Preschool screenings announced

GRANVILLE — The LaSalle/Putnam County Educational Alliance for Special Education Cooperative (LEASE) and the Putnam County School District will offer preschool screenings on Thursday, April 25, and Friday, April 26.

The screenings will be from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the PC Primary School in Granville. A parent must accompany their child to the screening.

Children who will be 3 years old on or before April 25 are eligible for screening for fall enrollment. The screening will cover small and large muscle development, speech, language, hearing, vision, cognition and social skills. Parents who have other developmental concerns about their child can discuss those during the parent interview. Results from the screening will be used to determine eligibility for the early childhood program at the primary school. Students not eligible will be placed on a waiting list until after the August screening.

The preschool program (Preschool for All) is a state-funded grant program from the Illinois Board of Education and all rules and regulations are followed for the grant support. The program offers developmentally appropriate experiences for young children to strengthen their skills for success later on in school. It includes hands-on activities presented in a positive and encouraging learning environment.

Parents interested in making an appointment for the preschool screening can call the school at 815-882-2800, option 1.
