What We Do

Community Child Cares Solutions offers free developmental screening for children birth to 5 years old. The Screening is a quick check of a child’s developmental milestones. The screening takes a snapshot of the child’s current skills and helps accurately identify children who may be at risk for delays - the screening does not give a diagnosis.  Regular screening provides a fast and helpful look at how the child is doing in important areas like communication, social skills, motor skills, and problem-solving skills.


Screening can identify the child’s strengths, uncover new milestones to celebrate, and reveal any areas where the child may need support. It helps you understand the child’s development and know what to look for next. And it helps you work with parents and caregiver’s to plan next steps when it makes the most difference—the child’s critical first years of life.


If there is a need for developmental screenings within your child care center or family child care business, please contact us at
