Early Childhood Screening

Early Childhood Screening

Early Childhood Screening is a process that supports children being ready for kindergarten. The program helps find possible health or developmental concerns that may impact a child'slearning.

The process includes a check of vision and hearing, child development and a review of the child's health. The program helps families access services for their children that will help them to be ready for kindergarten.  

Minneapolis Public Schools recommends that children be screened at age 3. (State law also requires all children to be screened before entering kindergarten.)

Three reasons to screen at age 3:

  1. Screening can help your child be ready for school.
     
  2. Any health or developmental concerns can be found earlier and help provided sooner.
     
  3. Because screening is free, it's easy and it's good for your child!
