**You must register to attend**

Stars of the Future is a FREE preschool screening program for children ages 3-31/2, living in South East Manitoba. It is a onetime appointment to find out how your child is doing in the areas of speech and language, hearing, growth and development.  Children that were born between January 1 and June 30, 2014 are invited to attend.

The appointment is about one hour long. When you arrive, the coordinator will check you in. Your child will be given a sticker sheet to take to each room where they will receive a sticker when they have completed the activities.    You may have a short wait until the appointments from the previous hour are completed.  There will be books for you and your child to read together while you wait.  You and your child will then go to four different stations and see the following:  a public health nurse; a speech language pathologist; an occupational therapist; and a parent led large motor activity station. At the end or depending on the wait for a clinician, your child will receive a small snack of Teddy grahams and apple juice.   Questions and concerns about your child’s development may be addressed during the appointment.  This appointment may lead to a referral for further assessment.

To book this FREE appointment for your child in the community of your choice, please call  204-346-6136.  Appointments are booking up quickly, so we encourage you to book your appointment early!    If you want to book an appointment with a German translator, please call Gertrud at 204-346-6128.
