The Tamariki Ora Well Child service is provided free to whānau and tamariki from birth to five years of age. All Well Child checks are provided in the client home and timed so that key developmental milestones for age and stage are monitored.

Together with whānau, we kōrero about how pēpi is growing and developing, how the whānau are enjoying the journey of parenthood and work through any pātai or concerns.

Topics we cover include, but are not limited to:

  • Feeding
  • Sleeping
  • Dental care
  • Behaviour
  • Immunisation
  • Auahi kore – smoke free
  • Living environment
  • Home safety / family violence
  • Community links
  • Networking

Kelly's kōrero

“What an amazing place, making a positive difference in people’s lives. I went to a breastfeeding course and also see our Tamariki Ora nurse through there.”

Hine's kōrero

“I went to Whānau Mai, then made a wahakura at Te Puawaitanga's wānanga, and now my nurse is from Tamariki Ora. All of these services for me and my pēpi were te Ao Māori.”
