Our skilled community Nursery Nurses work alongside the Health Visitors to provide the healthy child programme to the local community.

This involves visiting children at home to review their health and development and support parents with aspects of parenting including advice about sleep, nutrition and behaviour management.

Our Nursery Nurses also carry out development reviews for children aged:

  • 3 - 4 Months
  • 9 – 12 Months
  • 2 – 2.5 Years

You and your child may be invited to a clinic setting for the development assessment.

Our experienced Nursery Nurses have the skills to assess children's development and for referring to other professionals when necessary.

Their role also involves advising on home safety, accident prevention, and safe play, and supports parents/carers with issues around weaning, and breastfeeding. A lot of this information is provided at the group 3-4 month contact.

They can also provide information and advice on topics such as toilet training, immunisation, diet and stopping smoking. If you would like to speak to one of our nursery nurses, they are often available at the Child Health Clinics which run at your local East Riding of Yorkshire Children’s Centre.
