CoLab, part of the Telethon Kids Institute, has developed the Bright Tomorrows app because parents and families need trusted, evidence-based advice in their hands. Parents wanted information that related specifically to their children’s developmental needs, and that prompted them to easily and actively to support their children’s brain development during their daily routines. The Bright Tomorrows app suggests everyday activities or meaningful moments that best suit the strengths and interests of a family, including aligning the ideas with each of their children’s developmental needs. As parents and carers try to adapt their families to COVID-19 circumstances, the app is being adapted to ‘nudge’ more physical activity based moments to help parents and carers keep their children active through this time at home.

The Bright Tomorrows parent app is free to download at the Apple or Google Play store. Further information is available via the Bright Tomorrows website
