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.
First Lutheran Preschool will be welcoming 43 three, four and five year-old students starting Tuesday, September 8! We will also be welcoming the parents with orientation meetings the first part of that week.
During September our students will be getting to know their classmates and teachers and together we will be establishing our routines. The themes of apples and Autumn will be used by all of the classes. We will also be watching and learning about the cycle of caterpillars spinning cocoons and turning into butterflies; in our classroom we will have live caterpillars in our butterfly pavilion where we will watch this happen.
The 3 year-olds will focus on the color red and they will be weighed and measured. The 4 & 5-year old morning class will begin a journey through the alphabet, starting with A the first week of September with B, C, and D the following weeks. They will be doing art using buttons and will be busy making collages. The 4 & 5-year old afternoon class will learn about the letter N by making noises and having a pizza party for the letter P! All 4 & 5’s will be doing art and various projects that will correspond with their letter of the week.
