Why have Early Childhood Round-up?
This event is for preschoolers (age 3 by Sept. 1st) and kindergarteners (age 5 by Sept. 1st). Preschool students will be screened if a parent expresses concern for an area of development listed below. All new kindergarteners will be screened. This information will help the school staff determine class sizes and readiness levels for the coming year.
What is Child Find?
Child Find helps the school locate students between the ages of 0-22 years who may demonstrate concerns in one or more of the areas to be screened (listed below). This includes preschool children ages 2 ½ years through 4 years old whose parents request that their child be screened.
Areas to be screened:
 Cognitive Ability
 Adaptive Skills
 Physical Development
 Communication Skills
 Social – Emotional Development
 Vision/Hearing Screening (Wellness Center)
Although we will screen any child that visits us during this timeframe, we would like to encourage you to call (prior to May 3) and reserve a time. This will help us avoid overlaps and hopefully prevent you from having to wait. Questions or to reserve a specific time: 928-442-3258 (Katie)
