What is the difference between Guardian Accounts and Login Accounts?
Parents/guardians need a KidCheck account to securely check their children into your facility. There are two types of KidCheck accounts:
A KidCheck Login Account
This an account created online via go.kidcheck.com or via the mobile app; it includes a username and password. It allows parents to actively manage their account information including photos, children information, allergy or medical info, authorized/unauthorized guardians, and their preferences (e.g. text messaging capabilities). Once they have created a login account, they have the ability to securely access, manage and change their information at any time from any computer, smart phone, or tablet. KidCheck recommends parents/guardians create a login account prior to checking children in for the first time. This will ensure a quick and easy first check-in by simply requiring their 10 digit phone number at the check-in station.
A KidCheck Guardian Account
This is an account created from a check-in station that does not have a username and password. When a parent/guardian creates their account at a check-in station the first time they check in, it will ask basic information about the children (name, birth date, sex, allergies) but will not allow upload of photos or guardian management. KidCheck will automatically send an email to them requesting that they complete their account from home to provide the benefits of a full login account (with a username and password).
Note: For someone to be added as an Admin to an organization account, they must have a login account.
