Overall Satisfaction with brightwheel
Brightwheel is a fabulous app that connects us to parents. We use it for signing in and out, with each parent/pick-up person being given their own code. We use it to record our daily activities, such as diapering, eating, etc. We can send photos to parents and messages that appear on their phones as a text would. Our parents love brightwheel.

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.

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.
