The early childhood years from birth to the start of kindergarten are an important time of rapid learning and growth in your child’s life. Early Childhood Screening, provided by your local school district, is a free and simple check of how your child is growing, developing, and learning.
It is recommended that your child be screened between the ages of three and four. In order for your child to start kindergarten in any Minnesota public school, you will need to provide your child’s Early Childhood Screening Summary Form and Immunization Record. Additionally, some private schools recommend/require screening.
The following screening dates are subject to change/cancellation due to the COVID-19 situation. If GSL Schools are in a distance learning model, virtual early childhood screening will be available in place of in-person screenings.

In-person screening is held at the GSL Early Childhood Learning Center, located at 1621 16th Street, Glencoe on the west side of Lincoln Elementary (door 18). Please wait in the entry way and a staff member will meet you. If there is another family waiting in the entry way, please wait outside. As a reminder, parents will need to wear a mask while in the building. While it is encouraged for your child to wear a mask, it is not required.
Please contact us if you are unable to keep your appointment due to illness so that we may offer that time to another child. If you need to reschedule your appointment, please call Michelle Marti at 320.864.2681 as soon as possible.
