August is here, and we know many programs are getting ready to welcome students back to their centers. Below you’ll find tips to make this the easiest back-to-school yet, including setting up reusable billing plan templates and sharing attachments in messages from the mobile app!

Save time setting up billing plans for students with bill plan templates. A template will contain the key reusable components of the billing plan. You can add a few core templates for your tuition rates & schedules, then apply those to students in the bill plan creation process. Learn more.

For easier, more streamlined communication within your program, send message attachments straight from the brightwheel mobile app! Admin, staff, and guardians can now upload files, photos, and documents in message threads for private, secure, and intuitive messaging. Try it out now.

Did you know that 6 out of 10 programs joining brightwheel first heard about us from another director or owner? It’s now easier than ever to share the benefits of brightwheel with your fellow preschool directors. For August only, when you refer a childcare or preschool program to brightwheel, they'll get an exclusive 50% off Friends of brightwheel discount on their first two months!

💸 *Coming Soon* Payer-Level Autopay to make sure you get paid on time, every time.. You’ll be able to opt individual payers in or out of autopay regardless of whether it is required on a school-level.
