Well Child Tamariki Ora provide well child and whānau health support services through home and clinic visits. We use a kaupapa Māori approach to offer you and your whānau support and information to maximise your child’s developmental potential, and health.
Rotorua tamariki up to 5 years of age.
We come to your home or you can come to our clinic in Ohinemutu. Visits can also take place at preschools, marae and other community facilities that suit you.
Our Team of Registered Nurses have had additional training in supporting parents/caregivers and whānau to care for their pēpi and tamariki (preschool children). They will complete developmental assessments of your tamariki at varying stages between birth and 5 years as per the Nation Well Child Tamariki Ora Schedule. Our Nurses are also supported by a team of Kaitiaki who can provide extra care as required to help you get the most out of the service, and the best start for your tamariki. Each visit gives you the opportunity to discuss parenting, family issues, your child’s health and development (e.g. nutrition, breastfeeding, sleep, safety, behaviour, growth, hearing and vision).
These visits take place when your child is a certain age. This is when you can expect to see us:
The B4 School Check is the last Well Child check that is done between 4-4.5 years of age. It is designed to help them get the best possible start at school. For more information about these checks click on the link below.
When your child sees their Nurse or Kaitiaki, they will need to record the health and development information for your tamariki in their Health Book. You can read this book online by clicking on the link below.
Our team can refer and support you to connect with other services to meet your tamariki and whānau needs, this may include:
