All pre-school screenings will be held this year at the Chadwick School, 19 School St.

Social distancing will be done more effectively at this location because of the size of the building. All three Carroll County school districts will have a date to attend screenings.

The screenings are free of charge and give parents a measure of how their child is developing and how they can help their child learn even more. Testing includes vision and hearing, motor, language and cognitive development.

During an exit conference, parents will be given an overview of how their child did along with information about educational opportunities and free pre-school programs.

Screenings are provided by Early Step Pre-school, Right Steps Family Center, Carroll County school districts, Bi-County Special Education and TCOC Head Start.

Each school district is scheduling screening appointments for children who will be 3 or 4 years old by Sept. 1, 2021.

Parents interested in how their children, ages 4 months to 2-1/2 years, are developing should call the Right Steps Family Center at 815-273-7532 to set up a testing appointment at time and place convenient for you.
