Garfield Early Childhood Center and kindergarten students’ parents will be working with their children on a screening for Ages and Stages.  Parents will be receiving information from their Garfield preschool or kindergarten teacher about the upcoming screening process.  Parents will complete the screening at home on a digital device.  If a family cannot complete the screening digitally they will receive a paper copy of the screener to fill out.

Parents will answer a questionnaire about things their child can and cannot currently perform. The form includes questions about their child’s communication, gross motor, fine motor, problem solving, and personal-social skills.  The Ages and Stages will provide a developmental snapshot approach to look at kindergarten readiness for students.

Parents will also receive information regarding academic expectations and will receive information on helping their child in their learning development at home.

For more information about the screening call your child’s school or go to
