Renton School District’s Child Find provides free developmental screenings for children aged 3-5 years old who reside within the Renton School District boundaries. This screenings, at Meadow Crest Early Learning Center, helps identify possible delays in speech & language, motor, cognitive/learning, self-help or social-emotional development in preschool children.
