Congratulations on choosing a childcare centre that uses KidsXap, our innovative technology that allows you to see what your child is doing at the centre every day, and also allows you to communicate with the centre through the KidsXap platform.

We get how busy it is for parents, so KidsXap will let you have a check in on your kids when you have a free moment. You’ll know what they’ve eaten, whether they’ve slept, when their nappies have been changed, and you’ll even see photos.

And you’ll be able to comment and chat with the centre’s staff is much the same way you do on other social media platforms, only it will be private, and all within KidsXap’s secure platform.

The video above walks you through how to install the KidsXap guardian app on your phone and take you through the home screen dashboard.

If you’ve downloaded apps before, downloading KidsXap guardian will feel familiar. If you’re on an iPhone, go to the Apple App Store, or if you’re on an Android device, go to the Google Play store.

Type in KidsXap and KidsXap Guardian will appear. Click to install it on your phone. Once it has downloaded, you will be asked for a username and password. You will have been sent an email from your childcare centre with this information. Check your junk box if you can’t find it, or you can request another email from your centre.

Once you have entered the information, click Sign In and you’ll be asked to create a 4-digit passcode. Once you’ve done this, you come to the KidsXap home screen.

Inside KidsXap you have a whole range of features that allows you to view and interact with all aspects of your child’s day-to-day activities, including attendance, schedules, enrolments, and incidence records – the administrative side of child care, but also events, notes to and from your centre, activities and learning observations, so you’ll be able to see what your child is doing from day-to-day, and week-to-week.

We’ll look at the features one at a time in future videos. The first on the admin functions of KidsXap, such as attendance, schedules, and enrolments, and the second on the interactive functions of KidsXap such as notes, activities, events, and observations.

So welcome to the world of KidsXap, the software that brings your childcare centre to you through your phone or laptop.
