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 hope you all had a wonderful fall. We loved seeing you in our parks and participating in our programs! There are a lot of questions regarding when the referendum project will start. Please see page 5 for information. We are ready to go to the Village with our designs to obtain a permit. This will take approximately 5 months. I would like to point out that the current pool, skate park and pickleball courts will be open next summer. They will officially CLOSE on Sunday, August 11, 2024 and construction will begin shortly after. Be sure to follow our social media pages and website for updates.

We are excited to bring you new programming. There is truly something for everyone and we can’t wait to see you in class!
