5 Years Old

Your little one isn't so little anymore!

Five-year-olds bring on a whole new world for both you and your child. Before school and sports begin, be sure to schedule your child's 5-year medical, dental and vision checkups. Through Crow Wing County's Child and Teen Checkups program, these appointments are FREE to anyone on Medical Assistance. Your 5-year-old's checkups will include:

  • A chance to ask your questions
  • Reliable information about healthy food, sleep, behavior and safety
  • A check on how your child is growing, learning, developing, and feeling
  • Height, weight and blood pressure
  • Head-to-toe exam
  • Immunizations, if needed
  • Lead Blood test (if never tested)
  • Help finding regular dental care
  • Fluoride varnish for healthy teeth
  • Hearing and vision checks
  • Support with family needs:
    • Food, housing, utilities
    • Money or job resources
    • Child care
    • Transportation
    • Help with safe relationships, mental health or substance use
