Class Management (Classes and Groups under the "Children" tab) is how Site Admins can manage Classes and Groups. [Learn about setting up Groups here]
A Class is how the children are primarily grouped. Children can only belong to one class but they can belong to an unlimited number of groups. If you have multiple classes at your site, create one class as the primary class, and then create "Groups" for the other class groupings.
Groups can also be used to group children by days of attendance, special interests, additional learning needs or for managing transitions. A child can be added to multiple groups. Learn more about Groups here.
Create a New Class or Group
Site Administrators can access the Classes and Groups page, selecting either the Classes or Groups tab.
You can add a Class once on the Classes tab or a Group when on the Groups tab.
You'll need to select a name, assign teachers and add children to the class or group. Once you have added the information for the class or group simply click Save.
Adding Children to a Class or Group
You can add children to new or existing classes or Groups.
You'll be able to filter out the children to see those not assigned to a class and those in another class. Check the profiles of those children you wish to add to the class, click Assign and then hit Save.
Update the Details of an Existing Class
You can change the details of a class at any time by selecting the class. Here you'll be able to change the name of the class, assign teachers to the class, remove teachers from the class and make changes to the linked children. Just remember to hit Save once you've made the required changes.
You can also change the order the classes appear on the All Children page. To reorder the classes, just click on the class and drag it into the correct order in the menu of the left hand side of the page.
Archive an Entire Class
At the end of the year it is likely that you'll need to archive a number of child profiles as these children leave your service. Often these children will be in a single class. In these cases you can use the Archive All option, rather than doing this individually through their profile.
