Early Childhood Screening

The early childhood years from birth to the start of kindergarten are an important time of rapid learning and growth.

Screening is a brief, simple procedure used to identify potential health or developmental problems in infants and young children who may need a health assessment, diagnostic assessment or educational evaluation. Screening in early childhood supports children's readiness for kindergarten and promotes health and development. Screening includes vision and hearing, height and weight, immunization review, large and small muscles, thinking, language and communication skills, as well as social and emotional development.

Early Childhood Screening is required by law before a student may attend public kindergarten.
