Early Childhood Screening
Hastings Public Schools Early Childhood Screenings
Preschoolers between the ages of 3 and 5 years old need to participate in a screening before entering kindergarten.
Please follow these steps to participate in early childhood screening:
- Call Linda Gunter at 651-480-7381 to schedule a screening appointment.
- Submit required forms online prior to your appointment day:
Helpful Hints for filling out the questionnaires:
1) Enter Child’s Birthdate
2) Check “I am screening my child today.”
3) Hit “submit”
4) This will take you to a new page–scroll to the bottom and hit the blue button that says “Enter your results” to get started answering questions about your child.
At screening, your child will participate in screening tools that support children’s development, checking: language and communication skills, social development, large and small motor skills and cognitive skills. Screening also includes vision and hearing, height and weight and immunization review.
You will meet with a teacher and nurse to review the results and the additional information you have provided about your child.
USEFUL TOOLS FOR PARENTS:
Note: State law requires immunizations upon enrolling in the ECFE and Tilden Community Preschool programs. Parents may get a legal exemption from the law for medical reasons or conscientiously held beliefs. Call your doctor, clinic, or health plan for information.
