Early Childhood Screening

Early Childhood Screening

Early Childhood Screening is a FREE service for all children.  At screening, parents learn more about their child’s development and can ask questions regarding concerns. Screening in early childhood supports children’s readiness for kindergarten by helping identify health and developmental concerns that may cause barriers to your child’s learning. Screening connects you and your child to programs and resources to support health growth and development.

State law requires all 3 to 5-year-old children in Minnesota to complete early childhood screening prior to entering kindergarten. Although your child may be screened at any time, it is best to do so between 3 and 4 years of age so any identified health or developmental concerns can be addressed sooner.

Screening includes:
vision and hearing, height and weight, immunization review, large and small muscle development, cognitive thinking, language and communication skills, social and emotional development.

If a parent is a conscientious objector to the screening program for their child, the child does not need to participate in the state screening but required forms are to be completed.

Early Childhood Screening is often called Kindergarten Screening.
