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.
On Monday, October 6, First Lutheran Preschool will hold its annual Open House from 6:30-8 p.m. Our students and their families are invited to come and visit with the teachers and see the children’s art work! During the month of October all
four preschool classes will be learning about Autumn. We will continue to go outside and enjoy our playground and they
will observe and harvest the pumpkins and gourds whose vines are climbing the fence. For Halloween, all of the classes will wear costumes and share treats. The 3 year-olds will focus on the color orange and on themes of Fall, leaves and pumpkins. The 4 & 5-year old classes will visit the Geneseo Fire Station, learning about fire safety. They will also continue focusing on letters with activities, songs and finger plays.
