Playground Web: Children



The Children Tab in Playground Web provides information about the children at your centre, at a glance. 

To access this information, log into Playground Web on a desktop and use the left hand menu to find 'Children'


Children Tab

Clicking on this tab will give you an overview of the active children at your service, in alphabetical order.

The overview provides the child's age, whether they have photo permission, and the number of observations created for them in the current month (indicated by the number next to the camera icon on the right-hand side of the screen).



Individual Child Information

Clicking on a specific child from the overview, you will be able to see all the observations, canvas, tables and documents they have been tagged in, their health information, an analysis of their learning outcomes and profile information.

Click on the headers at the top of their profile to switch between these tabs. 

Note: Edits or additions to Children profiles can only be made in Office, please view our guides here for further assistance.




I want to view an inactive child's profile on Playground Web, but they are not populating in the Children tab?

You will only be able to view active children in the system. To view an inactive child - you will need to:

  1. Log into Office
  2. Navigate to the Profile>Children Tab
  3. Locate the child and enter their profile
  4. Move their status to active without changing their end date
  5. Press save
  6. Wait 15minutes
  7. Log into Playground Web
  8. Navigate to the Children's tab
  9. Locate the child (alphabetised by first name) and press on their name
  10. Collect the data you require
  11. Done

The child's profile will stay active in the system until the midnight of that same day and then will move back to an inactive status in the Office system, therefor hiding them from your Playground Web profile again.
