Your Digital Backpack

Welcome to Your Digital Backpack!

Your Digital Backpack is a new initiative that brings together trusted organizations across the state to share free early learning resources and information for parents and caregivers. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about disruptions to school and child care routines, family finances and access to needed resources. MPT, together with PNC Grow Up Great, is here to help all Maryland families find the information they need during this challenging time.

Watch MPT daily for Your Digital Backpack updates and learn about resources to support your family’s health, safety and early learning at-home.
