Kids’ Health Checklist


Many changes in growth and development occur during childhood. This checklist can help busy parents stay on top of medical visits to prevent illness.

The Importance of In-Person Pediatric Examinations

Pediatric care allows medical doctors to perform physical examinations as well as administer immunizations* to your child. It allows the doctor to track and record your child’s physical and developmental milestones, as well as identify any physical problems.


A health screening for toddlers 1-3 years of age will include physical checks like weight,  hearing and blood pressure, as well as a range of immunizations including those for chickenpox, hepatitis A and MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella). Other tests may be administered to monitor physical and other development.

Preschool and Elementary School Children

Adherence to well-child visit schedules ensure that children are at expected levels of physical activity and are reaching developmental milestones. Their nutritional, behavioral and emotional health are also measured and recorded, and a wider range of immunizations administered.

Middle and High School Adolescents

The monitoring of physical activity and nutritional health continues with well-child checkups for middle and high school children. Further immunizations are administered and reproductive health is monitored. Information regarding injury and substance abuse prevention may also be provided.

The right pediatric care can help to ensure the lifelong health of your child. Our annual wellness exam checklist can help give you a good overview of what to expect.
