5 year old walking on toes

My daughter is in the habit of walking around on her toes. Teachers have noticed this, and have suggested we have her checked out to ensure there are no developmental problems. I have read about idiopathic toe walking and wanted to know if at 5 this could be a serious problem.

Sorry for the delay in responding I was O`seas
It can become problematic later on and it may also be a sign of other things
Please take her to a paediatric orthopedic surgeon
