New Child accounts – manual creation (Teachers & Parents)

New ZooWhiz child accounts created by parents and teachers allow parents and teachers to nominate the child’s age as part of the creation process. Once created the Age Floor can be adjusted by following the instructions above.

New Child accounts – import from CSV file (Teachers)

Accounts created by the importation of a CSV file allow for a year of birth field. Once created the Age Floor can be adjusted by following the instructions above.

Existing accounts – child’s first sign in

If you have not first added the Age Floor settings for the child then the first time a child signs in after we release the Age Floor the child will be asked for their age as at that day. This age will be recorded in ZooWhiz but may be edited by the parent or teacher through their respective FREE Management Accounts. If a child attempts activities that are below their Age Floor they will encounter a message explaining why they cannot access these activities and encouraging them to ask their parent or teacher to vary it.
