivity for a Stronger Nation, highlights the importance of bringing together diverse voices and perspectives in helping to build a stronger nation. All Our Kin wouldn’t be what it is without the voices and immeasurable contributions of our Latinx staff and family child care educators!

This Latinx Heritage Month, we look forward to shining a spotlight on our staff and educators, and the amazing work that they do every day to care for children and families. If you're interested in participating in our spotlight series, we invite you to fill out a quick questionnaire, or reach out to the Communications Team at

There are plenty.of ways you can celebrate! Check out this week’s newsletters for resources to enjoy in your home and programs.

With love,

The All Our Kin Team
