Before School Checks

The final Well Child/Tamariki Ora health checks are at 4 years old before your child goes to school and includes a free hearing and eyesight test.

The nurse will:

  • Check your child’s height and weight
  • Check your child’s teeth
  • Ask if your child has been immunised
  • Ask you questions about your child’s learning and development and strengths and difficulties
  • Ask you questions about your child’s health and wellbeing
  • Provide you advice and support about your child’s health and development
