Enterovirus-D68 Information for Parents

Enteroviruses are very common viruses, and fall is a common time for enterovirus to cause respiratory illness. Enterovirus D68 infections are less common than infections with other enteroviruses. Seven cases of enterovirus D68 have been identified in New Hampshire so far, but and there are cases in most U.S. states.

Infants, children, and teenagers are more likely than adults to get infected with enteroviruses and become sick. Symptoms can include a runny nose, sore throat, cough, wheezing, rash and fever. For more information, click here.

Monthly Tuition:   $245.00  

Our Staff:  Two teachers staff our program. Their qualifications exceed New Hampshire’s licensing requirements.  Our classroom assistants provide a high adult to child ratio.

Professionals in the fields of speech and language development, occupational therapy, physical therapy, child development, and behavior are also part of our program.  They each play a vital role in our program development and the implementation of those programs for all our children.


 The Barrington School District is responsible for identifying those children, three to five years old who may require special education services.  Early identification is critical.  Parents who have concerns about their child’s development in the areas of speech and language, vision, hearing, motor coordination, social/emotional growth or learning disabilities should contact the Child Find Coordinator for further information or to set up a preschool screening.
