Early Childhood Screening


Calling ALL three year olds!

Has your Child had their Early Childhood Screening?

Early Childhood Screening is a free and simple check of how your child is growing, developing and learning. It is best done when your child is around 3 years old. It is also a requirement for any child entering school in Minnesota. (This includes Otter Preschool - it only needs to be done once in the school district attending prior to beginning Kindergarten.)

What to expect at a screening appointment

A trained professional will check:

  • Vision and hearing

  • Growth, immunizations and movement

  • Thinking, language and communication skills

  • Social and emotional development

  • **Please Note: that due to the recent COVID-19 protocols we were unable to do screenings, we are in the process of working to get back on track with regular screenings. Thank you for your patience as we work everyone in!
