Welcome to First Lutheran Preschool!

At First Lutheran Preschool, we provide high quality, play-based, faith filled, early childhood education where children ages 2-5 can grow and thrive. We are a ministry of First Lutheran Church of Richmond Beach and are in our 49th year of service to this community.

We believe:

  • that children learn best through play
  • in creating a nurturing environment that fosters curiosity, creativity and connection
  • in joyfully partnering with families in support of their child’s growth and development

Classroom Health and Safety: We are committed to the highest standards to protect the health and safety of all students and staff in our care. First Lutheran Preschool follows the best practices as recommended by King County Public Health. Masks are now optional while indoors at First Lutheran Preschool.

We are open and in-person! Schedule a tour today.

Our office hours are Monday – Friday | 8:30am-2:30pm | September – June.

“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

How to work together to solve problems

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

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

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

Math Skills such as counting and sorting

Creative Expression and feeling proud of our effort

Growth Mindset and that we grow every time we try

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

That God’s love is there for all of us

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