Early Childhood Screening

ECS is a free health and developmental screening that meets Minnesota State’s requirements for all children to be screened before entering kindergarten. ECS includes a review of health history and immunizations, a vision and hearing check, height, weight, and a developmental screening. Early Childhood Screening includes a vision screening that helps detect potential eye problems, but is not a substitute for a comprehensive eye exam. The short video above will give you more information about early childhood screening.

A developmental screening is required by Minnesota law prior to kindergarten entrance. It is reassuring for parents to know that their child is acquiring the skills necessary for success in school. A screening can also identify potential health or learning problems that need further evaluation. ECS can link families to community programs and services.

It is time for Early Childhood Screening if your child has reached 3 years of age. Between the ages of 3 and 4, screening can detect possible health or learning concerns so that children can get help before they start school. You can now schedule your early childhood screening online. Please click on Schedule Your Appointment below.
