With Famly since

Since the first iteration of the Famly app's home page seven years ago, Famly’s early childhood platform has changed a lot. Famly can do more, so Early Years educators and leaders have to use it even less. And less time looking at a screen means more time for what really matters - the children at the heart of it all.

So now, we’ve taken things one step further, with the introduction of a new, customisable home screen in Famly.

We call it Famly Home.

Famly Home saves you even more time by giving you the most important things, front and centre, like medication forms, special events, and room ratios. 

What has actually changed?

I met with Delia, Famly’s Senior Product Designer to find out more about Famly Home. You can watch my chat with her below, and take a first look at the changes.

Whoops! Looks like you need to accept marketing cookies to see this video. Don’t worry - they’re fresh out the oven.

The fine details

Where the ratio graph used to be, we now have the same information but presented in a more easily readable way. You can quickly check staffing, attendance, and ratios for each room.

The sidebar on the top, right-hand side of the Famly Home screen shows you the tasks that need your attention most urgently. You simply click on it, taking you directly to the right place in Famly, straight from the list. Below that, you'll have a list of events such as birthdays, or special events happening at your setting.

Medication forms are now front and centre so you can immediately see who needs what, and when. And, If a medication is delayed, the task will be labelled “Needs your attention.” 

You’ll also have a direct link to the latest updates from the Famly Blog, right there in the app.

What's more, you can create unique customisation screens when accessing the Overview.  Each individual user can choose which widgets they want to show up in their personal Famly Home screen.  As long as they have the right permissions, of course.

How can I see it in action?

The best way to experience Famly Home is by using it, after all, the more you use it, the richer information you get. 

But to get you started, and to see how else Famly can help you, you can join one of our informal twenty-minute teaser sessions here.

Famly home will be available to all Famly users on Monday November 21st, 2022.

Please note: here at Famly we love sharing creative activities for you to try with the children at your setting, but you know them best. Take the time to consider adaptions you might need to make so these activities are accessible and developmentally appropriate for the children you work with. Just as you ordinarily would, conduct risk assessments for your children and your setting before undertaking new activities, and ensure you and your staff are following your own health and safety guidelines.
