Welcome to First Lutheran Preschool & Kindergarten!

First Lutheran Preschool & Kindergarten provides high quality, play based, faith filled, early childhood opportunities for children to grow and thrive. Our goal is to support children ages 2 to 6 years in feeling comfortable, confident and joyful at school through play, exploration, creativity and connection with their peers and teachers. We are a ministry of First Lutheran Church of Richmond Beach and have served this community for the past 48 years.

We are now enrolling for the 2020-21 school year. In these difficult times, we are planning for this school year with every consideration taken for the health and safety of our students, families and staff. For more information or to schedule a virtual tour, please email preschool@flrb.org. Thank you for considering First Lutheran Preschool & Kindergarten as a partner in your child’s early education.

“Play is the highest form of research.”

Albert Einstein

Research shows that play is the most effective way for children to learn. 

When we play together at our school, we are learning:

Social Skills to help us empathize, share and build friendships

How to recognize and regulate our emotions

Gross Motor Skills to help us balance and feel in control of our bodies

Creative Expression and feeling proud of our effort

How to work together to solve problems

Fine Motor Skills to strengthen our hands and prepare us for writing

Growth Mindset and that we grow every time we try

Literacy Skills to help us love reading and recognize familiar letters/words

Math Skills such as counting and sorting

How to explore, experiment and construct with curiosity in our world

That God’s love is there for all of us

At FLRB Preschool & Kindergarten, we utilize the play-based approach outlined in The Creative Curriculum for Preschool by Dodge, Colker and Heroman. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have about this and the other curriculum we use.

“Play gives children the chance to practice what they are learning.”
