MENDOTA - L.E.A.S.E. will hold preschool screenings for Mendota District 289 at First United Methodist Church, 100 E. Sixth St., Mendota on Friday, Jan. 28.

The screenings are for children who will be 3 or 4 years old by Feb. 1, 2022. L.E.A.S.E. will screen key developmental areas such as motor development, speech, language, vision, hearing and general readiness.

Due to Covid-19, only one parent/caregiver may bring the child. Parents and children must wear masks.

All children must be screened to be eligible for the Preschool for All Program.
