0-5 year olds – Well Child Programme

Well Child/Tamariki Ora is a free service that is offered to all New Zealand children from birth to 5 years. Well Child can support you to protect and improve your child’s health, so they can grow and develop to their full potential.

The programme offers screening, education and support.

After you join up:

  • your child can receive free wellness checks
  • you’ll get a free Well Child/Tamariki Ora My Health Book
  • The book has information on protecting and improving your child’s health and development.

The book reminds you about the things you can do with your baby or child to keep them healthy and safe.
Your child can have the B4 School Check, which ensures they’re well prepared for starting school. The B4 School Check includes free eyesight and hearing tests.
