Early Childhood Screening

Has your child been screened for kindergarten? Early Childhood Screening is a health and developmental assessment for children ages 3 years and older. Early Childhood Screening is mandatory in the state of Minnesota for all children before they enter kindergarten. Screening is provided by nurses, teachers, and professionals through your school district at no cost to you. Screening helps parents to identify potential health and/or developmental concerns around vision, hearing, speech and learning. Screening connects families to resources that will help children get ready for kindergarten.

Screening appointments:

  • Last approximately 45-60 minutes.
  • Best completed between the ages of 3 and 4.
  • Check your child’s height, weight, hearing, vision and immunization record, coordination, large and small motor skills, speech, learning development and social and emotional skills.
  • Involve playful activities that make it an enjoyable experience for your child, while providing valuable information to the screener.
  • Help identify any needs that may require attention before your child enters school. Screening is not a test.
  • Produce immediate results. Your screener will discuss the results with you right after the appointment and answer any of your questions.
