Guidestar Attendance Service

Guidestar Attendance is an easy to use service for recording child care attendance that eliminates distribution, collection, collating, filing, and archiving of paper attendance records.

Child attendance: Teachers or other staff members record each child's arrival, arrival temperature (optional), and departure on a smart phone, tablet, ​or computer. Centers can enable parents to record each child's arrival or departure.

Staff attendance: Staff members record their own arrival and departure each day and their personal or sick leave.

Meal record: Centers that keep records of meals served to children for the Child and Adult Care Food Program or other purposes enable staff members to record all meals served to each child each day at point of service.

Automated date and time stamp: Date and time of arrival, departure, and meal record are automatically recorded, ensuring accurate records.

Administration:   Administrators control parent and teacher access, class names, children assigned to each class, and parent-child relationships. Administrators automatically create on-demand reports of daily, weekly, and monthly attendance; daily, weekly, and monthly time (hours) in class; daily arrival temperature; and daily, weekly, and monthly individual meals served to each child. Administrators have the option to create reports for any time period and for any or all classes.
