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.

Spring is in the air! During the month of April, the preschoolers will continue to focus on spring and Easter. The 3–year olds will discover spring in the outdoor world as they walk around our neighborhood and spend time playing outside. Blue will be their special color and they will continue learning about their five senses. The 4-year olds will end their journey through the alphabet with the letter Z. They will also be working on a classroom display “April Showers Bring May Flowers.” The 5-year olds will be learning about the letter R by running relay races. Near the end of the month they will make May baskets!
