Aug. 6, 2020 Screening Update

Due to our continued building closure, we are not able to complete early childhood screenings at this time. We are currently planning to offer limited screening appointments beginning mid-September.  Please check our online scheduler frequently at to see what appointments are available.

Early Childhood Screening helps identify children who may benefit from early childhood services before they enter kindergarten and connects you to appropriate programs and resources. The activities are like games, so most children have fun during their screening appointment!

The state of Minnesota requires all children to be screened before entering kindergarten. The screening is most valuable soon after your child’s third birthday.

Screening is FREE and includes vision and hearing, immunization, growth and development check. Your child will be assessed in these important areas: 

  • Preschool concepts
  • Communication skills
  • Motor skills
  • Social emotional skills

Screening takes about 1 hour. This free screening gives you and your child an early connection to Bloomington Public Schools.
