FREE Preschool Developmental Screenings for children birth to 5 years are available for county residents
Thursday, September 21st from 3:00-6:00 PM
Friday, September 22nd from 9:00-2:00 PM
Goochland County Public Schools and Goochland-Powhatan Community Services Parent Infant Education Program partner every year to offer developmental screenings for Goochland County residents. On these dates, families can bring their children to our facility to find out more about their children’s development and school readiness. Our screening staff includes preschool teachers with specialized developmental training; speech-language pathologists for screening speech-language skills and hearing; and other specialists who assist with different aspects of the screenings. Vision and hearing screenings are available on the Child Check dates, but not available for appointments on later dates.
If families are unable to attend these dates, they are encouraged to schedule an appointment for another date. Although we prefer parents to contact us, referrals for screenings can be made by anyone with some knowledge of the child (family members, preschool teachers, doctors, etc.).
