Kinderlime provides quick and easy ways for parents to sign their children in and out in order for your center to maintain accurate attendance records and charge families properly (if you have attendance-based charges). 

Special Note

Parents CAN NEVER sign in-out while logged into their own account, only from a tablet that has been logged into by a staff member or admin of your school.

How Does it Work?

Our Kinderlime app provides two options for parent sign in-out:

Option 1 (No pin required for parents) 

  • Click on logo at the bottom of the app to open the Parent Kiosk (see screenshot below).
  • On Parent Kiosk screen, parents will simply tap on their child profile pic and then choose themselves from List of Authorized Pickup screen
  • After choosing the correct pickup person, they will be able to record sign-in or sign-out of the child along with digital signature. Click here for details on how to enable/disable parent signatures
  • Parent Kiosk screen can also be locked to keep parents from being able to navigate away from the screen (the teacher or admin password is required to unlock this screen). Click here for details on how to enable/disable the password protection.

Option 2 (Pin-based)

Each parent or authorized pickup has a 4 digit pin which they will use to drop-off or pick-up their child. The pins are automatically assigned by the system when they are added either on web or mobile. 

  • Click on logo at the bottom of the app to open the Parent Kiosk (see screenshot below).
  • Click on the keypad icon in the upper righthand corner to access the Sign-In Kiosk screen (circled in red below).
  • Each parent can enter their pin to sign-in one or more of their children (how to link siblings). Parents or Authorized pickup will just need one pin to sign-in their children 
  • Once pin is entered and validated,  they will be able to do Sign-In or Sign-Out of their child in the next screen. 

Which option should I use?

You can use any of the above options depending on your needs. If you are new to Kinderlime, we recommend to get started with Option 1 (without pin). It will help you get started quickly without parent pins.

Once you have started using our system for sometime, you can move to option 2 which helps in doing sign in-out quickly and more securely.  You will always have both these options for Parent Kiosk.
