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.
As a school, we wholeheartedly believe that our mission is to serve children and families in the classroom. However, in order to honor the safety of students, families, staff and the greater community, we are not opening to in-person learning at FLRB School this fall. We do hope to open as soon as it is safe to do so, and are looking ahead with hope to in-person learning later this school year.
In the meantime, we truly want to offer meaningful learning opportunities that engage children and are supportive to parents. Starting in September 2020, we will be offering two options: one virtual and one hands on at home. As we move further into this school year, we hope to increase the options available to families until we are able to resume our in-person learning safely. For more information, please visit our registration and tuition page.

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.
