About Early Childhood Screening

Early Childhood Screening is a free service for children ages 3 to 5 years old.  

 Screening includes:

  • A check of vision, hearing, height, weight and developmental progress.
  • A review of immunizations records and family information.
  • An individual review with parents/guardians of their child's progress and needs. Early Childhood Screening identifies needs that may require special attention before a child enters school.

NEW: Parents/guardians can now choose one of two options to complete their child’s Early Childhood Screening! Choose the most convenient option for your family:

PHONE APPOINTMENT
  • Parent/guardian requests Screening paperwork for their child. The paperwork is mailed to parent/guardian to complete and returned by mail to the Screening office.
  • After paperwork is received the Screening office calls parent/guardian to schedule a phone appointment with district screener. During the scheduled phone appointment, the district screener will review the child's screening results with the parent/guardian. Approximately 15-minute time commitment. To learn more watch this video about phone appointments.
  • Starting May 2021 parents with children going to kindergarten in the fall 2021 will participate in the phone appointment option.
