Bright by Text

Bright by Text is a nationwide text messaging service that helps parents and caregivers of children prenatal to age eight make the most of everyday interactions.

Through free tips, information, games and resources, Bright by Text is proven to build nurturing caregiver-child relationships, strengthen families, promote healthy child development and improve school readiness.

Bright by Text: promoting your child's healthy development

Our mission is to help all families give kids a bright beginning so they can grow into healthy, happy and successful adults. We achieve this by equipping families with tools and information to promote their child’s healthy development through the most pivotal stages of growth during the earliest years of life. We partner with pediatricians, researchers and expert early childhood organizations to develop evidence-based content that is accessible for any family.

Kids don’t come with instructions. That’s why Bright by Text sends the information you need most for raising little ones, from pregnancy through age 8. Available in English and Spanish languages, the text messages include a link to a landing page with more detail, links to related resources and often short modeling videos. Bright by Text provides bite-sized doses of targeted messages based on your child’s age.
