Integrated reviews - the 2 year check
Assessing the development of two year olds in Staffordshire
We are committed to ensuring every child has the best start in life. We know that a child’s brain is 80% developed by the age of three. The first 1001 days are crucial for a child’s development.
We are now working closely with childcare providers and the Health and Wellbeing Service (0-19) to roll out an integrated check for two year olds. This will involve pulling together both ‘professional’ assessments to ensure parents have a holistic and comprehensive record of their child’s health and development before their third birthday.
This review should give parents the information they need to support their child to be ready for school. It should also make sure that any children who may need a little extra support and help get it early.
