an evening to celebrate several victories advancing the care & education of young children in Maryland and raise funds to fuel our continued efforts.
Maryland just became the tenth state to establish paid family and medical leave with the passage of the Time to Care Act of 2022. This is a true victory for all workers, but especially for parents welcoming a new baby or adopted child into their family. Parents will no longer have to decide between taking time to care for their family or receiving a paycheck. Lawmakers also heard loud and clear that early care and education are priorities for Marylanders. That’s why they passed eight pieces of legislation this year to strengthen the child care industry and support families who rely on quality child care.
The first five years of a child’s life are the most critical. The first years are the time to care!
All proceeds benefit Maryland Family Network, which ensures young children, from birth through age five, have strong families, quality early learning environments, and a champion for their interests.
