Wheaton-Warrenville Community Unit School District #200 offers numerous free screenings throughout the school year for children, ages 3 through 5 years of age who are residents of District #200 but who are not yet eligible for kindergarten classes.
The purpose of this screening is to detect possible developmental delays that might negatively impact a child’s learning. Children will be screened in the areas of speech, language, hearing, vision, motor skills, play skills and conceptual skills. This screening will be completed by Jefferson Early Childhood Center Diagnostic Team members and will only take about 60 minutes. This screening will NOT determine if a child is ready for kindergarten. Please call for an appointment if you have concerns regarding your child’s development.
Screenings are by appointment only and are scheduled for various days throughout the school year. We are currently taking appointments for the 2013-2014 school year. Interested parents should contact us by calling the Jefferson Early Childhood Center Diagnostic Team at (630) 682-2109. We encourage families to make appointments early since we have a limited number of spaces available per school year. Once our appointment calendar is full for this school year, we will take information to proceed with a preschool screening during the 2014-2015 school year.
After January 2014 questions or concerns regarding upcoming kindergarten aged students should be addressed to your neighborhood elementary school. Parents of upcoming kindergartners are also encouraged to watch for kindergarten roundup dates and the kindergarten visitation schedule.
