La Grange School District 105, which serves south La Grange, Hodgkins and Countryside, will host a preschool screening for children ages 3 to 5 from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. Aug. 21 at the Hodgkins Park District, 8997 Lyons St., Hodgkins.
The screening takes about one hour and requires an appointment. Parents must schedule a time to be screened by calling 708-482-2760.
A team of professionals from the district will assess each child’s development in the areas of large and fine motor skills, pre-academic readiness, speech/language, vision and hearing. The screening will help identify children who may qualify for one of the free district preschool programs, or those who would benefit from additional services before entering kindergarten.
Children currently enrolled in a district Preschool Program (ECE, Early Learning or Preschool for All) do not need to be screened.
