Early Childhood Screening

Dear Parents/Guardians:

We are looking for 3-4 year olds! Please remember to call for an Early Childhood Screening appointment when your child turns 3. Screening is not an intelligence test. We screen early because:

  • All children must be screened once before kindergarten entrance or participation in an Early Childhood program.
  • Screening is free, it’s fun, and it’s a great opportunity for you to see your child’s total growth.
  • If potential problems are identified, your child will receive appropriate follow-up or be connected with resources in the school and community.
  • We can refer your child to Preschools and Early Childhood opportunities. Your child will automatically be enrolled in a school district at the time of screening.
  • A screening includes:
    • Height/Weight
    • Vision/Hearing
    • General development
    • Health history
    • Immunization review
