Our August screening will only be for children that have just recently moved into the Meridian district. If you have a child age 0-3, they can be screened through Bright Start this month! See info below for details...

Bright Start will hold a Birth to 3 screening on Thursday, March 30 and Friday, March 31.

This service will be held at the same time as our preschool screening at the Pleasant View Community Building (the old school) in Blue Mound. Parents will remain with their child as trained screeners evaluate developmental progress. The process will take about 30 minutes. You may set up an appointment starting March 13th by calling 692-2535, ext. 244. You can call this number anytime between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m.
Little Hawks will be hosting a Youth Sports Night for parents with children age 0-PreK. RSVP required so we can plan for enough food.
