The Maryland Early Learning Framework is important because it provides common goals for how parents, teachers, and early childhood education providers can support young children's learning. The research-based Framework incorporates the following:
- Maryland’s Early Learning Standards
- Ready for Kindergarten (R4K): Maryland’s Comprehensive Early Childhood Assessment System
- Supporting Every Young Learner: Maryland’s Guide to Early Childhood Pedagogy, Birth to Age 8
- The Early Childhood Family Engagement Framework: Maryland’s Vision for Engaging Families of Young Children
