• Early Childhood Screening

  • Early Childhood Screening is a quick and simple check of how your child is growing and developing.

    When completed between the ages of 3 and 4, screening can detect possible health or learning concerns so that children can get help before they start school.

    Early Childhood Screening is required for all children in a School Readiness preschool program and is mandatory for any child who will attend kindergarten at a public school in Minnesota.

    At Early Childhood Screening, a trained professional will check your child's:

    • Vision
    • Hearing
    • Height & Weight
    • Large & Small Muscles
    • Thinking, Language & Communication Skills
    • Social & Emotional Development

    Early Childhood Screening is offered free of charge to all children living in the Byron Public School District. Screening will be held at Byron's District Administration and Community Services (DACS) building during the hours of 7:45 AM and 3:00 PM with appointments lasting approximately 90 minutes.  Due to COVID-19 guidelines, we are also offering a distance screening option for those who request it.
