The Barrington Public Schools Inclusion Preschool Program has been offered at Primrose Hill School since 1996. The program is designed to provide a high-quality early childhood experience for preschool children. 

Certified teachers, teacher assistants, and therapists work with children with, and without disabilities, to provide a typical preschool experience, while addressing each individual’s needs.

The Primrose Hill Preschool Program, located at  60 Middle Highway, is currently offering 2 morning sessions, and 2 afternoon sessions. Each session runs for 2.5 hours, 5 days a week. Morning sessions include 3-year-olds and afternoon sessions include 4-year-olds.

The morning sessions will run from 7:55 – 10:25. The afternoon sessions will run from 11:45 – 2:15.

Children applying as community peers must be:

  • Barrington residents
  • At least 3.0 years old by August 27, 2021
  • Screened by our Child Outreach program (see screening link below) prior to the first day of school.
  • Toilet trained before the start of the school year

We are no longer accepting applications for the 2021-2022 academic year. 

Due to limited space, and regulations of class size, all applications will be entered in a lottery, and randomly pulled on Friday, March 26, 2021. Lottery results will be e-mailed by Wednesday, March 31, 2021. 

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 a $200.00 deposit by April 16, 2021, in order to secure their child’s seat in the class. The deposit will be applied to the required annual tuition of $1,800.00 ($10.00 per day). The remaining balance will be paid in two installments of $800.00 each due in/by July 2021 and January 2022.  The District's policy is to not issue refunds after classes have started.
