Frequently Asked Questions
Please read through the list of our most frequently asked questions regarding the academy. If you do not find answers to your questions, please call our office: 615-953-3034
Which accreditations does the academy maintain?
How can I find out how my child is doing?
Parents may call or email us at any time. Parents may also request a parent-teacher meeting. We have an open door policy so that parents may drop in at any time. But please stop by the office so that we can make sure the visit is not disruptive to the classrooms.
How is parent-teacher communication conducted?
Teachers and Administrators are always available to speak with parents about any concern, and a parent may request a meeting with their child’s teachers at any time. Dropping off or picking up can be a busy time for staff. We encourage you to make an appointment so that undivided attention may be given to you. Teachers will communicate regularly with parents about their child’s progress and milestones being reached. Additionally, each child is sent home with a form daily that communicates how the child enjoyed school, as well as the activities of the child’s day. Each year in the spring and fall, teachers evaluate their students’ progress through assessments which accompany parent-teacher conferences.
How can I be involved in my child's school experience?
We gladly welcome parents to join us for special celebrations, birthdays, and presentations. Additionally, parents may volunteer in their child’s classroom or simply stop by to visit! A teacher may also ask for parent volunteers to help with a particular activity. If you would like to participate, you may always ask the teachers for opportunities.
Do you offer part-time schedules?
We do not currently offer part-time or half-day options.
My child does not speak English well. How do you work with children who are not native English speakers?
It is not unusual for us to have children start with us who do not speak English. Our caring teachers are adept at making each child feel welcome. Included in all activities, parents will notice a burst of language early on. Children learn languages quickly, and our teachers are proficient in encouraging children to gradually begin to express themselves confidently.
Is there a normal nap routine?
Children in our Nursery and Early Childhood programs nap every day.
Nap time is from 12:30 to 2:30 PM for Pre-K, and 12:00 to 2:00 PM for Preschool. If your child has outgrown the need for a daily nap, he or she will be required to rest quietly on their mat while the rest of the children sleep.
Are you affiliated with any religion?
Yes. Our school was founded on Biblical principles and our curriculum is the Abeka Christian curriculum. However, we do not require that our children or parents are Christian to attend.
Will my child be prepared for primary school after attending Barrington Christian Academy?
Graduates of Barrington Christian Academy’s PreK class move on to a variety of public and private schools. We receive very positive feedback from both parents and teachers that our graduates excel when starting primary school, and are at a significant advantage academically, socially, and developmentally.
Many of our students go on to pass rigorous entrance assessments into prestigious private schools in the area.
