Welcome from Our Preschool Director

Welcome to Saint Rose of Lima Catholic Preschool!

Nicole Chauvin, Preschool Director

As a Catholic school alumnus, I feel as though He has brought me back home! It is truly a blessing to be a part of this Catholic preschool and elementary school where I am able to share the morals, values and faith that I have received with your children.

As the Preschool Director, Extended Care Director and mother, I am truly dedicated to preparing your children for academic excellence, spiritual development, social responsibility and instill the joy of learning.

I was born and raised in Houma, Louisiana, and moved back to Tennessee in 2017 with my husband and two children who both attend Saint Rose. I have a Master’s Degree in Education with a Specialty in Instruction and Curriculum and a Bachelor’s in Vocal Music Performance with a Concentration in Education. I have taught at public and Catholic schools over my 14 years of teaching. I have taught music to preschool through 12th grade, Language Arts to 5th and 6th grade, Science to 5th through 7th grade, and was the Assistant Principal for two years at a Catholic School in Louisiana before moving to Murfreesboro.

I believe in celebrating the innocence of early learners and encouraging their sense of wonder. Our caring team of teachers with expertise in early childhood education provides a nurturing, faith-based experience for your child. A small classroom ratio, an inquiry-based curriculum and enrichment programs taught by specialists are hallmarks of our state-licensed program. Our Preschool program balances an inclusive classroom with thoughtful integration into the elementary school environment.

I look forward to meeting you soon! Please stop by for a tour of our beautiful campus and faith-filled, state-licensed Preschool.

The future belongs to people with children, not with things. Things rust and break but every child is a universe of possibility that reaches into eternity, connecting our memories and our hopes in a sign of God’s love across the generations. That’s what matters. The soul of a child is forever.
