How to get a free B4 School Check for your child

The B4 School Check is the final Well Child Tamariki Ora free health and development check for your 4-year-old.

During the check, a nurse will:

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

It’s a great opportunity to get an idea of your child’s health and talk to a nurse about anything that is worrying you.
