Preschool, Kindergarten Screening
Effingham Unit 40 has scheduled screening for preschool and kindergarten age children April 8-11 from 8 a.m. to noon and again from 3-6 p.m. at St. John's Lutheran Church Education Annex in Effingham. The screening program provides parents information on how their child is developing language and motor skills as well as identifying children who may be delayed in their development. The child's vision and hearing also are checked. The program is offered free of charge. It may take approximately one hour. A developmental screening for children, ages newborn to three-year-olds also will be available at the same time and location. It is highly recommended all kindergarten-aged children be screened before entering kindergarten this fall.
For more information or to make an appointment, phone Sharon Chesnut, Effingham Early Childhood secretary, at 217-540-1400 by Thursday March 28.
