 \  Maryland Family Engagement Coalition

In 2012, child development experts, policymakers, early care and education providers, and community advocates formed the Maryland Family Engagement Coalition. The group developed the Early Childhood Family Engagement Framework for the state, approved by the Maryland Early Childhood Advisory Council and State Board of Education the following year.

 

Coalition Mission

The mission of the Maryland Family Engagement Coalition is to support early care and education providers’ efforts toward increasing family engagement practices that improve outcomes for children, parents, and families.

 

Coalition Vision

The vision of the Maryland Family Engagement Coalition is to create stronger partnerships, foster communication, and develop best practices that will serve as a national model for connecting early care and education providers, parents, families, the community, state agencies, and beyond.
