When it comes to family engagement, it’s never too early to ENGAGE, CONNECT AND LEARN.

The Maryland Families Engage website was designed to help build a community of support for those who care for and work with young children. Our database of resources contains links to child development, family engagement initiatives, research, and more. You can sort these resources by topics and locations, and then share your findings with families, friends, or colleagues.

Have an event you’d like to promote to early care and education 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.

We invite you to visit the Maryland Families Engage website often to share resources and help promote school readiness, positive parent-child relationships, and the benefits of family engagement!
