We found that this works great when allowed to integrate with our LMS and our chat platform because it automates the login process, each time a student logs into the chat it automatically tells us and generates a report that goes to the provost. This is also great for test taking and it limits the need for a proctor, we use it for multiple elements within student attendance.

Any preschool can benefit from brightwheel, no matter the size. Brightwheel is also excellent for billing, which is especially helpful for schools that do not have other databases and billing systems. Because our school is a PS-12, it is a little cumbersome to have brightwheel along with another management system that we use school-wide. It would be nice to have a separate price point that does not include the things that another database system does for schools that are required to use what the older grades also use.

We didn't evaluate other software, this came highly recommended to us by our sister school and we opted to utilize that same program, ultimately it was a smart choice because leadership ended up combining student attendance and this made it easier to keep track on students from both universities. This has been a great choice for us.

Brightwheel does much more for the preschool level than FACTS does. The creators of this app know early childhood. The company also provides helpful webinars that are unrelated to their software, such as staff retention or ways to market. They understand the business of early childhood and exist to make the lives of providers easier.
