Pre-K & Kindergarten Screening Happening Soon!
By:  Anne Billington, MELC Principal

At McMillan Early Learning Center we are hosting our annual Pre-K and Kindergarten Screening. It will be held from May 22-24, 2023 in the Pre-K Commons area. The screening is for children who will be 3, 4, or 5 years of age by July 31, 2023.  Children who are currently students in our Pre-K program do not have to be re-screened.  We’ve had such an overwhelming response this year, all of our screening appointments have been filled.  

Part of our screening process includes an identification of speech concerns, hearing concerns, and behavioral concerns if applicable. Pre-K and Kindergarten readiness is assessed by utilizing the Speed-Dial assessment. We then take that information to help formulate the class lists. 

Please bring two forms of proof of residency, as well as your child’s shot records and birth certificate when you arrive for your appointment. We will have our district ELL specialist in attendance to assist with our Spanish speaking families. Allow at least 25-30 minutes for your visit. Our screening process is very kid friendly.  In fact, most of the children don’t even realize they’re being screened.   

We are always excited about Pre-K and Kindergarten screening because we are so eager to meet all of our new students. Please call McMillan Early Learning Center if you have any questions. Our office phone number is 573-581-5029.  We look forward to seeing our littlest DAWGS at screening!
