Norwood Public Schools Preschool Screening:

The Norwood Public Schools offers free preschool screenings for Norwood residents between 3 and 5 years of age. The screenings take place at the Little Mustangs Preschool Academy .

The screening process is designed as a first step in identifying children that may need special education services in the preschool years. Children are screened in the following areas of development: speech and language, pre-academic concepts, fine/gross motor, and social development. Preschool screening is not a kindergarten readiness screening and should not be used to determine if a child is “ready” for kindergarten.

The Willett Early Childhood Center also offers specific screening days in the spring for children who will be entering kindergarten the following year. This is not a readiness screening and should not be used to determine if a child is “ready” for kindergarten.

Parents who are concerned about their child’s development may contact the Early Childhood Team Chair, Emily Caille, at 781-440-5802 x 3100 or by emailing
