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 February our classes will be celebrating Valentine’s Day by sharing cards with classmates and making cards for family. The children will be encouraged to share stories of those they love. The 3 year-old class will have a Pajama Day, bringing their favorite books to class to share with classmates. The special color of the month will be pink. The 4 and 5 year-olds will be learning about bears and other animals that hibernate. They will be making a class quilt and learning about quails for the letter Q.
• No school on Monday, February 15 in honor of President’s Day.
