Early Childhood Screening

Screening is a FREE service for all children.

All Minnesota children must be screened prior to entering in kindergarten. The ideal time for screening is
between the ages of 3 and 4. Your child’s screening score is based on their age at the time of screening.

At screening, parents learn about their child’s growth and development
and can ask questions if they have concerns.

Early Childhood Screening is a FREE check
of your child’s:

l Vision
l Hearing
l Height
l Weight
l Development

Screening helps identify children who may benefit from
resources to help their development.

Screening appointments can be scheduled
online at osseo.ce.eleyo.com

To schedule a screening appointment by phone, call
763-391-8777.
