Fit 4 School
Children need to be in good health to transition well into primary school
In NSW children can start Kindergarten in first term if they turn 5 by July 31st of that year. By law all children must be enrolled in school by their 6th birthday. Kindergarten enrolment begins around April the year before your child will start Kindergarten.
In order for your child to transition well into primary school, they need to be in good health. This checklist will help you as parents/carers consider a range of health and wellbeing issues and, if necessary, get help to maximise your child’s potential.
Healthy Kid’s Check
GPs offer a free Health Kids Check which is an assessment of a child’s physical health, general well-being and development, with the purpose of addressing any problems found. The Healthy Kids Check could be done by your doctor or a clinic nurse.
