LaMoille, Cherry and Ohio school districts will hold their annual pre-school screening April 22-23 at Allen Junior High Gymnasium in LaMoille. The screening is for children who are 3 years old by the day of the screening and who are not yet in kindergarten. Contact Sharon File at 815-638-2233 to schedule an appointment.
The purpose of the screening is to provide information on how a child uses his or her body (motor skills), knowledge of basic concepts like counting and colors (conceptual skills), and the child’s use of language.
Vision and hearing screenings will also be done. This information can help identify if the child’s skills are appropriate for his or her age. It will also plan for the child’s education and, if necessary, begin to look at any special needs that he or she may have at home or in the school setting.
