Maryland Family Network

Children are born learning. You can see it in a baby’s eyes when you pick her up from her crib. It’s in the joy of a toddler who takes his first steps. It’s in an infant’s smile who delights in playing peek-a-boo. And it’s in a four-year-old’s voice when she tells her mom and dad what she learned that day. A child’s innate capacity to learn is what drives us. We work tirelessly to fulfill our mission: ensuring children have strong families, quality early learning environments, and a champion for their interests.​​
