It is important that parents of children added to Storypark feel in control over who has access to their child’s stories and information. For this reason, when an educator adds a child to Storypark our system only allows them to invite two family members (usually parents) to a child’s profile. Those family members can then choose who else they wish to invite, and who they give Admin rights to (family Admins can invite other people).

These are the people who can invite people to a child’s profile:
an educator who adds a child to Storypark can invite two family members or guardians of that child (usually this will be a parent).
a family member (usually a parent) invited by the teacher who added their child to Storypark can invite anyone they trust (this will usually be other family members, but may include teaching specialists).
a parent who signs up and creates their child's profile can invite anyone they trust (this will usually be other family members, but may include teaching specialists).
a family member or specialist who has been made an Admin by another family Admin can invite anyone they trust (this will usually be other family members, but may include teaching specialists).
a family admin can invite an early learning service. Once the early learning service accepts, all its teachers can view the child’s profile.
This article explains how parents can invite their family members.
In rare circumstances where parents aren't on good terms or don't have contact with each other, educators may create a duplicate profile for the child (so that child then has two profiles). They may be called, for example, ‘Child’s name Mum’ and ‘Child’s name Dad’. They can then invite each parent to their corresponding profile. When stories are created for the child they simply add both instances of that child to the story.
