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 Center, 200 West Burnsville Parkway, in Burnsville.
Use lower level parking off Pillsbury Avenue and enter door 11.
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.
Interpreters are provided for families free of charge.
