Instructions for Measuring your Child’s Height

Use the tape measure and form we send you to measure and record the height. Have child remove his/her shoes. Have this child back up to a wall with the back of the head, shoulder blades, buttocks, and heels touching the wall. Lay a hard-backed book or other flat item on top of this child’s head, against the wall, and level with the floor. Mark the wall under the book and then use the tape measure to measure from the floor to the mark. Please tell us the height to the nearest quarter inch.
