• Early Childhood Screening
    The early 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.  This screening is done between the ages of three and a half and four years.
    It identifies, at an early stage, possible learning or health concerns, so that children can get the needed help before starting school.
    All of the information from your child's Early Childhood Screening is important to his/her future school success.  After screening, you will know how your child is growing, developing, and learning.
    Early Childhood Screening is required for entrance into Minnesota Public Schools.
    We will be starting to schedule appointments in mid August of 2022 for the 2022-2023 school year.  We are out of the office during the summer months.
    For more Early Childhood Screening information or to schedule a screening, call Amy at 507-929-2639.
