Geneva Presbyterian Preschool teachers use published curricula to develop lesson plans for their classes. Lesson plans are posted in the classrooms on the parent information boards.  The Curricula used may include Foundations for Success for the 2 year olds and Links to Early Learning for 3 year olds. Teachers have freedom to tailor the curriculum to the needs and interests of the class.

Geneva Presbyterian Preschool will also be teaching children about Christ and how He would have us live.  We draw inspiration from the ultimate source:  the Bible!  Christian values are taught daily using Bible stories through activities at Circle time, in the music we sing, in the prayers we say, and WEEKLY devotions.
