Bette Rae Thomas Recreation Center

Charlotte, NC 28208

MECK Pre-K is hosting a series of community-based, developmental screening events this summer! Our MECK Pre-K program central office team, along with some of our MECK Pre-K teachers, will be utilizing the Brigance Early Childhood Screens III tool to help us get to know the individualized developmental strengths and needs as they prepare to join our MECK Pre-K Program family!

Throughout the month of June, 2023, appointment schedules will be made available to incoming MECK Pre-K student families to schedule 30-minute screening slots with our MECK Pre-K staff members. This event will also include a community resource fair, a chance to meet our partnered therapy providers, kids’ activities and food!
