NCOE Schools Will Conduct Child Find/Preschool Screenings This March

The NCOE Schools are conducting Child Find/Preschool Screenings for Birth to 5 year old children not yet enrolled in public schools and who will not be kindergarten eligible in the fall. The screening checks each child’s progress in hearing, vision, speech, language, and coordination skills. This will give parents a better idea of how their child is progressing at this very young age before he/she begins school. This screening program is free and parents will revive immediate feedback on how their child is developing. Head Start personnel may also be present to explain their program and services.

In March, the Child Find/Preschool Screening will be held at Presbyterian Church in Norris City on the 16th from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. On the 17th, the screening will be held in Enfield at the Christian Church from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The screening procedure takes about 45 minutes, and appointments must be made so that children do not have a long wait period. Parents should call NCO at 618-378-3212 or Booth at 618-963-2818 to make an appointment or to get more information.

Remember! The service is a free check of your child’s progress in the developmental areas, but appointments are needed. If you live in Enfield, Springerton, Omaha, or Norris City call today to make an appointment for your preschooler.
