Early Childhood Screening

  • The early childhood years from birth to the start of kindergarten are an important time of rapid learning and growth. Early Childhood Screening is a quick and simple check of how your child is growing and developing. Between the ages of 3 and 4, screening can detect possible health or learning concerns, so that children can get help before they start school.

    Should I wait until my child is in kindergarten?
    No, earlier is better! Waiting until a child is in school is too long. If your child is between the ages of 3 and 4, call your school district to ask about Early Childhood Screening.

    Does my child need an Early Childhood Screening?
    All of the information from your child’s Early Childhood Screening is important to his/her future school success. After the screening, you will know how your child is growing, developing and learning. In order for your child to start kindergarten in any Minnesota public school, you will need to provide your child’s Early Childhood Screening Summary Form and Immunization Record.

    Is there a charge?
    Early Childhood Screening is FREE!
