Zero to Three, a nonprofit that works to promote the health and development of infants and toddlers throughout the United States, has just released a great new policy paper highlighting staffed family child care networks as the best way to improve quality in family child care. And they’ve highlighted All Our Kin as an organization providing “the services and supports that research has found to be critical to improving the quality of family child care.”
According to the new report, 22 states and territories currently have at least one staffed family child care network. Zero to Three praises staffed family child care networks, such as All Our Kin, for “not only supporting quality of care but doing so in a way that builds upon the strengths of a family setting, unlike other strategies that may better suit the needs of center-based care.”
