KidCheck Introduces Admin Console App
The KidCheck Admin Console that you know and love is now available via a mobile app, putting all the important data at your fingertips, making it faster and easier to use.
With the new KidCheck Admin Console app, there’s no need to use a check-in station or web browser to handle important tasks. Having all the information readily accessible frees you up to focus on the more important duties of the day, which are connecting with families, and serving their kids.
By using the new KidCheck Admin Console app you’ll not only see a reduction in your workload, but also increased classroom efficiency, stronger child security, and quicker parent and/or guardian communication. For more details on these benefits see the items below.
- Easy and Efficient Classroom Use – By using your mobile device in the classroom, you can quickly access important information such as seeing which children are checked in, see if there’s a birthday or medical/allergy icon for any kids, issue child pick-up alerts, move child or volunteer/worker locations and process check-out. Volunteers/workers can be checked out in the app too.
- Stronger Child Security – For emergencies, evacuations or fire drills having direct access to a list of children checked-in enables you to respond faster to any incidents. With the ability to update attendance in real time you have a ‘live roster’ of who is checked in. You will also be able to see at-a-glance authorized and unauthorized guardians, this ensures safe check-outs.
- Faster Parent Communication – Quickly and easily text or call parents (or volunteers/staff) right from your mobile device through the app. This is an important feature if you need clarifying information on a child or direct access to the parent in case of an emergency.
As you can see, the benefits of using the KidCheck Admin Console app are huge! With the rise in the demand for mobility coupled with the importance of child security, the Admin Console app offers a solution that’s easy to implement, provides strong security features, and delivers additional flexibility.
Data available in the Admin Console app remains highly secure with only KidCheck Administrator, Start/Stop, and Campus Manager roles having access.
KidCheck’s Admin Console app is available to download from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store for free. We’ll continue to make additions and improvements to the app.

A few folks tried it out today, on the fly, no training. Initial feedback was that it was easy to use and fairly intuitive. My initial thought was perhaps there needs to be a new role introduced rather than having to make the capability only open to full administrators. Otherwise… definitely a very useful and needed tool. Thanks!

Appreciate you taking the time to let us know how the Admin Console App worked. Glad to hear the tool is useful, and easy-to-use. We’ll also take a look at administrator roles and access for the app. Good suggestion, feedback always helpful! Thank you.

I love the app.
A “sort” feature would be wonderful.
Wit our setup we have parents for all children coming at the same time.
It would be nice to be able to sort by number for ease of finding the children quickly instead of just searching through a list of dozens of names

Thanks for the comment Jeff and glad you find the app useful! There is a sort feature in the admin console app you may find helpful. The checked in children are sorted by last name, and you can then sort/filter further by specific template or location. To sort click the gear icon, then the filter icon (which looks like an oil filter). If that doesn’t address your need please give us a call, we are happy to help and discuss in more detail.

Can you sort by the number they are assigned at check in? Since the guardian receipt doesn’t show a name, we match to the child with their number.

Hello! Yes, the Admin Console mobile app lets you search/filter by the security code, so you can easily find the child associated with a given number.

Do you have to have full access as a Administrator to check a child out?
Can a volunteer/approved worker that is NOT a Admin check a child out using the Admin Console App or can only approved Admin used this app?

Thanks for asking Crystal. Administrators (including campus manager, coordinator and check in worker) can check a child out using the Admin Console App. A volunteer cannot. This is to continue to ensure the utmost security of the children. Let us know if you have additional questions. Thank you again for choosing KidCheck for your secure children’s check-in.
