Xplor F.A.Q


How do I set up Xplor?

Once the centre has finalised your enrolment and made your child ‘active’, you will receive a Welcome email from Xplor.

Click the orange ‘Create Account’ button. As a new parent who has not created an account before, select ‘Create Account.’ From here, create a password that is 8 characters in length and includes a capital letter, number and special character. 

Create a 4 digit Account Pin. This can be used to sign in with your mobile number which you will enter in the next step.

Enter your mobile number.

Press ‘Finished.’

That’s it! You have created your Xplor Account! You can now use the email address and password listed to log into the Home App.

Once you select ‘Finished’ you will automatically be taken to your Home Account. 

My invitation to create my profile has expired. How do I get another invite?

Invitations to set up your account will be sent to parents via email. These invitations will expire after 7 days of being sent. This is to ensure that your account is protected. 

If your invitation has expired before you have created your account, please ask the admin team at your child care service to send you another.

Parents can reset their password themselves by going to the login page of the Home app or via home.myxplor.com. Hit “Forgot password?” to receive a reset password email. This reset password email will expire after 2 hours.
