Preschool Community Screening

The DeKalb Community Unit School District 428 along with 4-C is offering Birth to Preschool Screening.

This is a free service offered to children Birth to Three years old and Preschoolers, ages 3-5, in the DeKalb, Cortland, and Malta communities. Parents are urged to take part in this service.

Your child changes rapidly through the years and an annual check-up of his/her educational progress is strongly recommended. This service is just one way of finding preschoolers who may need extra help before the start of kindergarten.
