If your child is between the ages 3 and 4, it is time for Early Childhood Screening. Screening is a free and simple check of your child's vision, hearing, height, weight and development, as well as a brief review of health history and immunizations. The process takes about 1 hour and a half, from start to finish.
Screening has two major purposes. It is used to determine if a child's development is on track, and to provide families with information about community and learning resources for young children.
The state of Minnesota requires that children be screened before entering kindergarten.
