Early Childhood Screening

The years from birth to the start of kindergarten are an important time of rapid learning and growth. Early Childhood Screening is a FREE, quick, and simple check of your child`s development. It can help identify, at an early stage, possible health or learning concerns, so that children can get help even before starting kindergarten. Minnesota law requires that your child be screened before enrollment in public school kindergarten.

  • Earlier is better! The best age to have your child screened is at age 3 1/2. All results are based on your child's exact age on the day of screening.
  • Children enrolled in Head Start will be screened there and records are forwarded to their school district
  • If your child has had an educational evaluation and/or is currently receiving Special Education/Early Intervention services, they do not need to be screened
  • Results of each portion are discussed with the parent or guardian
  • Screening does not determine readiness for kindergarten
