Early Childhood Screening

Early Childhood Screening
The early childhood years from birth to the start of kindergarten are an important time of rapid learning and growth. Early Childhood screenings should be completed between the ages of 3 and 5 years.

Screening is a brief, simple procedure used to identify potential health or developmental problems in infants and young children who may need a health assessment, diagnostic assessment or educational evaluation.  Screening in early childhood supports children's readiness for kindergarten and promotes positive child health and developmental outcomes.

Early Childhood Screening is required for entrance in Minnesota’s public schools or within 30 days of enrollment into kindergarten.  Early Childhood Screening is offered by Mid-State Education District in partnership with the home districts.

Please Contact: Screening Secretary with questions or for more information and to schedule a screening by phone 320-631-2505 or via email at
