Top Parent App is a free mobile solution that helps young children at home minimize learning loss through parental engagement. It is especially designed to support parents from low-income communities to help prepare their children for ongoing success in school and life. A new version of the app will integrate multimedia content that includes educational videos for children, parent-facing videos to scaffold learning through play, gamified worksheets and monthly assessments that are mapped to an accelerated learning curriculum to take the child from emergent to foundational literacy and numeracy (FLN).
