Our Infant Program provides your child the kind of individualized care and attention that makes him or her feel special. The overall development of every infant is enhanced with our special combination of Pinnacle and Creative Curriculum.

The Toddler Program at Barrington Academy continues the emotional, educational and developmentally appropriate environment created during the infant stage of care. Pinnacle and Creative Curriculums are steadily introduced providing structure and hands-on activities that allow children to explore their individual interests.
Our Two Year Old Program is special. The students have had a head start with potty training in Toddler care and are usually talking and exploring the world around them through an experienced eye. Pinnacle curriculum takes special care to design activities that help each child gain confidence in learning to do things individually. Creative Curriculum builds on their interests and motor skills.
Private Pre K Program ( Age group 3-5 years )
The Pre-school children at this stage of development need a very well defined structured program with loads of fun and play. We use Pinnacle curriculum combined with Creative Curriculum for this age group to provide children with an array of individual, small and large group activities. Each week children will explore a theme through center time and daily enrichment activities to match with the curriculum theme. Our classroom displays reflect the changes made as per the current theme.
The State of Georgia has generously funded this phenomenal program so there is literally no expense to the family of the Georgia Lottery Pre-K Student’s family. The curriculum encourages child initiated activities with a great deal of hands-on learning. There are also teacher initiated activities to fully balance the learning process. The Georgia Lottery Pre-K Program prepares the students for future success in school as they advance in age. At Barrington our Georgia Pre K program strives to be excellent in every area as stipulated by the State.
