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.
In the month of October the preschool students will be celebrating Autumn with art projects, songs and books. We will
be having our annual Open House on Monday evening, October 3 from 6:30 until 8 p.m. During the week of October 10,
Fire Safety Week, our students will be learning about fire safety and the 4/5 year-olds will visit the Geneseo Fire Station.
The 3 year-olds will be focusing on the color orange and pumpkins. The 4/5 year olds will also focus on the alphabet...F, L,
H for Fall, leaves and Halloween. We will also be observing caterpillars as they spin their cocoons and turn into butterflies.
The children will wear their Halloween costumes to school to celebrate Halloween.
