Developmental Screening

ELCPBC's Developmental Screening department administers the age-appropriate developmental screenings for each child through our contracted child care providers on a semi-annual basis. Providers are then responsible for communicating to parents/guardians in writing, the results of each screening conducted. We believe that by identifying any developmental delays early on... parents and child care providers can work together to track a child’s progress and ensure any additional services are provided if necessary.

The School Readiness program requires that all children receiving School Readiness funds ranging in age from birth to five years-old be screened for their growth and development. Because your child’s first five years of life are crucial for his/her development, we want to help provide the best start for your child.

If a concern exists, parents/guardians are given the opportunity to have their child receive a more in-depth, FREE, comprehensive evaluation through a Healthy Beginnings referral to our community partner, HomeSafe. For more information about Healthy Beginnings Referrals and/or other local community resources relating to Special Needs, visit our Early Intervention and Inclusion Department page.
