The Building Blocks of Parenting

Be Informed | Be Connected | Be Inspired

The early years in a child’s life are critical. Research shows that 90% of a child’s brain develops by age 5. Their early experiences, relationships, and environment all factor into that development.

Grail Family Services’ Building Blocks of Parenting™ (BBP) App builds parents’ capacity to support their child’s healthy development and learning by providing anywhere/anytime access to:

  1. The latest research on child development 
  2. Supportive connections to other parents 
  3. A checklist of research-based child developmental milestones
  4. Notifications about community resources, learning activities and more

The BBP App is free, and available in English and Spanish on both iOS and Android platforms. Kids don’t come with instructions. Now there’s the BBP App for that!

The BBP App was developed with financial support from the S.H. Cowell Foundation, the Heising-Simons Foundation, and the Castellano Family Foundation. It is being implemented through a partnership with FIRST 5 Santa Clara County and the Santa Clara County Office of Education/Head Start.
