Our Mission is to empower parents and children to shine!

Our purpose and goal is to support families with young children (prenatal until their fourth birthday) in becoming prepared for school success, as well as empower and educate parents to be their child’s first and most important teacher.

Our Vision is to empower and encourage families to reach their highest potential. We help provide the best possible start in life for families through a nurturing and welcoming environment. We are committed to working in partnership with families while respecting individual and family strengths.

The Family Center of Queen Anne’s County is sponsored by the Queen Anne’s County Public School system.  Funding is provided by Maryland Family Network and our generous community. The Family Center is a Non-Profit Organization: 501 C-3 with Chesapeake Charities.
