Healthy Kid's Check
What is it?
The aim of the Health Check is to ensure every child in Australia has a basic health check to see if they are healthy, fit and ready to learn when they start school.
We provide this valuable check for children aged 4,5,6,or 7 years of age generally before they starts school, however this check can be perfomed at any stage.
The Healthy Kids Check will:
- Promote early detection of lifestyle risk factors
- Delayed development and illness, and
- Introduce guidance for healthy lifestyles and early intervention strategies
The Health Check includes information collection of family and environmental factors, medical and social history, and lifestysle risk factors.
Where appropriate, arrangements will be put into place for referrals and follow-ups of any problems identified
