2019 Early Childhood Screening


Please contact Brandon at 218-566-2351 ex. 32018 to set up an Early Childhood Screening appointment.

Early Childhood Screening is required for Head Start, some Early Childhood programs, and Kindergarten. Earlier is better, your child should be seen at age 3.

Child & Teen Checkups

For children ages 3 to 6. Learn about how your child is doing and what to expect as your child grows older. Discover early childhood opportunities our area has to offer. If you have a concern about your child's growth and development, this is the time to ask questions and get answers.

All screenings are done by qualified professionals. They include developmental assessments, hearing and vision screenings, immunization review, the child's height and weight, identification of risk factors that may influence learning, an interview with the parent about the child and referrals when potential needs are identified.
