If your child is between 3 and 4, now is the optimum age to be screened so children can then be referred to appropriate resources, if needed. If your child is entering Kindergarten in the fall of 2024, the August 2024 screening will be the last time in which you can schedule an appointment for your child. Next Screening Dates: August 20, 21, 22nd 2024 Early Childhood Educators and a registered nurse conduct the screening. Screening is a quick and simple check of how a child is growing and developing. The Screening Includes: Hearing and Vision Height and Weight Social and emotional development Large and small muscles Thinking, language and communication skills A check of Immunization Records and Family Health Information. The screening process takes approximately 1- 1/2 hours during which time your child will separate from you.
