Welcome to the Maryland Families Engage Parents and Families Page!

Did you know: You are your child’s first teacher? In other words, children learn through experiences with family members and the behavior they see and hear.

On this page, you will find a variety of activities and events dedicated to empowering you in your role as your child’s first teacher. After all, when parents and families take pride in this important role, they develop long-lasting partnerships with teachers and providers that ensure children’s success in school and in life.

The purpose of the Maryland Families Engage website and the Parents and Families page is to help you recognize and capitalize on those “teachable moments” or opportunities to build skills and reinforce lessons learned every day.
