How do I do a head count in Famly?

Setting up Head Counts in Famly

First, you will need to enable the Head count feature in Famly. You'll find this in the Settings menu, under Health and Safeguarding.

Giving staff permission to do head counts

Make sure that you also give your staff permission to do head counts- you can find this option in your Settings menu under Staff > Permissions > Basic > Manage Headcounts.


Where can I find 'Headcounts' in Famly?

You can do a headcount from two places in Famly: your room overview and in 'Safeguarding' . A head count can be done based on the children's room, status or tag but only children that are signed in will appear in the count list. To find 'Headcounts':

Simply log in to Famly, and click on the 'Apps' section, then select the 'Health and Safeguarding' app, and choose the 'Head Count' tab.

How to do a head count in the Room Overview:

  • When you're in the room overview select the head count icon. You'll find it next to your room settings, in the top right corner.

  • Select the room, tag or status for which you want to do a count for (see the image below)

  • Now, you can check a child off the count, by clicking on their image. This will make the child disappear from the list. You can only save a count if all checked-in children in a given tag, room, or status have been counted.

How to do a head count in 'Safeguarding'

  • In 'Safeguarding', you'll find the Head count tab next to your Accidents/Incidents tab

  • Click on the button called 'New head count', in the top right corner

  • Choose the room, tag and/or status you want to do a head count for

  • Just as with the head count done via the room overview, you mark a child as counted by clicking on their image. This will make the child disappear from the list. You can only save a head count if all the checked-in children in a given tag, room or status have been counted.


Where do I find a record of my head counts?

You can find records of your saved counts in 'Safeguarding', under the Head count tab. You can filter the view by when the head count was done, by room, and by tag.
