Preschool Screening/Early Childhood Services

  • Early childhood services are provided for children ages 3 to 5 years of age. Screenings are conducted periodically, and findings from the screenings determine entrance into District preschool programs or the need for further evaluation.  Early childhood professionals and related services personnel provide specialized educational services to children with disabilities in a variety of settings such as early childhood, preschool and pre-kindergarten/Preschool for All classrooms to meet their developmental learning needs.  The District’s programs are for children who are academically or developmentally at-risk.  In order to be eligible for screening, children must live within Woodland District 50 attendance boundaries and be at least 3 years of age at the time of screening.  For children who are 5 years of age, their date of birth must be after September 1.  Children who receive early intervention services prior to their third birthday and who are found eligible for an IEP and whose birthday falls between May 1 and August 31 may continue to receive early intervention services until the beginning of the school year following their third birthday.

    Please contact Andrea Rouse, Early Childhood Supervisor, for additional information on programs.
