  • Early Childhood Screening–May 2021

    Early Childhood Screening is required by the State of Minnesota for all preschool-aged children (ages three to five), before entering public school. It is a free and simple check on how your child is growing and developing, and is structured to include fun games that will assess multiple areas of your child’s health and development, including: Vision, hearing and physical growth Health and immunization history Social and emotional development Fine and gross motor ability Cognitive development Speech, language and articulation Screening supports your child’s readiness for kindergarten and promotes positive developmental outcomes. Screening may also lead to referrals for early learning opportunities. Note: Although Early Childhood Screening is required within 30 days of entrance into Kindergarten in Minnesota’s public schools, screening is not a kindergarten entrance test.
