KidKiosk

The State Of Washington has mandated that licensed childcare providers track attendance electronically. Our YMCA's school-age child care, preschool, and camp sites are now using KidKiosk to keep attendance for electronic sign-in/out. With KidKiosk, you will be able to sign your child in/out of the YMCA program. You will also be able to add/remove drop-off and pick-up authorizations through KidKiosk.

KidKiosk PIN

All authorized individuals will be issued a 4-digit PIN. This PIN is specifically linked to each person’s email. ALL authorized persons dropping off AND picking up will be responsible for using their own PIN and electronic signature to check a child IN and OUT. This PIN may not be shared.

KidKiosk Parent Portal

  • Only the primary parent/guardian’s email is authorized to log into KidKiosk’s Parent Portal using their email as the username and the 4-digit PIN as the password. To access the Parent Portal, go to KidKiosk.com then select the “Parent Tab” to log in.
  • The Parent Portal allows the parent to add/change check in and out authorizations. Any additional people that are needing to be authorized to check in/out a child will have to be added by the primary parent/guardian in KidKiosk.

Parent/Guardian Roles

What does it mean to be the primary parent/guardian?

  • The primary parent/guardian will have access to WebTime and KidKiosk. Only the primary parent/guardian’s email will be used to log into and access these programs.
  • The primary and secondary parent/guardian will receive notification emails when another authorized person checks a child in and out.
  • If parents are co-parenting, we recommend using a primary email that both parents have access to. Please keep in mind that the secondary parent/guardian must have their own email to receive their own personalized PIN.

What does it mean to be the secondary parent/guardian?

  • The secondary parent/guardian will be able to access WebTime BUT ONLY if the primary parent share’s their account log in information.
