    I love this app! The features are amazing and it allows me to keep in touch with my littles while they're at school plus I can easily be in contact with the teachers. I'm more at ease and look forward to the updates I receive every day!

    The idea of this app is awesome. IF IT WORKS!!!!! Still Missing push notifications. It often missing notifications like check ins and photos. The time on the notification is off too. Checked with the daycare center and they have all notification on time but it's the app that not delivered it to us. It would skip some item and send out next item push notifications randomly. The note was entered 10:30 am but the app notification didn't receive until 2pm. My phone was on WiFi at work all day.

    It's weird that they haven't figured out how to do push notifications. They are late most of the time. Sometimes I would even see an event by manually refreshing and then get a notification of the same many minutes later. It's THE thing you need to get right for a childcare app, time matters when something is urgent.

    All of a sudden I am getting charged a $17 some odd cent processing fee without making any changes to my account, then was told I should have it deducted straight from checking and the charge would go away and it still hasn't! Daycare is already been raised by 3% and to get charged another 2% processing fee per week is outrageous. I don't know how to stop it.

    Since the last 2 updates, I think the QR code to check in/out my daughter hast been reading. I deleted all app data and uninstall, reinstalled still isn't working. Most other parents at daycare see to have iPhones and the same QR code works for them

    The app is severly lacking. Cant do most things on the app (easily) have to use the website anyway. But oh well. So far brightwheel as a whole, i like.

    Slow slow slow customer support. Our daycare changed to brighteheel then changed back to our original application within two weeks. Not impressed. Though the app itself has promise, customer service did it in.

    It's a good app but you should put numbers on the side of each child's name of how many photos they have. Then it be an Awesome App!😍

    I do like the app but I am a teacher and a parent. I would love to be able to use the app as a parent as well as a teacher but I can not because I i have a teacher account would rate higher is there was a way I could use it as a parent account as well

    I have always loved this app until I have had now 4 issues with payments. I have had two different occasions where a parent has been able to withdraw money from my account without my concent or prior warning. Brightwheel says they can't do anything about it! I have had another issue where I didn't receive any payments for an entire week! I have also had a pending payment that Brightwheel knew nothing about and couldn't give me any answers. They are very good at apologizing but can't help!

    Received a text to sign up for my grandson... would not let me... kept asking for information that was not given to me. Kind of bogus! Edit 12/04/19....after receiving an email explaining how to use the app, I have decided to reevaluate my review. I was able to signup on the app with not much problems. While it did work with better instructions it was not the easiest app, but deserves better than a I have given it a three-star instead.

    Absolutely love love love this app. Our daycare provider recommended it and it has been so much fun Since installing on my phone. I'm able to track everything that my two year old is doing on a daily basis and it's just really fun to know how her day is going. Every parent needs this app if your daycare provider utilizes it.

  25. notkeel-avatar



    Great way to see what how/what your kid is doing in daycare. A few times the app has been down which is not great. Once app was not updating and my wife wasnt answering her phone, so i had to swing by the daycare to pick up my son. Get there to find out she already got him and the app was just down.

    I love being able to communicate with the caregivers. They inform me when I need baby food, clothes, medicines, etc. Plus, seeing photos of our happy grandson throughout the day!!! Smiles mean a lot!!!

    Maggie Cooper


    So thankful our son's daycare uses Brightwheel. His teaches post updates throughout the day about his meals, playtime, and books. They also send us pictures! I love seeing my baby's smiles and knowing he's happy while I'm at work. It's also super easy to message with the caretakers. The monthly billing auto-pay makes it so I have to do one less thing each month. This is a reliable and well designed app. Thank you Brightwheel team!

  28. Devin Macklin-avatar

    Devin Macklin


    Absolutely love this app.. only thing I would suggest is that you create a way to make it easier to revisit an older date. Instead of having to scroll all the way down it would be nice to be able to select a date I want to visit that I may have missed

    I love that our childcare provider is able to send updates and pictures. It makes my day to get random notifications. The app is convenient and easy to use

    This app is ONLY iPhone friendly. I recently switched from an iPhone to a Samsung Galaxy S10+. I am now unable to scan my daughter in and out of school with the QR reader. The Brightwheel app does not support Android's ability to scan QR codes.

    This is an awesome idea! I am able to keep up with my lil ones while I'm at work or busy doing my day to day running around. It has helped me keep on schedule with their potty training and nap schedules as well as what they are learning so I can point it out at home. The daycare is also very awesome at keeping me informed on when supplies are low so I can restock :)

    The customer support for this app is second to none. I was having an issue being able to sign in/out my kid. After uninstalling/reinstalling the app, double checking the permissions, and restarting my phone, I emailed customer support (around 5pm). I got a reply in minutes and we talked back and forth as I gave them information they needed. The next morning the app worked perfectly! This is how customer support is supposed to be. Great job!

    I actually use this app with my nanny and it's been a fantastic way to give me peace of mind about what my kid is up to every day. It's worked better than text messaging because I can invite extended family members into the app too. I have also started using the app on the weekends so the nanny can keep up with my son when she's not here. ♥️

    I love this app. To be able to track my little ones day is great. Only complaint is when it updated you can no longer see when the child is checked in or out. I like to see this due to me not bring the only person picking up or dropping off.

    Helicopter parenting has never been more streamlined! Now I get push notifications every time my baby poops, naps, eats, or does something cute at daycare. And I love it! Pictures, videos, messages from daycare - it's as close to peace of mind as a new parent can get.

  68. Rachel Marsh-avatar

    Rachel Marsh


    Didn't realize how great it was till we switched daycares and had to use Tadpoles (blech). Easy to send/receive messages during the day. I got updates as they log activity and took pictures - loved seeing pictures or video of my baby during the day! Filter feed by photo, feeding, potty, etc. Nice to have option to change notification preferences. I wish our new daycare would use this app!

  69. Joe Parris-avatar

    Joe Parris


    only reason they remove the star is because my phone number on my profile with switched with my wife's and they had to delete our accounts in order to get that information updated. it should be updateable within the app. otherwise I think it's a great app that is intuitive and very helpful especially for new parents.

    Super easy to use and allows you to see what your little ones doing while you work.The app tells me every time he goes potty and if it was a 1 or a 2 and i get pictures sometimes too!Definately helps ease your mind while your busy. With your child in daycare.

    It's great with photo updates and activity updates! I can even type in messages to my baby's care givers without having to call into the daycare. This has gone a long way to put my mind at ease about my baby being away from me.

    Excellent way to keep up to speed on what my kids do during the day. Their teachers send pictures and messages regularly so if you don't have a communicative daycare/school your mileage may vary. Would give 5 stars if there was a way to "like" or comment on pictures.

    So far great! But I would love to be able to set a notification tone for it so that it's different from my default; it would help me to know it's a message from baby's teachers and know I need to check it quickly
