Because a student’s per-hour rate depends on age and how many hours he/she is taking, it’s possible that each child in your family could pay a different rate.

LOL is in session for 34 weeks.
Families pay only for the weeks that LOL is in session—not for winter and spring breaks.

Little Sprouts:

Families choose from two to four days per week (Tuesday/Thursday or Wednesday/Friday or all four days), with either half or full-time days.

Registration, Material, and Advanced Level Class Fees:

Registration is completed online, on a first-come, first-served basis. Current LOL families are given a priority registration period before it is open to the general public.

In order to reserve a spot in classes, we require families to pay the registration fee of $100 per student, and yearly material fees for each student. Materials fee are charged per class, depending on the supplies needed. The average materials fee is $35, although classes using more materials (science, cooking, art, etc.) will be higher.

Families whose material fees are in excess of $500 will only be charged $500 at time of registration, with the balance added to the first invoice. Please see tuition contract for specific details.

Advanced Level Class Fee:

There is an additional non-refundable fee of $100 assessed to all advanced level classes meeting once a week, and a $200 fee for advanced classes meeting twice per week. This is necessary to cover costs, as these classes are naturally smaller in class size than regular classes.

Please note: class selections will not be reserved until registration and material fees are received.

Adding and Dropping Classes

We want students to be happy in their classes and recognize that sometimes a class is not a fit and a change will need to be made. We encourage students to give the class a chance before making a decision. One or two days is not enough time to tell! If a class change is necessary, please contact the administration via email and explain the reason for the change. Classes changed after July 1 will incur a $15 per class change fee.

Family Job

Family Job/Fee: To keep our tuition rates at a minimum, we require every family either to be responsible for a specific job or to pay a family fee. The fee enables us to hire others to perform the needed work, and is billed monthly. As family jobs vary, each job is assigned a "point value" based on effort required. ("Points" are not equal to hours.) Families will choose their job(s) online. The number of enrolled hours and corresponding point requirement or job fee is as follows:

1-3.5 enrolled hours = 2 job points or $30/year
3.75-6.5 enrolled hours = 5 job points or $75/year
6.75-9.5 enrolled hours = 10 job points or $150/year
9.75-12.75 enrolled hours = 15 job points or $225/year
13+ enrolled hours = 20 job points or $300/year

Scholarships may be available for families with financial need

Limited scholarship funds are available for returning LOL families with true financial need. Scholarships are very limited as money is available only when LOL families contribute to this fund. An independent agency, FACTS, compiles family financial information and makes scholarship recommendations. Scholarship applications may be submitted from March 1 through May 1. To apply, please visit FACTS website.


Important Messages

LOL Covid-19 Plan
It is our goal to return to in-person classes as soon as safely possible. We are doing our best to make plans that are safe, respectful, and that preserve the sense of a loving community. Specific safety information has been emailed to all families.

Opening Plans
Delayed Start Date: Sept. 29th Plan A: In-person start with remote option Plan B: Hybrid In-person/Online with remote option Plan C: Online

Reason for Delayed Start
A delayed start will give us the advantage of watching and learning from the experiences of other schools and universities, who will have been open since mid-Aug. This will allow us to make educated adjustments and changes to our plans as needed.

Reason for Delayed Start Date
A delayed start will allow more time for the local infection rate to be reduced and improve the availability of testing.

Safety Features
Mask-wearing will be a major part of our safety protocol. We are holding off on making specific mask use details at this time. It is our goal to provide mask-free times during the day for all students and staff members.

Students 9 and younger
Masks will not be required on a regular basis for children 9 and under but all safety provisions will be closely followed.

Safety Features
We will make use of our large classrooms and small class sizes to spread out. Windows will be open as much as possible. Additional, supervised, outside space will be opened for lunches and classes.

Safety Features
Place high quality air purifiers in as many classes as possible (we have 6 right now).Stagger class dismissals to limit hallway traffic Change drop-off and pick-up procedures

Safety Features
Ask parents to be vigilant about keeping children home if they exhibit any signs of illness. Meet with all teachers to discuss a unified plan to keep everyone as safe as possible. Clearly and quickly communicate all expectations and updated information
