In addition, Kindergarten screenings will be held for those children who will be entering Kindergarten at Maple Grove School for the 2015-2016 school years. Illinois state law requires this screening for all children entering Kindergarten. Vision and hearing screenings will also be available for all children birth through 5 years of age.
Appointments may be scheduled by calling Joppa Maple Grove Elementary School at (618) 543-7434. No walk-ins will be accepted; appointments only.
A team of professional early childhood educators will be present to assist both parent and child through the screening process. This is a collaborative effort among Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and Speech therapist staff. The screening consists of game-like activities to assess development in the areas of cognitive, speech/language, and fine and gross motor skills. The screening process usually takes approximately 45-60 minutes to complete.
Joppa Maple Grove Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten staff will be available to provide information about the respective school programs. For Pre-K aged students, a letter will be mailed by the end of the school year notifying you if your child is selected for the Pre-K program and will list the items required for enrollment.
If you have any questions or concerns, please call Maple Grove Elementary School at 543-7434.
