For more than 25 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.
During the month of March we will begin to talk about the signs of spring. Some of our activities, crafts and books will
reflect this theme. The classes will also enjoy a wee bit o’ fun celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, with lots of Shamrocks and leprechauns. Yellow will be the special color of the month for the 3-year-old classes. They will also be learning about their
five senses...seeing, smelling, feeling, hearing and tasting. The 4-year-old class will be busy making kites and learning about the letters, V, W, X and Y. Activities will include playing the xylophones, doing experiments with water and painting with the color yellow. The 5-year olds will have a rodeo round-up complete with a “campfire” meal and games. They will also have a rootin’ tootin’ good time square dancing!
• Parent/Teacher Conferences are scheduled for March 3-5.
