And there's more

In Case of an Emergency…

Users have rated this as one of the most innovative functions seen in daycare applications.


Emergency response teams (fire fighters, paramedics, police) rely heavily on the information you provide whether it is a member profile or a roster of members attending the facility that day. The roster of attendees is crucial and will be used to locate missing individuals.

The expectation is that ALL sign in sheets throughout the facility be carried out to aid emergency responders, but what would you focus on - children or a piece of paper?

CheckIn Zone provides an "all in one" solution.

Under the Emergency tab you will find a list of members along with a headcount in the facility.
Green: The member was present at the time of the event, White: The member was not in attendance that day, Gray: The member has left for the day.

One click on any member will pull up the members profile (e.g critical phone numbers, optional medical information, allergies etc.) to aid emergency responders.

So what happens if the tablet is lost or damaged?

All the information is cloud based and can be accessed from ANY computer using your user name and password.


Most government agencies require a legal signature when dealing with children in care. These signatures are used to verify who signed in and the time in which they arrived and departed from care and those agencies may require to view and verify the signature on file.

Finding that signature from a year ago can be time consuming and frustrating but with our on board reporting system, you can sort and locate members in minutes using all or some of these parameters - member name, group association and date or date range.

At CheckIn Zone your electronic signature sheets are stored and archived so you can locate a signature with ease.



Now you can print your report to a wireless printer or save and email it to the recipient of your choice.



Getting started

Here is how it works:

First you will need to set up a name for your business as well as a password. Passwords are case sensitive. A combination of letters, numbers and symbols will create the strongest password.

You may also want to add your logo or a picture of your business. Don't forget to SAVE.

This option may also be found under the "update account" tab in the admin section.

Step 2

Now add the members (children, teachers, drivers, etc...)

Name: members name

Emergency information: we recommend some important details such as parental name and numbers; Physician, special needs (allergies, medication) and/or specific instructions (who may NOT pick up the child etc.).

Alert: this button can be turned on or off. Turning it on will create a marker next to the members picture. This indicator will help identify individuals with special needs or with specific instructions.

Picture: You may choose to use your on board camera to capture the members picture or you may use a picture that has been sent to you.


add new group

Step 3

Create different groups to speed up the member search. Examples would be a room number, teacher name, staff member or bus route. A picture may be added with your on board camera or from a file.

Now that you have completed setting up your groups, return to the "Administration" section, click on an existing member to access their profile. Use the drop down menu under "Group" to select the group the member will be associated with. Don't forget to SAVE... You are now ready to receive members to your facility!
