Meet Our Director

Katie LaFont

         Hello! I am excited to announce that I will serve as Preschool Director for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year at St. Patrick Preschool. I cannot wait to see all of our returning families and to meet our newest members in the fall. I am very passionate about early childhood education and hope to instill a love of learning in all our students both academically and spiritually.

         Here is a little about me: I was born and raised in Lafayette, LA. I attended UL Lafayette and graduated in May 2007, with a B.A. of Science, in Hospitality Management. After marrying, my husband Matthew in 2013, I decided to convert my degree into a teaching certification through UL Lafayette's alternative certification program, in Early Childhood Education.

         After becoming certified in 2016, I began working in Ascension Parish Schools teaching Pre-K 4. In 2019, I wanted more time with my two young children. My goal was to find a place where they could attend and I could teach, and that is when I found St. Patrick Preschool. This past year, I've had a delightful time teaching alongside an amazing staff and working wth a wonderful group of students. As a bonus, being across the hallway from my own children has been a great blessing.

         At St. Patrick, we have a "hidden gem" right behind our church. That gem is our half day pre-school. We provide quality education in a faith-filled environment in order to achieve early success and school readiness for all children. We learn a lot and have a blast.  Please e-mail me with any questions or to set up a tour!
