Activities of the Child Welfare Clinic 

The health of the whole family is the main point of Child Welfare Clinic’s operations. Our aim is to monitor a child’s mental, physical and social development as well as to prevent and detect diseases at an early stage by the following means: 

  • Conducting regular health check-ups. 
  • Encouraging a healthy lifestyle – diet, sleep, exercise. 
  • Supporting parenting
  • Monitoring the child’s psychomotor development and speech development. 
  • Providing vaccinations in accordance with the national vaccination programme. 
  • Collaborating with, for example, daycare staff, psychologists, speech therapists, physiotherapy, occupational and nutrition therapists, as well as social workers and the Family Centre. 

The number of appointment visits with nurses and doctors varies according to the individual needs and wishes of the child and family. We also make home visits. In addition, we provide group activities in some locations, such as parent–child groups and support groups for parents. Contact your Child Welfare Clinic for more information on group activities. 

The public health nurse is ready to help you and your family. She also has a duty of confidentiality, so you can discuss all issues related to your child and family in confidence.
