“I am so glad to have discovered this fountain of wisdom! As a new parent, I often lacked confidence in my parenting skills or was ambivalent in which trends to follow. With the advice that Bright By Text brings, I know that I am providing my child with stimulating and fun activities. The tips and info given come from experts which makes it foolproof. I like the simple yet effective tasks that can be done on the go and with minimal materials. Because the biggest brain growth occurs in the first 3 years of a child’s life, this program is invaluable! The activities also provide excellent opportunities for bonding with the child for all caregivers involved. Thank you for creating such wonderful experiences”.  Katya, Parent, Brooklyn, NY
“It’s really exciting to have a service like this as a first time parent! There is a ton of information out there, but Bright by Text gives you simple, easy to use, and helpful information that has scientific backing.  They’ve done the information sorting for you, and it’s a huge relief for expectant parents,” said Derek, an expectant father and subscriber of Bright by Text.
“There is a lot of information out there for expectant mothers, but it can be hard to know which sources to trust,” said Bright by Three President and CEO Jean McSpadden. “We want parents to have the best research based information right at their fingertips.”
This is an excellent service! I especially love the fact that content is offered in Spanish, because it helps me to better connect with the families of a demographic that I serve.  2017 National Smart Start Conference Attendee

In addition to national content, Bright by Text is working with Quarryville Library to partner with local community agencies to bring you information on this platform.  Want to know when there’s a free museum day?  Complimentary vision screenings in our area?  These types of messages will come directly to your mobile phone!’  And of course we’ll contribute information about our library’s programs and services that would benefit your child!

Please note that while this service is free to all patrons, individual message and data rates may apply.
