The B4 School Check is a free comprehensive health and development check for all four-year-old children. It aims to promote health and wellbeing and identify behavioural, developmental or other health concerns that may affect your child’s ability to learn at school. Our aim is for tamariki to get the best start at school and to be able to participate to the best of their ability and receive additional support if needed.

The B4 School Check is carried out by a Registered Nurse. It takes about 45 minutes and covers the following:

• General questions about your child’s health and development
• Assessment of social and emotional strengths and difficulties
• Measurement of Height and Weight
• Vision and Hearing tests
• Oral Health assessment
• Review of Immunisation status.

It is ideal to have your child checked when they turn four so any additional support can be arranged before your child starts school.
