The State of Minnesota requires that all children complete a free early childhood screening given by Community Education. The purpose of the screening is to provide parents with general information about their child's growth and development and to identify children who may show potential health or developmental concerns. In our district, it is preferred screening for children take place between the age of 3 and 4 years old. This allows for social and developmental learning at preschool prior to the age of 4 to take place.

Registration takes place at all elementary schools in January each year. When registering your child for kindergarten bring the following to your child's school:
