George Cottage and St. Martin’s Are Available to Help In Times of Transition
George Cottage at St. Martin’s recognizes that this is a time of transition for many members in our community. Spots are available for families in need of immediate care. Contact our Admission Office at (504)736-9917 to learn more.
St. Martin’s George Cottage is an early childhood learning program for children eight weeks to four years old. Its activity-oriented approach encourages exploration, nurtures the spirit, and cultivates a sense of wonder while stimulating young children socially, emotionally, cognitively, and physically.

The faculty and staff of George Cottage adhere to the highest levels of cleanliness, sanitation, health, and safety practices while caring for and teaching our youngest learners.
The program is inspired by methods developed in the infant and toddler centers of Reggio Emilia, Italy. George Cottage’s approach emphasizes exploration and hands-on learning based on the interests and needs of the children in each group. StM’s youngest students learn and grow in a secure, controlled-access setting designed to promote social skills, decision-making, and play.
The faculty is a community of veteran caregivers who participate in ongoing training to remain at the forefront of early childhood education. Low student-teacher ratios and minimal staff turnover combine to create a family of familiar faces as children progress through the program.
The recently expanded and enhanced facility that houses the program provides a physical environment which supports best practices in early childhood learning. Four outdoor classrooms help develop motor skills, and interaction with their classmates helps little ones grow socially.
George Cottage is an environment rich with exploration, discovery, and growth – the first steps toward a lifetime of learning.
