Free child development checks

Playgroup ready set progress

Ready, Set, Progress

The Office for the Early Years is partnering with Playgroup SA to offer a new way to help parents/caregivers access child development checks. The aim is to increase development screening for children between 12 months and 5 years of age.

What is a child development check? A child development check looks at a child's key developmental milestones, such as communication, social-emotional, physical and problem-solving skills. A questionnaire is used to gain the unique understanding a parent/caregiver has about their child. The check is completed together with a Playgroup SA professional (usually an allied health professional, educator or social worker).

NB a development check is separate from a health check, which needs to be conducted by a medical professional such as a doctor or nurse, including Child and Family Health Services (CaFHS).
