3-Year Old Screenings:

Early childhood screening helps a school district identify children who may benefit from district and community resources available to help in their development. Early childhood is an important time of rapid learning and growth. With the increasing recognition of the early years as critical in a child’s development, schools are evaluating children at younger ages to determine their strengths and concerns in important activities, allowing time for strengthening these concerns and helping all children be as ready for school as possible.

Early Childhood Screening is a FREE service available for all children, even if home-schooling or private school is the family’s choice.

What is Early Childhood Screening? It is a careful, simple check of your child’s growth in all areas – physical, developmental and emotional. Early Childhood Screenings are conducted to ensure that all young children are well-equipped and ready for learning and that families are aware of resources in their school and community. It helps parents see how their child is progressing compared to other children of the same age. In general, screening provides a way for parents to learn more about their children.

The results of the screening will be reviewed with the parent or guardian, and any follow-up recommendations will be discussed. Screening appointments take approximately 30 minutes and are scheduled once your child turns three.  To set up an Early Childhood Screening for your child you can contact Linda Figi, ECH/4K Teacher directly at (608) 439-5371 ext. 180
