Introduction to the parents app

In the following every navigation item of the kihz app for parents is described. Please note that depending on the model of the device, the displays differ from each other.

While on the iPhone the short menu is always displayed at the bottom, on the Android it has to be called up.

Feed
Display chronologically all received messages, contributions and requests or pictures etc. In the protocol, you can see how much your child ate, when your child got diapers changed and when and for how long your child slept.

Calendar
Via the calendar you can apply certain filters to limit the elements displayed in the news feed. Display planned activities, trips and projects for a day, week or month.

Check-in & out
You may check-in your child at the daycare as soon as you are within the IP range of the daycare centre. So you avoid the queue in front of the check-in monitor at the daycare centre. You can also authorize another person to pick up your child and change the pickup time.

Vacation
Register when you are on holiday.

Illness
Register your child as sick, extend the expected duration or end the absence notification when your child is fine again.

Menu
Go to the full menu.

Messaging
For personal communication with the team of your child's group.

Check-in message
Read or write check-in messages. These are not private, as the Check-in Monitor does not require a password.

Posts
Read messages from the daycare team.

Gallery
Look at pictures of your child.

Playdates
Arrange a playdate with another family without sharing contact details.

Contacts
Communicate with parents who have agreed to share their contact details. You can also share your own contact details here.

Holiday periods
Information about public holidays and when the daycare centre is closed.

Permissions
Give or withhold your authorization. For example, is your child allowed put make-up today? Is your child allowed to go to the zoo tomorrow?

Indexcard
Adjust your personal information (for ex. change the address of the child's doctor). You may report allergies and dining habits (for ex. vegetarian). Give general permission or prohibitions.

Log out
