Schedule Your Child’s Early Childhood Screening

Schedule your child’s free early childhood screening with Columbia Heights Public Schools to promote positive health and development outcomes and kindergarten readiness.

Early childhood screening is an important part of supporting your child’s health and development. During the screening, your child will go through a developmental screening where speech, motor and cognitive skills are reviewed. Your child will have their height, weight, vision and hearing checked. You will participate in a summary interview to review the screening process, social and emotional skills, and discuss any concerns you may have. Screenings last approximately 60 minutes.

2-7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 21

9 a.m.-3 p.m. Friday, Feb. 22
