What's a Holiday RSVP in Famly?

To get an overview of attendance, your child's setting may send out a holiday RSVP request - this could be over a period where time off is more common, such as over summer or Christmas. This is basically a request from the setting to let them know if your child we attend or not. Knowing how many children will be present, allows your child's setting to plan better.


How will I receive a request to input my child's holiday?

Once the nursery has set up a holiday period, it will be visible to you in the News Feed (as below) and on your child's profile.


How do I reply to a holiday RSVP?

If you want to respond to a holiday period in the News feed, click on the green button ‘Report Holiday’ in the post (as above).
