Set up your child's account

  1. You have two options: 

    • If your child has an account from school, click 'my child already has a login'
    • If you are creating a new account, click 'create a login for my child'

      add a child to your family (parents)
  2. You'll then be asked to enter your child's details. If you're creating a new login, enter their name and date of birth. If they already have an account, enter their login details and date of birth. Click 'create login' (if creating a new account) or 'connect login' (if linking an existing account)

    create child login

  3. If you have additional children to add, click 'add another child'. Otherwise, click 'finish setup' to confirm your family account details. Please note you can still add an additional child later!
