Our Lady of the Lake Little Cardinals Pre School

Dream. Explore. Create.



Our Lady of the Lake’s Little Cardinals is a coeducational early childhood program that provides a child-centered environment rich with opportunities to grow spiritually, emotionally, and intellectually.  Our students are exposed to various learning experiences, which are tailored to meet individual learning styles. The highly qualified, dedicated teachers use research-based teaching strategies to engage the students while incorporating technology, play, and the arts to enhance the educational process.  All lead teachers are degreed and Louisiana State Certified. Most importantly, our students develop a love of God and learning throughout their time in Little Cardinals.



In a nurturing, Christ-centered environment, Our Lady of the Lake Roman Catholic School provides a strong moral and academic foundation for all students to achieve excellence in their education, confidence in their efforts and responsibility for their actions as they face the challenges of the ever-changing world.



Little Cardinals is comprised of a Three-Year-Old Program and a Four-Year-Old Program. In the Three-Year-Old Program, parents are offered flexible schedules: part-time, 2 or 3 days per week, or full-time, 5 days per week, from 7:15 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. In the Four-Year-Old Program, students attend full-time, 5 days per week, from 7:15 a.m. to 1:45 p.m.  After Care is available for all students until 6:00 p.m. Healthy snacks are served daily, and students bring their own lunches to accommodate food choice.



Little Cardinals is part of our Old Mandeville campus, located just blocks from scenic Lake Pontchartrain at 316 Lafitte Street.  Our location gives us the opportunity to serve the Greater St. Tammany area.
