Kimberly Siltman, PreK Programs Coordinator
Developmental Screening (Preschool Screening)

The purpose of Developmental Screening is to assess children's speech and language development, problem-solving skills, fine and gross motor skills, and social skills. Any family living within District 186 boundaries can request a developmental screening or "Learning Check Up" of their child's age appropriate skills. At the time of screening, families will be asked to provide their child's original Certified Birth Certificate to verify the child's age.

 A Developmental Screening must take place prior to a child's enrollment in Early Start. Screening appointments are scheduled each month throughout the school year. To learn more about screening, please call the Early Start Program Office at 217-525-3365.
