Early Learning Screening
In Minnesota, all children are required to complete an Early Learning Screening to find out how they are growing and developing before they enter kindergarten. Children should be registered for their free screening between their third and fourth birthdays.
At the screening, early childhood specialists observe the child's vision, hearing, speech and development. Early screening will help identify any conditions that might impact a child's learning and assist parents in taking steps to help the child.
During the screening, you will stay with your child while his or her hearing, vision, height, weight, speech and development are assessed. Early childhood specialists will review your child's immunization record and Ages and Stages Social/Emotional indicator and visit with you about their observations.
