Bright by Text

WPSU has teamed up with Bright by Text, a national parent texting program, to put expert tips, games and child development information directly into the hands of parents and caregivers. ​We are proud to offer a unique resource like Bright by Text as children are learning from home and families can’t access the services they need.

The FREE subscription texting service includes topics like brain development, games and activities, health and wellness, STEM, safety and more. And subscribers can customize their subscription to receive texts for multiple age groups and subjects.

Bright by Text partners with experts like PBS, Vroom, Sesame Street, CDC, and others to develop content for families with children aged prenatal to age eight. In addition to expert content, Bright by Text includes messages about information and resources specific to the central Pennsylvania community, like digital library resources, food pantries, and preschool open enrollment periods.

As we at WPSU build our network of community partners, parents and caregivers can feel assured that they are receiving important local announcements and information.
