Bright By Text

Grandparents And Grandchildren

United Way of Kankakee and Iroquois Counties has teamed up with Bright by Text to send free activities, games, and resources right to your cell phone. Messages are targeted to your child's age and include information on child development, language and early literacy, health and safety, behavioral tips, and more.

Mother and Child

Care for a young child?

Bright by Text is for anyone who cares for and loves a child, prenatally through age 8: parents, parents-to-be, grandparents, babysitters, aunties and uncles, neighbors, friends, teachers, and more. Interactions a child has with adult caregivers at this stage of their life set the foundation for future learning, behavior, and health. Bright by Text shares fun and easy activity ideas, positive parenting tips and resources, and information about the child's physical development.
