Preparations for kindergarten begin in the preschool years! Early Childhood Screening is required for children entering Kindergarten in a public school in Minnesota.
School District 2149 offers developmental screenings and contracts with Horizon Public Health (Glenwood office) to provide this service. Completion is recommended between the ages of 3-4 years old.
Early Childhood Screening is a simple check of how children are doing during their preschool years-a time of rapid growth and development. While it’s designed to identify possible health or learning concerns, this screening also offers an opportunity for parents to address concerns that they may have regarding a child’s speech, hearing, vision and overall development.
To schedule an appointment for early childhood screening, contact
Horizon Public Health (Glenwood office) at 320-634-7822.
