Community CHILD FIND Events Offer FREE Screening, Program Enrollment Information, Resources and More
It's almost Spring and time for Community Child Find events to be scheduled in communities throughout southern Illinois. The purpose of these events is to offer ALL families with children ages 0-5 access to information about available early childhood programs and other resources in their community. Guidance on eligibility criteria for state funded PreK, Head Start and Child Care programs will be provided. FREE developmental screening is provided to children of all ages and in some locations vision, hearing and dental screening will be provided as well. Developmental screening provides parents with a great way to "check in" on their child's development. In addition results may be used to determine eligibility for PreK or other state supported programs.
A complete listing by date (and county) is available in the events section of our website, registration and individual events listed on the calendar and reminders will be posted on Facebook. Don't miss this important event in your community!
