Early Childhood Screening

An Early Childhood Screening is a free developmental and health screening that helps ensure all children are equipped for learning.

During Your Visit

An Early Childhood Screening is a required step to complete before starting school. Screening may be completed anytime between  the age of 3 years and the start of Kindergarten. Children are screened according to their specific age. There is no need to wait to screen, thinking that your child will be better prepared. Our goal is to support children and make sure they are ready for learning on their first day of school.
