2021-2022 Preschool Screenings

Prairie Rose Public Schools is now booking preschool screenings for children who are 3 years of age as of December 31, 2021. 

As part of the booking process, parents will be asked to complete a short questionnaire and then be taken to our online booking appointment software with a list of locations and available appointment times. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, all appointments will be booked in 30 minute intervals to allow for sanitization between appointments.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why book an appointment?

Prairie Rose School Division offers preschool speech and language screenings around the district to provide parents, educators and health care professionals with valuable information about a child’s development. The screening process enables Prairie Rose to arrange early intervention (programming and support) for children with developmental delays. Screenings are not an assessment and therefore will only be used to identify children who may require further assessment. Children entering a JK/K program are encouraged to be screened prior to attending the program, unless determined otherwise.

Who conducts the assessments?

Trained individuals/professionals will work with the child (ages 2 to 5) and his/her parent(s) to answer a series of questions. The parent stays with the child at all times.

How do the appointments work?

The child may be asked to demonstrate a skill by the parent or the specialist.

Where do the appointments take place?

Screenings will take place at schools in various communities around our region. If unable to attend the screening in one community or if screenings are not being offered at a school, we recommend that parents arrange to attend screenings at the most convenient location. You may attend a screening at any of the following locations:

  • Wednesday, April 14: Oyen and Seven Persons
  • Friday, April 16: Ralston and Irvine
  • Monday, April 19: Bow Island
  • Tuesday, April 20: Dunmore
