MALDEN — The Malden Stepping Stones program will hold its annual preschool, kindergarten screenings from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 3 at Malden Grade School, for children who live in Cherry, LaMoille, Malden and Ohio. The screening is for all children who will be 3 years old by the day of screening, but are not yet in kindergarten. The screening is free of charge.
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. The information will also help identify if the child qualifies for Malden’s Stepping Stones preschool program for the fall semester.
