2 year review (at 27 months)

When your child turns two, you will be offered two development reviews: one by early years' education (if he/she attends a nursery or pre-school) and one by health.

This health review is usually done by a community nursery nurse when your child is around 27 months old. This review may take place within a group with other 27-month-olds and their parents/carers.

You will also receive two Ages and Stages Questionnaires in the post and will need to complete both the Ages and Stages Developmental (ASQ-3) and Social and Emotional (ASQ:SE-2) questionnaires no sooner than two weeks before your appointment to ensure it is a true reflection of child’s progress.  (The ASQ: SE-2 is titled 30 months but developed for children from 27 months).

The information you supply will help reveal your child’s strengths, and determine if there are any resources or services available that may be useful to support your child.

If you would like support to complete your child’s ASQ questionnaire, please contact our Surrey-wide 0-19 Advice Line. The advice line is available on 01883 340 922 from 8am to 5pm, Monday to Friday (excluding bank holidays) and provides support on all aspects of child health, development and parenting.

Health and development review

Please take a moment to view the two year page in your child’s Personal Child Health Record ’red book’ which highlights the many new skills they may be developing at this age.

The 27 month review is an opportunity to discuss your child’s progress including information on:

At two years old, your child will be due their flu vaccination which you will need to arrange with your GP surgery.

If you have any queries concerning your child’s progress, please contact us on our advice line or come along to one of our child health drop-ins where we would be happy to discuss any aspect of health and well-being for you and your family.

Early Years review

If your child is within an early years education setting this review will take place at your child's ofsted-registered childcare (nursery school or child minder) and is called the two-year progress check.

The results of the education progress check should be kept in your child's personal child heath record 'Red book' and will be reviewed by the health professional during your child’s 27-month health development review.
