Having a health and development assessment before starting Preschool or Kindergarten helps assure that your child gets off to a the best possible start.

Early Childhood Screenings (ECS)
For most of the schools in Douglas, Grant, Pope, Stevens and Traverse counties, the school districts contract with Horizon Public Health to complete the screenings for children about to enter Kindergarten.  Depending on the school your child will attend, the screening may take place at the school, or at one of the Horizon Public Health offices.  We work together with the schools to make sure all of the screenings are completed. You can call Horizon Public Health to find out about scheduling and what to expect!

If you have a child that is over 3 years old and have not received a call from us about scheduling the screening, please call Horizon Public Health to schedule an appointment at 320-208-6688.
