As a licensed and accredited school, we are required by state licensing to have up-to-date medical information for all students at all times. Your child's updated Immunization Record and Child Health Report must be submitted to our school after each checkup/well-child visit. The Child Health Report needs to be signed by your child's Pediatrician.
It's important for your child to have regularly scheduled checkups, often called well-child visits, beginning shortly after birth and lasting through the teen years. These appointments allow your doctor to keep a close eye on your child's general health and development. Well-child visits are also a good time for parents to raise questions and concerns about a child's development, behavior, nutrition, safety, and overall well-being. A well-child visit typically includes a physical exam and necessary immunizations, providing parents with information to prepare them for the development status of the child. The schedule for well-child visits is as follows: 3-5 days after birth, 1 month after birth, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months, 1 year, 15 months, 18 months, 2 years, and once every year afterward. From birth onward, regular checkups with your pediatrician help to protect and enhance your children’s health.
