Early Childhood Screening:

An early look at your child’s health and development, this screening allows any health and developmental concerns to be addressed at least one year before kindergarten. This free service is required by the state of MN for entrance into kindergarten. Please do it early. The ideal age is 3 – 4 years. Screening includes: height, weight, vision test, hearing test and developmental games. The Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) is pleased to offer an Early Childhood Screening Parent Video.
