Early Childhood Screening

Early Childhood Screening will be closing effective November 23, 2020 until further notice

If you already had an appointment scheduled in December, it has been cancelled. 


This is in response to Governor Walz and District 196 School guidelines; as well as due to the rising number of Covid cases in Dakota County. 


Virtual screening appointments will take place in January 2021. If you are already on our contact list, we will call you as soon as appointment times open to schedule.  If you’d like to be put on the list to be called for one of these appointments, please call 651-423-7899, and leave your child’s name, birthdate, and best phone number to contact you to schedule your child’s appointment.


Thanks for your patience.  Stay safe and be well!
