Early Childhood Screening - October 6, 2022
Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) / Early Childhood Screening -
NOTE: If your child will be entering kindergarten in fall 2022, please do NOT make an appointment here since October is too late to meet the state requirement. Please contact us at ECScreening@isd12.org for information on your options.
Early Childhood Screening is a FREE check of a child's hearing and vision, weight and height, health history, immunizations, speech and language, general development and motor skills. Screening identifies children who may have health or developmental concerns and allows for appropriate assistance as early as possible. Please note that screening is NOT a readiness test for kindergarten.
Screening is required for Kindergarten entrance. A child can be screened anytime after age 3.
Important notes! There is no charge for this screening, but you must complete the checkout to be enrolled. You must also receive a confirmation email upon checkout or you will not be considered enrolled for your time slot. Note that we will contact you by mail and phone regarding your appointment, so please double-check that your Eleyo account has up-to-date contact information.
What does this screening include?
- vision and hearing check
- growth evaluation
- immunization review
- developmental screening using a Minnesota state approved standardized tool
- family health and development review
- information and resources for your child
Minnesota State screening requirements may also take place through another school district, a physician’s office, the Head Start program or Public Health. Contact us for more information: 763-792-6120.
If possible, please do not bring other children so you may devote full attention to your child. We have found that brothers and sisters distract the child being screened and the process takes longer.
