TUITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
The Preschool Tuition Assistance Program is intended to maintain the cultural and economic diversity of the Preschool and to provide opportunities to families who might not otherwise be able to meet the full cost of Preschool education. The need for tuition assistance should not discourage a family from applying to LLEV. Requests for tuition assistance are considered independently of the admission process and are entirely need-based. We proudly adhere to our Non-Discrimination Policy: Lifelong Learning of Estes Valley admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admission policy, scholarships and tuition assistance programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
