Salt Creek School District 48 conducts a free developmental screening of preschool-aged children (ages 3 to 5, not yet enrolled in kindergarten). This screening is open to all preschool-aged students who live in District boundaries, regardless of future preschool plans. Screenings are conducted at Salt Creek Primary School, 980 S. Riverside Dr. in Elmhurst. Appointments are necessary and can be made by calling the school’s office at 630-832-6122.
Screening appointments are available for August 30th, September 27, November 1, January 10, March 13, and May 22.
The screening process helps identify how your son/daughter is currently developing and is also the first step in registering your son/daughter in our preschool program. Assessed areas include: speech and language, large and small muscle groups and social/emotional development. It is conducted by professional school staff in a variety of pleasant playroom situations and takes about one hour to complete.
If you have any questions regarding screening for children under 3 years old, please contact Child & Family Connections at 331-481-4263.
