EARLY CHILDHOOD SCREENING SET FOR DISTRICT 105
School District 105, which serves the south LaGrange, Hodgkins, and Countryside communities, will be hosting a preschool screening for children ages 3 -5 years old on Tuesday, May 19th from 8:30 am-1:00 pm, at the Hodgkins Park District in 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 childs 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 prior to entering Kindergarten.

Children who are currently enrolled in a District Preschool program (ECE, Head Start, Early Learning or Preschool for All) do not need to be screened.If you know of a child in the District 105 area who would benefit from these services, please share this information with their family.
