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 December, First Lutheran Preschool students will be preparing for Christmas Programs that will be held on the 21st and 22nd. The children will also be making decorations for our classroom and making cards and gifts for their families. The 3 year-old class will have green as their special color of the month. They also will be baking cookies. The 4-5 year-old classes will be learning about Christmas customs from around the world. They also will be making a class handprint Christmas tree and learning about the letters K, L, M and C.
