MCPER is dedicated to disseminating information that supports families as they develop strong and healthy learners. To that end, we want to make our readers aware of a new texting service that provides parents and caregivers of kids prenatal to age 8 with information from early childhood experts on topics including developmental milestones; brain development; mental health and resilience; social-emotional competence; STEM; language and literacy; nutrition; health; and local events, resources, and activities.

Bright by Text is free to all Texans. To receive tips and learning games to your phone, text "#TexasKids" to 2-74448 or sign up online.

For more information, visit the Bright by Text website, view an informational flyer, or view a postcard provided in English and Spanish.
