As a Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) resource, the Maryland Families Engage website was designed to help build a community of support for those who care for and work with children. Our database of resources contains links to child development, family engagement initiatives, mental health, nutrition, literacy and more. You can sort these resources by topics and share your findings with families, friends and colleagues.

Have an event you’d like to promote to teachers, providers, parents and families? Found a great resource you’d like to share with others? Feel free to submit your events or resources through the links on the appropriate pages.
