Full and Part Time Fees

ELC Tuition and Fees

The Center provides a year-round private education including certified care, a Christian environment, and highly trained staff. As a private, unsubsized program, the Center does not provide bussing or food at this time.


Full-Time Tuition

The Center's tuition is $834 per month for full-time care, which is about $4 an hour. There are discounts for families enrolling more than one child and for Saints Peter and Paul Lutheran Church members. Full-time enrollment may be suspended (or added) during the summer. If full-time spots fill up during a suspension, the families will be given the opportunity to return to full time prior to losing their spots. All changes to enrollment will require 2 weeks to take effect.


Part-Time Tuition

The Center is now offering part time services for those who do not need full-day or every-day care. Anyone not needing the full 10 hours per day may elect to pay the part-time rate for the hours their child attends. An hourly rate of $5 will apply, and a minimum enrollment of 20 hours per week is required. What does this look like, in practice? A family electing to enroll for 3 full days (10 hours per day) would pay the same as a family enrolling all 5 days for 6 hours a piece, since each would be paying for 30 hours total. The schedule must be agreed to ahead of time, and remian consistent for staffing purposes. If a child misses a scheduled day, the rates still apply. Please contact the Director (preschool@copperluth.org) for more details.


Payment Details

Tution is due every Monday, prior to attendance. Parents may elect to pay weekly or monthly. If tuition is paid late without contacting the director first, a late fee may be applied. Regular late pick up will also result in a late fee. Tuition may be paid at the front office or online. Full details given upon enrollment.



Families interested in financial aid should write a letter regarding need and submit it to the director for review. The director will schedule a follow-up interview to submit evidence of financial need. All aid is contingent on available funds. For details on need-based qualifications, please email preschool@copperluth.org.
