Kindergarten Information

  • For children who turn five-years-old on or before Sept. 1, Barrington 220 offers Standard Half-Day Kindergarten using a half-day model. Students will be fully educated according to Barrington 220's traditional curriculum and programming. This model prepares children for first grade and beyond. Parents have the option to state their preference for morning or afternoon kindergarten. Requests are granted upon space and availability.

    Morning kindergarten sections run from 8-10:40 a.m. and afternoon sections take place from 12:10-2:40 p.m. Wednesday is an early release day in Barrington 220 where students are dismissed approximately 30 minutes early in the afternoon section only. Dismissal on Wednesdays will take place at 2:10 p.m. Click here to watch an informational video about Standard Half-Day Kindergarten.
