Abstract: The physical growth of the child goes through an important phase during the first six years of life. During these years the foundation for further optimal growth is laid. One of the ways in which the physical growth of the child can be measured is through weight and height measurements. It should be recognized that weight and height are not the only indices of physical growth; nevertheless, these measurements give an indication of the direction in which a child's growth is progressing. These measurements also form a basis for the further examination of the physical status of the child.
