Early Childhood Screening

  • Early Childhood Screenings are required for all children before entering kindergarten in Minnesota. The Chisago Lakes School District provides free Early Childhood Screenings throughout the school year at the Chisago Lakes Family Center for children who are 3 to 5 years old.

    During early childhood screenings, staff will check your child's vision, hearing, height, weight, immunization status, thinking & communication skills, & social and emotional development. Parents will have the opportunity to discuss the results of the screening with a Family Center staff member.

    • Appointments last approximately 1.5 hours
    • Bring a copy of the birth certificate and immunization form
      • If you have already submitted the above documents to the school, please bring another copy.

    The ideal age for screening is 3 1/2 years old
