  • Preparations for kindergarten begin in the preschool years! Early Childhood Screening is required for children entering preschool and Kindergarten in a public school in Minnesota.Early Childhood Screening

    Annandale Public Schools offers free developmental screening to provide this service. We encourage all children to be screened at the age of 3 - 4 years of age.

    Early Childhood Screening is a simple check of how children are doing during their preschool years - a time of rapid growth and development. While it's designed to identify possible health or learning concerns, this screening also offers an opportunity for parents to address concerns that they may have regarding a child's speech, hearing, vision and overall development.
