Signing your child in or out of their setting, in the Famly app

You are able, as a parent or contact with a pickup role, to sign your child in and out of their setting from your Famly app. Naturally, it is still advisable to make contact with your child's key person, or a member of setting staff, if you're collecting your child.

To sign your child out of their setting, using the Famly app:

  • Log in to the Famly app

  • Click on your photo in the top, right-hand corner

  • Select 'Sign in/out' from the drop-down menu

  • A new window will open (as below) where you can fill in who will be collecting and when.

    • You can also add a new contact, if someone new is picking up

If your child's setting uses GPS sign-in

Some settings choose to enable a feature which only allows you to sign your child in and out when you're on-site. If this is the case, the app will request permission to use your location (as below). You need to allow this, then you can continue to sign your child in as normal


Signing your child in and out of their setting, using the separate sign-in screen

You are able, as a parent or contact with a pickup role, to sign your child in and out of their setting, using the separate sign-in screen. If your setting has this enabled, it will likely be on a device outside your child's room. It may look something like the below image:

To sign your child in or out using the separate sign in screen:

  • Enter your personal pin code (if your setting has chosen to enable this setting)

  • Click on your child's room (if applicable)

  • Click on your child

  • Enter when your child will be collected and by whom

  • Click 'Sign in'
    Naturally, it is still advisable to make contact with your child's key person, or a member of setting staff, if you're collecting your child.


Expected pick-up time

When you sign your child in or out, you can add an expected pick-up time, so your child's setting knows when you intend to collect your child.

You can also edit the expected pick-up time from your child's activity tab. To do this:

  • When you're on the activity feed, hover over the 'Expected pick-up time' until the pencil appears.

  • Click on the pencil and a new window will open (as below).

  • Enter a new pick-up time

  • Click 'Update'
