    Birth to 5 screening

    On Friday, March 20th, 2020 from 8:40 a.m. - 11:20 a.m., Sumner County Educational Services and Futures Unlimited, Inc. will offer free developmental screening to children birth through 5 years of age. If you are interested in how your child is growing and developing, please call the school office at 620-892-5212 (ext 2) 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 Services Interlocal District #619, Futures Unlimited, Inc. and USD #509.
