Last week, Governor Lamont signed an Executive Order establishing a Blue-Ribbon Panel on Child Care. The panel will be tasked with developing a five year strategic plan that addresses child care affordability, educator compensation, and workforce shortages.

All Our Kin's CEO Jessica Sager has been selected to join the panel alongside 21 representatives from business, government and the child care sector. We look forward to partnering with others to ensure that the needs and experiences of family child care educators are reflected in the final strategic plan.

Look out for opportunities to share your expertise with the panel in future newsletters!
