Teachers have more quality time to write lessons, thanks to brightwheel
Preschool & child care
Shareable lesson plans
When Crystal started looking for a new parent communication tool, she was fed up with the former app they were using. Even though her staff were logging updates, parents would receive blank reports.
Enter, brightwheel. Crystal was floored by not only the reliability and ease of parent Messaging but also all the other benefits brightwheel offered. The Support team got back to her right away if she had any questions, and she now can’t imagine running her centers without all the different brightwheel features they use such as billing and shareable lesson plans.
We love brightwheel. It’s 10x better than other childcare software tools we’ve used!
A flawless onboarding process
With 30 staff members across two locations, Crystal didn’t expect implementing brightwheel to be as easy as it was.
Her Onboarding coach recommended starting out with the Demo Rooms on brightwheel so teachers could familiarize themselves with the app. This and the online trainings made all the teachers feel confident right from the beginning, even though some were less tech savvy than others. They collaborated with each other to learn the app, which made it that much more fun and exciting to dive into all brightwheel had to offer.
Crystal also loved how simple it was to export student and family information from her old childcare management system and into brightwheel. The Roster Upload tool took only a few clicks, and, just like that, their school information was all imported into brightwheel.
Easy lesson creation and progress sharing with parents
Crystal’s program prides itself in its use of Creative Curriculum to guide children in becoming independent, self-confident, and inquisitive learners. Before brightwheel, the lesson plan creation process for teachers and sharing information with families took multiple steps. They’d first need to write their lesson plans, submit them to the directors, make changes, and then post them to parent boards.
Now, Crystal’s team simply adds lesson plans to brightwheel and they are immediately centralized in one place for both staff and families. Even better, lesson plans can easily be shared amongst classrooms and updated for reuse the following year.
Teachers can now put more focus into their lesson plans because they’ve saved time and headspace with brightwheel’s easy app.
