With a team of highly qualified and Louisiana State Certified teachers, we employ research-based teaching strategies that captivate the students' imagination while integrating play, the arts, and appropriate technology to enrich the educational journey. Above all, our utmost joy lies in witnessing our Little Cardinals blossom with a genuine love for God and a thirst for knowledge throughout their time with us.
