Observations and documentation are essential elements of the Montessori method, and brightwheel makes it easy to track the progress of each child every time they explore Montessori materials and activities.   

Quickly select from a comprehensive set of materials, and log progress, photos, and notes for one or multiple children.

Specific materials can be also linked to lessons to make logging observations even easier! Add these lessons to weekly lesson plans and have a cohesive learning and tracking tool that your teachers can leverage for easier planning and reporting.

Log Observations

There are two ways to log observations in brightwheel: from the learning tab at the room level, or directly from a lesson. By logging observations you will be able to later report on progress.
