We want you to know our first concern is for your family's welfare, so as a safety precaution, School District 191 has cancelled all Early Childhood Screening appointments scheduled through the end of the school year. This delay will not affect 2020-2021 preschool/pre-k applications for the lottery. After May 1, Parents will be able to schedule appointments in August. You will be able to schedule your child online August Screening appointments, or call us at 952-707-4110 to set up an appointment with you.
Early Childhood Screening is a free service
for children 36-60 months old.
The ideal age for screening is 3 years old. Screening helps ensure that all young children are well equipped for learning, and that families are aware of resources in the school and community.
Screening is essential to your child's future success in school.
Early Childhood Screening is a free and simple check of your child's vision, hearing, height, weight and development (thinking, communication and language, large and small muscles, and social/emotional development), as well as a brief review of health history and immunizations. After your child's screening, you will be given a full report of your child's learning and growth.
Screening is required for kindergarten entry.
You will need to provide your school with your child's Early Childhood Screening summary and immunization record prior to attending kindergarten in any Minnesota public school. Children who attend Head Start or Early Childhood Special Education programs may not need to be screened.
Early Childhood Screening is FREE.
Screenings are held at Diamondhead Education CenterPlease download and complete the required screening forms prior to your appointment. The links are below.

The State of Minnesota recommends an interpreter be used for parents or children if English is not the primary language spoken at home. Using the home language during screening can provide a better picture of your child’s development. We will provide interpreters for families free of charge.
