Introducing a New Childhood Development App for Parents, GROW -- Available for Download Today for FREE + #Giveaway

"Global music sensation Shakira might be best known for her big music hits and dance moves, but she is also passionate about motherhood and understanding the tools needed for raising healthy and happy kids. To help make sure that other moms across the globe have access to the resources they need, she has collaborated with Fisher-Price and a group of globally renowned experts from top foundations around the world on a brand new early childhood development app tool called GROW.  The app is free for iOS and Android, available in Spanish and English, and features tips customized to a child’s age to foster early childhood development from birth and through age five as well as a timeline feature to track developmental tools. 

GROW is a true passion project for Shakira and she is looking forward to helping bring information from the best minds in early childhood development to parents from all walks of life in a free, easy-to-use app.  What’s so unique about the GROW app as compared to other apps that function similarly is that they tend to focus either on baby or school aged children.  GROW is the only app that spans from birth to five years.  Additionally, GROW puts early childhood development experts at your fingertips—a luxury not all parents had until now."
Here is more about GROW and the many features of this new FREE app, available starting today..

A free bi-lingual app for parents from Shakira, Fisher-Price, AEIOTu, Vroom, Kinedu, Fun Learning and North American Montessori Teachers Association. The app features tips customized to a child’s age to foster early childhood development from birth and through age five, as well as a timeline feature to track developmental milestones.
