Before your child’s starting date, we will send you a link to join our KidsXap guardian portal, where you can fill out all of the required details prior to starting.

A staff member will also show you through the entire centre and introduce you to all staff and will explain our policies & procedures, whilst your child enjoys a play in their new environment.

We have an orientation process that allows you to stay & play at the centre, with your child prior to the actual starting date. This gives you and your child an opportunity to settle in, ask questions and become familiar with the environment.

Have you downloaded the KidsXap Guardian App???  

Parents and guardians live busy lives, and juggling work, home and a family. Ideally, we’d spend every moment with our kids, but that’s not possible. With KidsXap, however, you can be closer to them, even when you’re away. View real-time updates from your child care centre through the KidsXap online portal and get notifications on-the-go through the KidsXap mobile app. Stay up-to-date with your child’s learning developments and view photos of your child as they play and learn. Stay in touch with your child’s activities throughout the day, so you can share the moments in your child’s life, even from afar. Incident and illness reports of your child are automatically sent through to you after the staff member completes the incident report form. These need to be signed and sent back to us. You can simply sign by using your finger on your phone device.

Modern lives mean you can’t always be around your child, but with the KidsXap technology, keep your children close.  If you have not received a log in you can simply click on forgot password and enter your email address to set up a password.
