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.
During the month of May our classes will continue to celebrate spring with activities and art projects. We will be preparing Mother’s Day gifts. The 3 year-old class will have purple as their color of the month. They also will be planting ornamental squash seeds on the church playground. The 4 & 5 year-olds will enjoy a puppet show put on by the Hammond Henry Hospital Auxiliary. They will being doing some literature based activities using some favorite books such as Pete’s a Pizza
and Max’s Dragon Shirt. They will also be looking at the letters M and Y. The 4 & 5 years-olds will be taking field trips to LaRoma pizza, the post office and the dentist’s office. Our last day of school will be Friday, May 27.
