    infant through age five screening

    On Monday, July 27th from 8:40 AM to 1:20 PM, Sumner County Educational Services will offer free developmental screenings to children birth through five years of age. If you are interested in how your child is growing and developing, please call the School Office at 620-892-5215 X2 to schedule an appointment. Parents, there are 5 stations that your child will go through, so please plan to spend at least an hour at the screening. If your child is currently enrolled in South Haven’s preschool, or is on an IFSP/IEP it is not necessary to have him/her screened. If you have any questions or concerns, please talk with your child’s teacher. 

    This is a cooperative effort among Sumner County Educational Service Interlocal, Futures Unlimited, and USD 509.
