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.

Request a Screening

The screening office is closed for the summer. Please complete this Early Childhood Screening Request Form, and when screening appointments become available, you will receive an email with a link to “Sign Up Genius,” where you can schedule an appointment date and time that fits your schedule. 

Make sure you get your child's enrollment paperwork back to the office even though you do not have an appointment scheduled. Your child will still be able to start school as planned.
