MISSION STATEMENT

Our Lady of Lourdes is a parish school ministering in the Spirit of Christ to children preschool through eighth grade to learn, to live, and to love as faith-filled, educated, service-oriented individuals. Rose Cottage Preschool specializes in early childhood education for children three to five years of age. This program offers opportunities for learning and personal growth in a safe, culturally relevant environment. Our goal is to foster the social, emotional, cognitive and
spiritual development of each child in our care. Strong partnerships between the home, school, and community will promote, enrich, and enhance the quality of life and ultimately produce selfreliance with an emphasis on the formation of the whole child.

PHILOSOPHY

Our Lady of Lourdes School is a faith-filled parish school founded by the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The Rose cottage Preschool continues the tradition of the BVMs to educate the mind, body, and spirit to its full potential. With Christ as our foundation, love and charity are woven into classroom instruction and school activities.

Our Lady of Lourdes Rose Cottage Preschool recognizes parents as the primary educators working in a positive partnership with parish and school to create a faith community that inspires its members to live as Jesus lives.

In the name of Jesus Christ, we unite with one another in the single purpose of influencing the educational and spiritual journey of each student. Our Lady of Lourdes Rose Cottage Preschool works to enhance the development and growth of the whole child through interactions and activities that focus on skills in all areas of spiritual, social/emotional, language and cognitive perceptual, moral, and physical development.
