Early educators within the Weyauwega-Fremont School District will hold preschool screenings from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Jan. 24, and from 8 a.m. to noon Tuesday, Jan. 25, at the Weyauwega-Fremont Main Street building. It is the old middle school located at 310 E. Ann St. The screening will be held in the gym.
This screening is one of the school district’s Child Find efforts to provide improved educational opportunities for young children. The screening is open to all children ages 2 to 4 1/2 who have not participated in past preschool screenings by the district. This screening is essential for enrollment in the Weyauwega-Fremont 4-year-old kindergarten program. Children will participate in a play-based screening.
The developmental areas of social, self-help, fine motor, gross motor and language will be observed by the school district’s early educators.
Parents will have an opportunity to meet with representatives of many community agencies, including day cares, preschools, Head Start, libraries, police and fire departments, and the public health department.
Hearing, vision and health screenings will also take place by a public health nurse, optometrist and school nurse, respectively.
Parents may register their children for an appointment by calling Jill Hughes at 920-867-8821 by Jan. 20.
Two questionnaires about the child’s growth and development will then be sent out, and they may be completed at home and brought to the screening appointment.
