2 Year Review

Your child’s 2 year check may be at your home or in a community setting, like the local children’s centre. For this contact we will send out an Ages and Stages Questionnaire for you to complete with your child and  in this you can write any concerns you might have.

During this appointment you can get advice on toileting,  your child’s diet and sleep.  Your child might be entitled to two year funding and so we can advise you about this. You can discuss if you’re thinking about a nursery for you child and discuss ways to help you child to transition. If you’re child is in a nursery they will get your consent to share their information with us and this will be added to your child’s records.

You can get your child weighed and measured. Now you child is over 2 the way we measure changes and you child will get measured standing from now on. We will ask about your child’s hearing and vision and if you have any worries.

If your child’s immunisations are up to date, they wont be due  any further immunisations  until they are 3 years 4 months.

If your child is not yet registered with a dentist we recommend you get them in with a free NHS dentist.
