Early Childhood Screening helps identify children who may benefit from early childhood services before they enter kindergarten and connects you to appropriate programs and resources. 

The state of Minnesota requires all children to be screened before entering kindergarten. The screening is most valuable soon after your child’s third birthday.

Screening is FREE and includes growth, development, and  immunization check. Your child will be assessed in these important areas: 

  • Preschool concepts
  • Communication skills
  • Motor skills
  • Social emotional skills

This free screening gives you and your child an early connection to Bloomington Public Schools.

Screenings are now in person at the Pond Center.
Important COVID 19 Instructions:

  • At this time masks are not required for adults. Please look for signage on the front door for any changes to this policy should guidance be updated.
  • Only one parent and the child being screened are allowed to attend this appointment.
  • Screener, adult, and child will all wash hands before and after the screening appointment.
  • All materials used in the screening appointment will be disinfected between appointments.

It is strongly recommended that youth, staff, and parents/guardians continue to wear face coverings inside all Bloomington Public Schools buildings.

As vaccination availability for youth under 12 has not yet been implemented and vaccination rates for 12 - 15 year olds and within our communities of color in Hennepin County are still increasing, Bloomington Public Schools will continue to follow the strong recommendation from the Minnesota Department of Health that individuals wear a face covering anytime indoors in a Bloomington Public Schools building.
