Maryland Family Engagement Coalition


Promoting Family Engagement in Maryland

In 2012, early childhood educators, policymakers, service providers, and community advocates came together to form the Maryland Family Engagement Coalition. The group developed Maryland's Early Childhood Family Engagement Framework for the state that was 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.
