• What is early childhood screening?

    girl playing with blocksScreening is an early look at a child's development and begins as early as age three. This allows health and developmental concerns to be addressed at least one to two years before a child enters kindergarten. The state of Minnesota requires health and developmental screening for every child before kindergarten entry into a public school. Anoka-Hennepin offers this service at no cost. Screening is not a substitute for health care from your family physician, dentist, or other health care providers.

    • Fine and gross motor skills
    • Vision and hearing
    • Speech and language development
    • Height and weight
    • Cognitive and social development
    • Immunizations
