The Australian Government recommends Healthy Kids Checks, which aims to identify health problems and promote healthy lifestyles.
When to arrange a Preschool Health Check?
The recommended timing is before your 4-year-old child's scheduled vaccination. The examination enables your doctor to remain engaged with your child and offer health surveillance at an important transition in your child’s early life.
What is involved in a Preschool Health Check
As parents, we encourage this opportunity to discuss parenting or health concerns, but it also consists of a checklist of examinations and assessments, six of which are mandatory, including:
- Compliance with the recommended Vaccination Schedule
- Checks for vision, hearing and oral health
- Toilet practices and allergies
- Growth and developmental checks
