Unfortunately, we are no longer accepting applications for the 2021-2022 academic year.

Please visit our website again in December 2021 to apply for the 2022-2023 academic year.


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 lottery

  • At least 3.0 years old by August 26, 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.
