For over 30 years, the Barrington Park District Preschool has been built on the understanding that your children’s happiness and growth are very important. We believe children learn best in an environment rich in experiences that focus on language development, academic centers, social/emotional development, artistic expression and fine/gross motor development. Each preschool day has a balanced schedule designed to address all developmental domains important to your child’s growth and development. We encourage children to socialize, interact cooperatively and gain independence so they can reach their full potential.

A Letter from the Director

I would like to take this opportunity to give a big “shout out” to all our staff who worked so hard this past summer! We were fortunate to hire 134 seasonal staff to work in our camps, parks, programs and at the pool. Many of our staff members took on extra hours/shifts and rallied to support each other when needed.

I would like to extend my deepest gratitude and thanks to:

The lifeguards, slide attendants, swim instructors and pool desk attendants who worked extra shifts and attended hours of training. They kept everyone in and around the pool safe during the extreme heat and crowded times.

All of our camp staff and counselors who created a fun and positive experience for each and every camper.

Our parks crew who worked tirelessly while being short staffed, making sure our parks and facilities were ready for the season.

The fitness team who continue to offer a variety of fitness programs and memberships to help keep both our mind and bodies fit.

Our instructors who provided participants with new, creative and fun activities helping to cultivate an environment of growth and learning.

The front desk staff who processed thousands of registrations and assisted patrons with their questions. They always provide a friendly entrance with a welcoming smile and hello!

Without the staff that work at Barrington Park District, whether its full time, part time or seasonal, we could not provide the quality of life experiences that have been created and make the memories that will hopefully last a lifetime!
