child care and development in Stockbridge, Georgia
Programs at Barrington Academy - School Age Programs

After a full and productive day at school, the children are ready for relaxation and fun. The after school experience is a happy, healthy, and engaging one at Barrington Academy. The experiences and curriculum that guide this program are especially tuned to the developmental needs of the six-twelve year old child. Children have the opportunity to participate in activities that challenge their creativity and provide a social and recreational outlet framed in thematic learning units complete with homework support and character education emphasis. The curriculum provides project based learning ideas which have meaning to the students and are engaging and creative. Cooperative play is encouraged through games, exploring sports, and group arts & crafts projects.

Children are provided a healthy snack and plenty of open space to run, jump, and climb every day (weather permitting). Television, Computer, and Game Console choices are available on a limited basis and vary per location (request specifics at tour).

Virtual Tour of Barrington Academy


"Hello I am the mother of Michael and Stephanie Sell. We moved to the Atlanta area in July of 2010 and enrolled the twins at Barrington Academy that month. Being Military we have to move often so sadly they were not able to finish the full year at Barrington. We were transferred to Syracuse, New York just this April. When we went to the local Elementary school to begin enrollment for the twins to begin Kindergarten this coming up fall. The principal suggested they go ahead and test the twins to find out what level they were on, they passed with flying colors. They could write the ABC's, upper and lower case. Count to 100 and count by 10's, add and subtract numbers below 10, and knew sounds of the letters,rhymes, shapes and answered any question they were asked they were ahead of the kindergarden class by strides here in Syracuse, NY. We were told they would be able to go right into first grad this August with no issues at all. We would like to give a big thank to teachers at Barrington. They gave special love, attention and understanding to our twins and helped them to over archive to this level. We are very happy and miss you all."
