It is important that parents of children added to Storypark feel in control over who has access to their child’s stories and information. It is for this reason that when a teacher adds a child to Storypark our system only allows them to invite one family member (usually a parent) to a child’s profile. It is then that family member’s choice as to who else can be invited, or who else be made an Admin (family Admins can invite other people). The other parent is usually the first person they invite.

These are the people who can invite people to a child’s profile:
- a teacher who adds a child to Storypark can invite one family member of that child (usually this will be a parent).
- a teacher who has admin rights (the teacher or manager who first signed up, or has been granted admin rights by another teacher Admin) can invite additional teachers.
- 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 adds their child 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, teachers 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.
