Child Development Day is an opportunity for children with a 9/1/2014 and 9/1/2016 to be screened. If your child is between 2 and 4 years of age and has never been screened, or if you have concerns about their development, please call to schedule an appointment. We strongly encourage all district children to attend regardless of where you plan to send your child to school.
However, this screening is not mandatory to be able to register for 4K.
Algoma Elementary School child development screening days will be held on Thursday, January 17, 2019, with groups starting at 4:00 PM & 5:30 PM and Friday, January 18, 2019, with groups starting at 8:00 AM & 9:30 AM at the Algoma Elementary School, 514 Fremont St.
To sign up for a time to have your child screened, please go to https://goo.gl/forms/HAKN4iIywNxAfd1h2 or call Rachel Schneider, Early Childhood Teacher, at 487-7001 ext 1100.
Registration is due by January 10, 2019. After you are registered, we will mail you developmental inventories to fill out at home and return at screening as this will give us information about your child’s development.
Our mission is to provide parents with:
* An opportunity to assess your child’s development
* Information on child development
* possibility of hearing/vision screening depending on availability of equipment
Your child will have the opportunity to play and interact with peers in a small group setting for about an hour. During this time, our team will assess their development in the areas of cognition, motor, personal-social, speech & language, and self-help skills through observations and small tasks. There is no cost to families for the screening.
