Child Find - Preschool Screenings
The Child Find Screening is the first step in our enrollment process. All children and families participate in a screening prior to enrollment in the ECE Program. The screening consists of a vision and hearing screening, a review of immunization and health history, a developmental play-based screening, and a parent interview. The information gathered during the screening is used to determine eligibility for funded (free) preschool and to discuss potential needs or services that might support student and family success. Child Find screenings take place on a monthly basis.
The Child Find Screening Appointment includes the following:
- A play observation session with a multidisciplinary team to check developmental skills
- A parent interview for sharing of information between families and the ECE program
- A hearing and vision screening, and a review of health records
- An exit session
