EARLY CHILDHOOD PROGRAMS

EARLY CHILDHOOD SCREENING ANNANDALE PUBLIC SCHOOLS & MAPLE LAKE PUBLIC SCHOOLS The early childhood years from birth to the rest of kindergarten are an important time of rapid learning and growth. Early Childhood screening is a simple check of how your child is growing and developing. Between the ages of 3 and 4, screening can detect possible health and learning concerns so that children can get help before they start school. Parents accompany their child through the approximate hour-long process. After the screening activities, the screener shares information on the child’s growth, development, and learning. The screening is free for children. You are encouraged to be screened in the district you reside in. Early childhood screening is not a “test.” Your child will not pass/fail. It is a tool to identify concerns, if any exist, to provide help before kindergarten. Screening is required before entering kindergarten in a MN public school.

IS YOUR CHILD READY FOR THE NEXT STEP? AN ANNANDALE PRESCHOOL PREVIEW: PARENTS ONLY An information night for parents interested in the 2020-2021 Annandale Preschool and Cardinal Kids Club Program Learn about these school district programs and how they can benefit your child’s early learning.

WHAT IS EARLY CHILDHOOD FAMILY EDUCATION/ECFE?

ECFE is a unique parent-child education program for all families with children ages Birth – Kindergarten

Weekly classes have three parts:

PURPOSEFUL PLAY FOR CHILDREN The remaining portion of the class is designed for children to learn through play with their peers. All children benefit from guidance of a licensed early childhood teacher. The goal is to help children develop a healthy self-concept and a love for learning. In several ECFE classes, parents and children remain together for the entire class time. Look for the “NS” (Non separating) next to the class on the schedule below. All other classes have a separating format including a parent component. CONNECTING WITH OTHERS While children are learning with their teachers, parents join together in an informal group setting for an informal group discussion on family topics; they share ideas, learn more about their child’s development and benefit from feeling connected to other parents with similar issues.
