District #7 Gillespie Prekindergarten will conduct their annual preschool screenings on Monday, April 14 from 8:00 am to 2:30 pm, Tuesday, April 15from 1:00 to 7:30 pm, and Wednesday, April 16 from 8:00 am to 12:30 pm.
This is a free developmental screening for all preschool children who will not be attending kindergarten in the fall and will be 3-years-old by September 1, 2014.
You are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to identify your child’s strengths as well as weaknesses in the areas of fine and gross motor skills, concepts and language skills. Vision and hearing will also be screened at this time.
This screening will be used to determine eligibility for the District #7 Prekindergarten program. All parents will be informed of their child’s performance immediately following the screenings.
Parents will be asked to complete a parent interview covering early development. It may be helpful to bring the child’s baby book for some of this information. Please bring your child’s original birth certificate.
Parents of all preschool aged children are encouraged to attend. The interest shown during this screening will determine the continued growth of our program. Please share this information with those who have children of this age. For an appointment, please call BenGil Elementary at 839-4828 extension 1251 or 1226.
