About Early Childhood Screening

Registration for early childhood screening appointments for incoming Kindergarteners (2022-2023 school year) will begin on August 1 at noon for August dates.  All other children ages 3-5 will be able to register for fall 2022 appointments beginning on August 15 at noon. 

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. Your child can be screened at any Minnesota school district screening office to fulfill the requirement. 

The one-time screening is preferred at age 3. If your child plans to enroll into Kindergarten at Minnetonka Public Schools and was screened at another school district, please email a copy of his/her screening summary to
