    So far love it! Never had this many updates and photos! Push notifications font seem to link with app. I will see a push and open via app and notification won't go away until I clear it though.

  2. theelizabethjoy-avatar



    Since the update on 5/9/20 the "lesson plan" section isn't working. In 5/10 it was just showing blank pages despite the section being updated by my boss and on 5/11 it only showed the lesson plan for 5/11, no matter which day I selected. Which is not great since this is how I'm getting my work schedule. :/ *Edit on 5/14* After a quick email to their support desk they sent out an update to fix my problem.

  3. Nikki Beasley-avatar

    Its hands down getting a 5 Star from me. This app truly is the ultimate all in one app for teachers, the only thing missing is a grade book section. Although, they have extra sections that would allow you to put somekins of grade book in the app. Its very easy to use and if yo have to talk to someone from BW, they are all awesome.

  4. Amy Mercado-avatar

    Awesome program!. We get picture, videos, updates. We know what they ate. Get potty/diaper change notifications,

  5. Hussein El-Khaled-avatar

    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 This was never resolved after several interactions with the support team.

  6. Meyf Bamba-avatar

    Nothing is better than to have an eye on how your child is doing at daycare. Would definitely recommend

  7. Taylor Lechler-avatar

    I use this app for work, and have never had an issue. The only thing that I don't like is that of I close out the app, or open a new part in the app, I lose the note information I was working on. I found a way to work around that though.

  8. Kanisha Jones-avatar

    This app does a wonderful job and it keeps you updated on your child progress

  9. Jennifer Achinger-avatar

    Jennifer Achinger


    My Daughter goes here and she loves it. They update me everyday with how she is doing, how her day is going, and if she is in a good mood or not. Also everytime she eats, poops/pees, takes a nap, or get a booboo they will notify you by sending updates to your phone on the app. I love it. Amazing place, and the girls are just wonderful. I know my Daughter is in good hands when she is there while I work.

  10. Kristen Welch-avatar

    Very convenient and helps me keep up with what our children aresoing and allows me to have conversations with them based on what they were working on that day. Also it is awesome to have so many pictures of them and each how they have grown and matured over time.

  11. Selina Zamora-avatar

    Lag time on the app is a little bad but so neat! Love notifications as a parent! Potty time, nap, play, lunch and photos! So happy I'm parent using i loved to be informed what their doing.

  12. Adam Turner-avatar

    Great way to keep in touch with whats going on with your kids in daycare. They can upload pics to you and you know who checked your child in or out. Great app for sure!

  18. Deborah Germany-avatar

    Deborah Germany


    Good app for organizing and tracking daycare activities. Recent upgrades make it more user friendly.

  19. Brittany Davis-avatar

    It works pretty well only only thing i noticed was its it can be delayed at times but not often.

  20. Bonnie Rogers-avatar

    Awesome helps knowing how and what your kids are doing the only thing that would make it better is a video spot.

  21. Tracy Reutzel-avatar

    Love it! Daycare uses it to communicate how my boy is doing by sending pics and message updates.

  22. Rose stanley-avatar

    Keeps crashing when i open messages. I have uninstalled it and reinstalled it 3 times

    I absolutely love this app! I love seeing my son having fun throughout the day and seeing his schedule. My older son went to day care at the same place my younger one is now going. It really is peace of mind.

  34. Dejan Jovanović-avatar

    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.

  35. Mary Nahouse-avatar

    I'm an assistant teacher and it is nice to see all the details of each child's day and be able to communicate with each of their guardians. If the teachers/staff could communicate with one another, it would be perfect!

  36. Wilene Sanders-avatar

    The application is sensational! I get up to the minute information and I can see videos of my child instantly.

  37. Ronalyn Queal Seipler-avatar

    Love that they can post picture send messages total communicate with the parents and vice versa

  38. Lanaya Davis-avatar

  39. Gregory Rudinsky-avatar

    Gregory Rudinsky


    Great way to maintain communication

  40. gabriel denis-avatar

    Would give 5 stars if it was faster. It takes a while for the app to load when I want to check a notification. Beside that it is great. I like to know what is going on with my little guy when I am at work and I love to see the pictures of what he is doing.

  41. Nicole Tonelli-avatar

    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!

  42. Rachel Clough-avatar

    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.

    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.

  47. jason hess-avatar

    Very awesome way to see the day of your kiddo!! It is really cool that this app allows daycare professionals to display their care of your child!

  48. Devin Odom-avatar

    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.

  49. matthew mcconaughy-avatar

    Just started using this for our new day care...everything you need on one app. And they update you all the time. Great working app

    I love it. The teachers keep me posted all day long with what's going on with my child on a daily.

  57. Anthony Blando-avatar

    Functional but would be nice to be able to use app from home to track food/sleep outside of daycare

  58. Charmion Anderson-avatar

    Elizabeth Tucker


    Our parents love it and the administrators are coming around to it! The teachers who use it like it a lot. They like the support they get when they have questions from Brightwheel. Only thing they commented on was they wished the lesson plans could be visible to the parents as well.

  61. Allison Stadick-avatar

    Allison Stadick


    Very informative and great way of communication.

    Love the updates & photos

  64. Nicole Osborn-avatar

    Should be able to watch live camera feed from daycare though

  77. Cassandra Waggoner-avatar

    Cassandra Waggoner


    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 :)

  78. Adam Ledbetter-avatar

    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!

  79. MeMyself AndI-avatar

    As a parent and as a teacher I love this app. Just wish, from the teacher side, we could correct a mistake as a group. Ie: correcting lunch items/times as a class vs having to go back individually.

  80. George Craffey-avatar

    My daycare is now using your app but I am unable to download it keeps saying waiting on download and to stand up for good 10 minutes and nothing changes can I get some help on this

  81. ShaQuon Ward-avatar

    Great app. What will make brightwheel better altogether is if there was two separate apps one for teachers and staff. The other app for parents. Some of the parents are teachers where their go to school or daycare.

  82. Matthew Tanner-avatar

    App was working great until two weeks ago, now the qr code scanner never recognizes the bar code at school. I have reinstalled, restarted, logged in/out. No success.

  83. Amy Chantasirivisal-avatar

    Amy Chantasirivisal


    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. ♥️

  84. Fresh Air Daycare-avatar

    Fresh Air Daycare


    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!

  85. 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.

  86. Cindy So-avatar

    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.

  87. A S-avatar

    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.

  88. Rachel Marsh-avatar

    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!

  89. Joe Parris-avatar

    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.

  90. Mike Schreader-avatar

    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.

  91. Maggie Cooper-avatar

    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!

  92. Stacie Fournier-avatar

    Stacie Fournier


    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.

  93. Aaron Leedy-avatar

    I love seeing all the updates from the teachers, and the pictures. Sometimes when my son is being really cute they send video. I also like the idea of being able to write messages to the teachers. Great experience, great idea and great App

  94. A Google user-avatar

    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.

  95. Sydney Brown-avatar

    App works great. Although it must be a hassle for already busy staff to post updates, I sure appreciate them, especially the photos. They brighten my day and make me feel a little more a part of my grandbaby's life even at a distance.

  96. Domonique Chavez-avatar

    Domonique Chavez


    This app is very nice, and reassuring. however I wish there was a live feed to the classrooms, kinda of like a baby monitor or the cox security systems that would be very nice, and that is an app I would pay to subscribe to. Thank you.

  97. Devin Macklin-avatar

    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

  98. Gilbert Ray-avatar

    Love this app I can see my son while i work it's great

  99. Kemi S.-avatar

    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.

  100. Juan Castaneda-avatar

    This is a great app. The fact that you get notifications of when they get dropped off or picked up is great. Able to communicate with the school with ease. Definitely recommend this for all day cares and preschools
