Early childhood screening
We do not require your child be screened before they enroll in Brooklyn Park Nature Preschool. Once your child is enrolled in Brooklyn Park Nature Preschool, we partner with Osseo Area Schools to provide onsite screening, if you live in the Osseo School District. Please ask your teacher for more information.
Early childhood screening is required by the State of Minnesota and must be completed before starting kindergarten. It is recommended that a child be screened at age three so any potential problems can be found early.
