  • Daycare Home Screening

    The Early Childhood Coordinator for the Princeton School District would love to collaborate with you. Home Daycares are a huge part of our young learners in our community. This is to set up a screening date at your site during your daycare hours. I want to help all families in our community be successful on their path to their future schooling. One barrier I can remove is making it easier to access screening by coming to where their children are during the day. Then families don't have to take off work if they don't want to or can't etc. We could screen any family that fills out paperwork for their children aged 3 by the screening date and up to all kids not in Kindergarten yet. Parents will get a phone call the next day to set up a time they are available to talk about the screening results. Please call 763-389-6197 or email stefanie.middendorf@isd477.org to set up a date for the screening.
