Healthy Kids Check

 Healthy Kids Checks are available for every young child in Tasmania.

The free and comprehensive Healthy Kids Check includes improved vision and hearing tests with audiometry technology suited to the younger age group.

Healthy Kids Checks are available at your local Child Health and Parenting Service Child Health Centre, and most Child and Family Centres.

To find out more contact CHaPS on: 1300 064 544

The previous system of vision and hearing screening conducted in Prep year has been superseded by the stronger Healthy Kids Check at four years of age.

By making a full assessment at this age your Child Health Nurse can identify and address health issues before children start school.

That means our children are in the best possible health to learn when they get to school.

If you have any questions about Healthy Kids Checks, or would like to make an appointment for your child, contact CHaPS on the phone numbers above, or contact your local Child Health Centre
