Early Childhood Screening

  • Please note:  We are not currently scheduling Early Childhood Screening appointments until further notice.
    All scheduled screenings are cancelled while our schools are closed due to the coronavirus.  We will contact you at a future date to re-schedule.
    Early Childhood Screening, conducted at Pike Lake Education Center in New Brighton,  is a quick and simple check of how your child is growing and developing.  Screening can detect possible health or learning concerns, so that children can get help before they start kindergarten.  We recommend that children attend screening at 3 1/2 years of age.

    At the screening appointment, a licensed early childhood teacher checks vision, hearing, height and weight, large and small muscle skills, thinking, language and communication skills and social and emotional development. 

    Call the Early Childhood Screening appointment desk at 651-621-7350 to schedule your child's FREE screening today. Once the appointment is made, bring your child healthy, well rested, fed and in comfortable clothes.  Bring completed forms, a current record of your child’s immunizations and your child's birth certificate.  Allow one hour for the screening.

    Complete the preliminary forms below prior to your child's screening appointment.
