About Early Childhood Screening

Screening is held at the WM Community Learning Center, and is a check of how your child is growing and developing based on their developmental age. Getting your child screened between the ages of 3 and 4 helps show you areas of strength and any areas of concern in your child's development. This will help your child be prepared for success in Kindergarten.

At your child's screening we will check your child's:

  • vision
  • hearing
  • height and weight
  • immunization status
  • large and small muscles
  • cognitive skills
  • language skills
  • social and emotional development

An Early Childhood Screening is needed for any child starting kindergarten in any Minnesota public school. If your child has been screened by another school district, Early Childhood Special Education, or Head Start, they do not need to be screened again. You can also elect to be a conscientious objector if you would not like your child to be screened.

For more information or questions about screening contact our Screening Coordinator, Dawn Hilgers. dhilgers@wm.k12.mn.us or contact WM Community Education at 952-955-0280.
