About Us

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. We share your desire to provide the best possible start for your child. We follow the Illinois Early Learning Standards and the State of Illinois DCFS guidelines.
