Early Childhood Screening

  • Has your 3 year old been screened? 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. Screening is required of all children in Minnesota prior to Kindergarten entrance. The earlier the better! Early Childhood Screening is not a Kindergarten readiness test or IQ test. Waiting until your child is 4 or 5 to screen may be too long. Screening will take 60 to 90 minutes.
