Early Educators within the School District of Weyauwega-Fremont will hold the preschool screening this year on Monday, January 23rd from 1:00 pm-5:00 pm and Tuesday, January 24th from 8:00 am-12:00 pm at the Weyauwega-Fremont Main Street Building, 310 E Ann Street, (Old Middle School Building in the Gym) Weyauwega. This screening is one of the district’s Child Find efforts to provide improved educational opportunities for young children.
Screening is open to all children, ages 2 to 4 1/2, who have not participated in past preschool screenings sponsored by the district. This screening is essential for enrollment in the Weyauwega-Fremont Four-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 early educators within the School District of Weyauwega-Fremont. Parents will have an opportunity to learn about many community agencies including: day cares, preschools, Head Start, libraries, police and fire departments, and public health department. Hearing, vision, and health screenings will also take place by a public health nurse, optometrist and school nurse respectively.
Parents should register their child for an appointment by calling Jill Hughes, 920-867-8821 by January 20th, 2017. Two questionnaires about your child’s growth and development will then be sent to you. We are also sending along a permission form to test your child’s vision. The Lion’s club will be administering the vision test. They may be completed at home and brought to the screening appointment.
