The early childhood years from birth to the start of kindergarten are an important time of rapid learning and growth. The Pequot Lakes School District's early childhood screening scheduled Monday, April 18, is a quick and simple check of how a child is growing and developing.

Between ages 3 and 4 is the ideal time to schedule children to participate in the screening program. A nurse and an early childhood teacher who can detect possible health or learning concerns conduct early childhood screening.

The cognitive learning portions of the screening are based on the actual age of the child. The major benefit of the screening program is to identify concerns early so that a child can get help before they start school.

The early childhood screening includes a vision screening that helps detect potential eye problems but is not a substitute for a comprehensive eye exam.

In order to start kindergarten in any Minnesota public school, all children will need to be screened.
