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

On behalf of the Park Board of Commissioners and Staff, we want to thank our Barrington Park District taxpayers for their overwhelming support on the April 4th election. This referendum project will be an incredible addition to the Park District and will provide many new opportunities. Construction is anticipated to begin August, 2024. The Park District approval process with the Village of Barrington could begin as early as October, 2023 and be tentatively approved late February, 2024. We will continue to provide updates on the project on our website at www.barringtonparkdistrict.org.

The Barrington Park Fitness Center supports participants of ALL AGES in the pursuit of a healthy and fit lifestyle. This year we introduced our FitTeen Orientation. This program is designed specifically for teens ages 14 – 17 years old who wish to join our Fitness Center. The FitTeen Orientation is led by a Park District Certified Personal Trainer, where teens will learn about gym safety, Fitness Center Etiquette and Code of Conduct, how to use the machines, form, technique and special instruction for the free weight area. Safety and enjoyment for all of our fitness patrons is the driving force behind this unique program. We hope to help teens maintain a healthy mind and body as well as establish positive habits that can help prevent injury, disease, loss of mobility and mental decline during the aging process. Establishing these habits early sets the stage toward enjoying a rich quality of life as an adult. If you have a teen that is interested in joining our Fitness Center, please contact our Health & Fitness Manager, Dana Daniel, at ddaniel@barringtonparkdistrict.org.
