Administrators and teachers can add children to Hatch at any time of the year.
If you do not see some of the options below, your organization may be using automated rostering. Check to see whether the child exists on the View All Children page.
If you are new to Hatch and are adding the very first children to your organization, your setup experience will guide you to options for adding children.

- Select Choose File to upload a photo for the child.
- Select Add Photo to use the camera on your device to take the child's photo.
- You can request that family members/guardians add photos of children instead by checking the box Request photo from family member below Family Information.
