We welcome all Barrington community 3 and 4-year-olds to apply to our preschool. Unfortunately, due to limited space, and regulations of class size, all applications are entered in a lottery and randomly pulled. Lottery results are then e-mailed to applicants.

Children applying as community peers must be:

  • Barrington residents and must be residing in Barrington at the time of the lottery

  • At age by August 28, 2022

  • Screened by our Child Outreach program prior to the first day of school.

  • Toilet trained before the start of the school year

If the name of a child chosen is from multiple births (twins/triplets), the effort will be made to allow both/all children to enter the classroom, if space allows.

All applicants not chosen will be notified by e-mail and will be added to a waitlist. If a position becomes available, an application will be pulled at random from this list and parents will be notified.

Once accepted into the program, parents must register their child, and pay the deposit, in order to secure their child’s seat in the class. The deposit will be applied to the required annual tuition.

The District's policy is to not issue refunds after classes have started.

Please do not submit multiple applications for the same student.  All duplicate applications will be removed from the lottery.
