Bright By Text

Detroit PBS KIDS has teamed up with Bright by Text to bring the program to the Detroit community! The program, already offered in Colorado, New York, California, and other communities around the nation, offers parents and caregivers expert tips and resources for children prenatal to 5 right at their fingertips.

Did you know that in the early years a child’s brain is developing at a faster rate than it will at any other point in their life? The interactions that a child has with adult caregivers at this stage of their life set the foundation on which all later learning, behavior, and health depends.

Bright by Text creative.jpgBright by Text helps parents and caregivers make the most out of these interactions by illustrating fun and easy activities, providing positive parenting tips and resources, tips for aiding a child’s physical development, and much more. The program is proven to build nurturing caregiver-child relationships, and positively impact a child’s healthy development and school readiness.

In addition to expert content, Bright by Text includes messages about events and resources specific to the Detroit community, like free museum days, health clinics, and preschool open enrollment periods.

To sign up, parents and caregivers with children under 5 can text the word "DETROITPBS" to 274448* or follow the weblink below. They will receive 2 to 5 text messages per week, and each message includes a link to a landing page with more detail, short modeling videos, and links to related resources. To sign up additional children, simply text "DETROITPBS" to 274448 an additional time for each child.
