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.
Our classes are looking forward to outside play during the month of April and all 4 of our classes will continue to celebrate Spring with song, dance and art. The 3 year-olds will have blue as their special color for the month of April. They will be learning about themselves, their families and their senses. The 5 year-old class will look at the letters K, R, U and X. The
4/5 year-old class will be working on a display entitled “April Showers Bring May Flowers”. They will also be doing activities
and art projects centered around 2 favorite books, Harold and the Purple Crayon and Max's Dragon Shirt.
During the month of May we will be busy preparing for our Mayfest celebration on Sunday, May 17! Our preschool families
are invited to have ice cream and cake or pie and the children can play games such as Fishing for Prizes or get their faces painted. Each class will perform songs during the course of the afternoon. The 3-year old class will have purple as their
color of the month and they will make flower pedal catchers and May Day baskets. The children who will be entering kindergartenin the fall will visit Mrs. Douglas’s class at Millikin and both 4 and 5-year old classes will visit the farm of
Dirk and Megan Wildemuth. Our last day of school will be May 22.
