EveryParent Frequently Asked Questions
Why is Children's Services Council requesting personal information about my family, such as my child’s date of birth?
To ensure our EveryParent website and apps are as relevant and timely as possible, we've asked for families to put in their child's date of birth. This way we can offer information that's personalized, so parents see and read about what's going on in their child's specific stage of life. This also gives us the ability to alert parents (through push notifications) to upcoming milestones, important dates and appropriate local resources.
(For example, if a child is 3 ½ years old, we can alert parents to sign up for free Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten for all 4 year olds. If a child is 14 ½, we can alert parents to the learner’s permit and driver’s license process.)
Also, through the app, parents can upload their own photos and videos, and share them to their own social media accounts if they'd like. We will never sell any of your personal information.
Where can I find EveryParent’s information related to privacy?
How is Children's Services Council storing my data and keeping it secure?
Our vendors, who are experts in the field, have ensured that any personal data (photos, videos, birth dates, etc.) is uploaded and downloaded securely. We’ve also included the use of standard security protocols provided by Apple and Google, for any data stored locally on an individual’s device.
What is Children's Services Council (CSC), anyway?
We are a countywide special district that receives funding from property taxes. We were established by county voters in 1986 and reauthorized in 2014. We provide programs and services specifically to Palm Beach County (FL) children and their families. Currently, we fund more than 50 different programs in the community.
You can find out more about CSC and the EveryParent campaign on the website, through the About section (or by clicking here). In the apps, users can link to CSC’s main site from the menu.
Are the website/apps available in other languages?
The website is currently available for translation in Spanish and Haitian-Creole through Google Translate. We are working on providing translations for the EveryParent app in the near future.
Am I able to save favorite articles and share them to my social media sites?
In the app, you can save articles and share them to your social media accounts. We’re working on making this feature available for the website, as well.
Who do I contact if I have a problem, or an idea for content?
