Service Details

Description

Early Childhood Screening is for children between the ages of three and the start of kindergarten. However, it is best to screen between the ages of three and four. It checks to see how a child is growing and developing. The screening is used to find health or learning concerns that the child needs help with before starting school. Screening may link families to free early learning opportunities and resources such as Head Start, Early Childhood Family Education, prekindergarten programs, Early Learning Scholarships or home visiting programs.


Screening is required before entering Minnesota's public school district or within 30 days of enrollment into kindergarten.


Trained professionals will check your child's:
* Vision
* Hearing
* Height and weight
* Immunizations (shots) status
* Large and small muscles
* Thinking, language and communication skills
* Social and emotional development
