Early Childhood Screening

Early Childhood Screening

The Early Childhood Screening Program, conducted by the Winona School District, is offered annually to all children whose fourth birthday falls on or before September 1. Bluffview Montessori School does require this for kindergarten.

Participation in this program is required by the State of Minnesota for entrance into kindergarten. This screening program gives a careful, simple screen of the child's developmental growth including vision, hearing, growth, development, and speech. There is also a discussion with a nurse on the dental, nutritional, and immunization status of the child. This program is part of the district's Child Find process in the identification of children with handicaps.

The goals of the program are to identify health concerns and allow sufficient time to assist parents in obtaining remedial care. Nurses will assist parents in follow-up care where indicated.

Please schedule your child's screening well before kindergarten. The recommendation is to screen at age 3.
