    Public Health Nursing - B4 School Check

    The B4 School Check is the 12th Well Child /Tamariki Ora health check and is free for all 4 year olds.
    There are two parts to the check:

    The Vision & Hearing Screen is normally done at your child’s preschool by a visiting vision and hearing technician. You will be required to complete a consent form prior to this. If your child doesn’t attend a preschool or has not had their vision/hearing screened, we can arrange this with you in one of our clinics.

    The Health Check is done by one of our trained registered nurses and takes about 30-45 minutes to complete. This involves discussing your child’s general health and development, growth, oral health, immunisation history and useful health promotion resources and parenting tips. If you have any concerns, additional support and referral options are available. Ideally the check is done soon after your child turns 4 years of age and is available up until their 5th birthday.

    The B4School check is provided by the Public Health Nursing Service in Otago and the Well Child Service in Southland. If you are interested please call us - we would love to hear from you!
