Early Childhood Screening

Early Childhood Screening

In Minnesota, all children are required to complete Early Childhood Screening before they enter public school kindergarten.  Screening should be done once your child is 3 years old.  This is an opportunity for you to review your child’s growth and development and to follow up on any concerns.  It includes a developmental assessment, vision and hearing testing, height and weight measurement, immunization and health history review and a parent interview.  Screening IS NOT an examination to determine readiness for school.  Rather, its purpose is to identify conditions which might interfere with your child’s ability to learn.  Appointment letters will be sent to all families with age eligible children who are on the Rush City School District Census.  Please call Rush City Early Childhood at 320-358-3635 if you are not sure if your child is on the census.
