The Lab is committed to making its classes available to children across Long Beach and surrounding areas. This said, we are a non-profit and operate on a narrow margin. We try to provide reduced fees to families who need them whenever possible. But we can only provide these to a limited number of families each semester. Approval for reduced fees is not guaranteed and we take lifestyle choices, savings and other factors into account when deciding on eligibility for reduced fees. Approval for reduced fees is by year. You may need to re-apply each year.
