The Sharon Public Schools Early Childhood Team offers preschool screening for Sharon residents who are three to five years of age. This cost-free screening takes place at The Children’s Center at Sharon Middle School on designated Thursday mornings throughout the school year.
Preschool screening is used as a first step in identifying children that may need special education services before kindergarten. Children are screened in the following areas of development: speech and language, fine motor/gross motor, concepts. Preschool screening is not a kindergarten readiness screening and should not be used to determine if a child is “ready” for kindergarten.
Parents may call Amy Steinberg at 781-784-1594 to make an appointment or ask questions about the screening process.
Preschool Screening dates are currently scheduled for October 18, 2018; January 10, 2019; March 7, 2019; and April 4, 2019.
