Where is Room Planning?

The Room Planning app is your digital register. To find it:

Simply log in to Famly, and click on the 'Apps' section, then select the 'Room Planning' app.

An overview of your expected children each day.

In Famly, you can easily get an overview of the planned attendance in each room, and book your staff accordingly. The figures are based on the children's attendance plans, including any ad hoc sessions purchased. Below is an example of a 'Full days' overview with a specified start date.

How do I see a more detailed breakdown of attendance?

You can use the filters along the top of the page to decide the specifics of the register you want to see. You can filter by

  • Dates

  • Rooms in your setting

  • The ages of the children

  • By sessions (AM and PM or 'Detailed Breakdown')

Once you've decided on your filters, the children will be shown accordingly in the table below the graph.
The 'Staff Required' figure is calculated by using the required ratio that you entered in either your Room or Age Group settings.
The total amount of children expected in the entire nursery is indicated at the bottom under ‘Summary’.

The thermometer icon indicates that the child was marked as off sick.

Get the details of each group by clicking on the group title on the left. The details will reveal the attendance of each child in the specific group you selected.


Please note: The age next to each child is the age of the child on the date you have selected to view the register for.

How to print off a physical register

You can also use Room Planning to print out a paper register, if you choose. Of course, you can still sign children in and out of your setting in Famly.

To print a paper register:

  • First select Child Signature Fields (to sign the children in and out) or Staff Signature Fields (to sign the staff in and out) in the tick-boxes, if you'd like space for these on a print out.

  • Choose whether you'd like to show children's allergies and special dietary considerations as well.

  • When you're happy with how the physical register will look, you can select 'Print'
