Columbia Public Schools offers free developmental screening for children ages three to five (non-kindergarten). This screening is the first step to see if a child would qualify for any preschool services offered by Columbia Public Schools. Screening is a developmental check-up, similar to the physical check-up a child has with a doctor. The purpose is to assure that each child is developing as expected for their age level. Screening checks key areas of development such as:
Speech and language
Vision and hearing
