The following features will be live for all services on the 3rd of December.

This includes Event ID, Event Start and End Dates and Event Description. You can find these details by going to ChildCare Subsidy > Service Registration Details.

If you click View details for any event, the number of Special Purpose Absences available to enrolled children will display.


Custom Enrolment Report

Playground App: Transport Lists

This feature is live on Playground App 2.11.0, available on the App and Play Store.

Educators can now record all of the regulatory requirements for transporting children on buses or any other mode of transport. Transport lists make it easy for educators to quickly record the pick-up time, drop-off time, headcounts and medication or health events that happen during transport. You can find all the information you need to know about transport lists here.

Key features:

  • Record pick-up and drop-off time of children

  • See any allergies or medical information about a child on a transport list

  • Educator sign-off on the lists

  • In-transit headcounts

  • Quickly add children to a list from their grade, class, school, room, or default transport list

  • Exportable reporting via email and Playground Web.


The following bug fixes are now live.

Playground App (Version 2.11.2)

  • We’ve fixed a bug causing children’s ages to show incorrectly on the child profile
  • We’ve fixed a bug causing rooms to be invisible in the Head Count feature.
