Keeping up to date information about children readily to hand in your tiney home nursery is an important part of keeping them safe. The tiney Child Passport in the app gives you essential information about individual children in your care. It's a record of their emergency contacts, medical needs, allergies, dietary requirements and more.

New families are invited to complete their Child's Passport as part of their onboarding journey. Once families download the tiney app, (which we'll invite them to do shortly after you've submitted a contract request for their placement), they'll be prompted to complete their Child Passport alongside other tasks like signing their contract with you and making their first monthly payment in advance.

Each child has their own Child Passport and, once the child is fully enrolled, their information will be surfaced in your app. You must ensure you can see this before the child is left alone in your care - for example before the child's placement starts.

Remember, we will look at the passports for children in your care as part of your annual Quality Assurance visit. If you do not keep it up to date or have information that is missing this could impact the safety of children in your care. Because of this it could impact the grading you might receive from your visit. Parents can also update information in the passport at any time so it is important you check this regularly and chase parents for any missing information.

It is your responsibility to ensure your families keep their Child Passports up to date. We recommend you remind families to update their Child Passport a couple of times every year. If a family gives you a verbal update about a change in information, ask them to update their Child's Passport too.
