Due to COVID-19, LRC has adjusted procedures specific to each program which may include smaller group sizes, lower enrollment occupancy, social distancing regulations, temperature checks, increased sanitization and/or virtual programming.
LRC offers a Sliding Fee Scale based on gross family income with the assistance of United Way. For questions or to enroll, please visit the Learning Resource Center online at LRCPolk.com or call 863-688-9477.
