Early Childhood Application and Screening

The Early Childhood Program offered at Baldwin Elementary School is designed to meet the needs of all three and four year olds.  There is one all day class for qualifying 4 year olds (limited to 20 students); all other Early Childhood Program classes are half day.  There is no enrollment fee for this program; milk and/or transportation fees may be applicable.  Spots are reserved in the order the completed applications are received with priority given to child qualifying for an IEP and at-risk students.  All students must participate in a developmental screening before enrolling.  
 
Please complete the Early Childhood Screening Application below along with the two questionnaires linked in Section 4 of the application to apply.
 
From September to April, applications are reviewed within 2-3 weeks of the time you apply. Once reviewed, you will be sent an additional email link from a program called SignUpGenius, that prompts you to select a screening appointment time held on the first Friday of each month (i.e. 09/03/2021 and 10/01/2021). 
 
If you have submitted the application available below, and have NOT received a SignUpGenius link after two weeks of the submission date, please call 785-594-2444. A maximum of 12-15 appointments are available, and slots are filled on a first-come first serve basis. Pending on the time of your application you may not have an appointment until the following month.
