A home base to support you and your family

Stay Play Grow was developed by the Early Learning Lab, a team of early childhood experts, women, and working moms.

We designed the app to ensure parents and caregivers of children ages 0-5 have quality and easy-to-access resources when they need them most.

The app offers content for families in English and Spanish.

Quality Content for Families

Our team of early childhood development and technology experts at the Early Learning Lab curates the resources in Stay Play Grow. As we develop or review content for the app, we include resources that help build healthy, strong bonds with children and make learning together fun and easy for families. 

We also look for content that is research-informed and developmentally appropriate for children 0-5, engaging and informative, from reputable sources, free or free to try, and accessible on mobile. The range of resources in the app aligns with the Center for the Study of Social Policy’s Protective Factors Framework, a comprehensive approach to meeting the needs of families.
