Early Childhood Screening
Dear Parent/Guardians:
We are looking for all 3 - 4 year olds! Please remember to call for an Early Childhood
Screening appointment when your child turns 3! Screening is not an intelligence test,
but we want to screen early because:
• All children must be screened once before kindergarten entrance or participation
in an Early Childhood program.
• Screening is free, it is fun, and it is a great opportunity for you to see your child’s
total growth.
• If potential problems are identified, your child will receive appropriate follow-up or
be connected with resources in the school and community.
• We can refer your child to Preschools and Early Childhood opportunities. Your
child will automatically be enrolled into a school district at the time of screening
• It includes:
1. height/weight
2. vision/hearing
3. general development
4. health history
5. immunization review
Call your district today to schedule an Early Childhood Screening appointment at:
ISD 316 Greenway: 245-6804
ISD 317 Deer River: 246-8860, ext 60412
ISD 318 Grand Rapids: 327-5572
