In this season of gratitude, the brightwheel team would like to express our heartfelt thanks to you for the way you show up for our youngest learners every single day.

It is an honor to be your trusted early education partner, and we hope these new features and tips will support an easier, more streamlined day so you can focus on what matters most to you throughout the holidays and beyond.

NEW: Get more accurate reporting and delight families with sibling payments!

Introducing a simpler way to invoice families with siblings! No need to combine siblings onto a single billing plan. When you set up individual billing plans per student, families can now view the balances of all children together and pay for multiple invoices with a single payment (and a single fee!).

Celebrate program and class-wide activities with mobile-friendly newsletters.

Any staff member can share engaging newsletters with families on brightwheel. With the holidays around the corner, this is a great way to highlight recent events and reminders for what’s to come. Images can be selected from your brightwheel library, and you can add new ones by first sharing them to a Demo Student’s feed. Start building your next newsletter today – you can also learn more here!

Save time with easy online forms and digital signatures, all in one place for you and your families.

Create forms on brightwheel with both preset and custom fields. Once a form is approved, the information families have provided for the preset fields (such as address, desired start date, and child’s birthday) will automatically populate on the child’s brightwheel profile! You can use forms for everything from handbook acknowledgements to potluck sign ups. 🥘 Learn more here.
