Dear DS London parents,
Welcome to the DS London parent app. To help you familiarise yourself with the app quickly and easily, you will find an overview and explanation of all functions here in the help centre. However, should you have any problems using the app, please do not hesitate to contact the management of the school. We hope you enjoy using the app.
Your DS London Team

In the function, you can register that your child/children will be away from the daycare for a certain period of time.
The Vacation Times feature allows parents to indicate whether the parent’s child/children are on vacation during the facility’s vacation times or if they are still attending kindergarten.
You can find other parents’ contact information under the contacts function. In addition, it is possible to give permission to share your own contact information to other parents.
Standard permissions can be found under index card. If the institution has its own location specific permissions, these must be filled out via the function “Permissions”.
|Give permission if the child is allowed to do so, and confirm by pressing the checkmark in the upper right corner.|
With this function you are able to manage your contact information.
Here you can update your contact information. If you make changes, remember to confirm by tapping “done” in the upper right hand corner.
