For more than 35 years, First Lutheran Preschool has served the greater Geneseo community by providing enriching classes for 3, 4 and 5 year-olds. Our mission is to offer a safe and nurturing atmosphere where the child's first school experience is positive and enjoyable. Our curriculum conforms
to the goals and preschool standards put out by the Illinois State Board
of Education and we are certified by the State of Illinois.

Our program curriculum includes free play, readiness, language arts, creative art, cooking, music, games, rhythms, and field trips. Our classrooms are sunny, cheerful places where creativity and exploration is foremost. Every effort is made to make the preschool situation a happy, comfortable place for your child to grow physically, socially, intellectually and emotionally.

All of our classes will continue to celebrate Spring with projects, songs and books. We will continue to enjoy the new playground and prepare for our Mayfest. The special color for May will be purple for our 3-year old classes. To celebrate
all of the colors from the school year, they will use rainbows as a theme in projects, songs and dance. The 4 & 5-year old class will use some of their favorite books to base projects and activities on. Harold and the Purple Crayon and Max’s Dragon Shirt are two of these books. They will be putting together Spring Collages and working on gifts for Mother’s Day. They will also take a trip to the Geneseo Post Office. The 5-year old class will take a field trip to the veterinarian’s office and work on May baskets and Mother’s Day gifts and cards. First Lutheran Preschool students who will be entering Kindergarten in the
fall will be visiting Mrs. Douglas’s class on Friday, May 9 at Millikin at 1 p.m.
