Early Childhood Screening

Early Childhood screening is a free and simple check of how your child is growing, developing and learning.

Screening is required by the State of Minnesota for any child enrolling in a public school and is provided free of charge. While screening is required prior to kindergarten, the recommended age is 3 and is required prior to enrollment in preschool and pre-kindergarten programs. For more information, visit  Minnesota Department of Education website.

During screening a trained professional will check:

  • vision and hearing
  • height and weight
  • immunization history
  • large and small muscles
  • thinking, language and communication skills
  • social and emotional development
We have completed screening for the 2023-24 school year. Fall appointments will be available online after July 1, 2024
