Preschool Screening for 3-4 year olds

The Newton Public Schools and the Department of Public Health are providing a preschool screening for children born between September 1, 2014 and April 26, 2016. The purpose of the screening is to identify children who may require further evaluations to determine eligibility for special education services. Testing will be done for vision, speech and language, motor skills and general development. This is a free and optional service for Newton residents only.


This screening is NOT for children entering kindergarten in September 2019.  Kindergarten bound students are screened at their local schools in Spring 2019. Please see our Kindergarten Registration page for more information.


The screening will be held on April 26, 2019 at the Newton Early Childhood Program (150 Jackson Road.) If you are interested in having your child screened, please call 617-559-6050 to schedule an appointment.
