Brightwheel is a wonderful program we use at Emmanuel Faith Preschool to help keep you updated on your child’s day. Brightwheel integrates attendance, messaging, daily reports, photos, videos, calendars, online bill pay, and much more. Parents have access to their own child’s profile where you are able to message the teachers via the Brightwheel app. For example, if your child isn’t feeling well or they got a scrape while out the playground, our teachers are able to notify you in an instant. Each classroom is equipped with an iPad and these devices are used solely for Brightwheel and are not for the children to use. In no way does using Brightwheel take the attention of the teachers away from the children. In fact, it is quite the opposite for Brightwheel helps our teachers improve their skills in observation and communication and they will only be using the devices at designated times when they are not actively supervising.
