Integrated Review at Two
What happens at the two year check
At the age of two all children are invited to attend a health review. This is carried out by a health professional, normally the child’s health visitor or a community nursery nurse.
The review focuses on the progress of each child and offers the opportunity for discussion and help and support with any concerns.
If the child also attends a childminder, pre-school or day nursery, they will also have a discussion with parents regarding the child’s development in relation to areas of learning. This is called a progress check at two and is taken from the Early Years Foundation Stage which sets the standards for learning, development and care of children from birth to five years for all childcare providers.
The integrated review is the bringing together of information from these two reviews to ensure that a complete picture of a child’s development can be drawn and shared.
In some cases a meeting between all parties may be arranged to see how the child can be best supported in the future.
