There is a $10 cost per child all children must be accompanied by an adult. Workshops last about 1 hour.

Signs ups for these programs are announced on the LCAS Facebook page.

School Programs (SOL based)

LCAS offers programs to schools within Loudoun County at no cost. School programs are available for all grades and needs. Humane educators focus on meeting Virginia Standards of Learning with all programs. Educators are also able to bring animals to certain programs, if an appropriate animal is available and the school allows it.

Teachers or administrators interested in a humane education program at their school should fill out a Humane Education Request Form and return it to the Humane Education Coordinator.

After School Programs

In addition to classroom programs, LCAS offers free humane education programs to groups and clubs outside of school. This includes, CASA, YAS, Girl Scouts, BSA and other independent groups. These programs are for all ages and led by a humane educator or animal control officer. These programs are offered at no cost and an animal visitor can be brought by the program leader if available and allowed by the group or club.

Group leaders interested in a humane education program for their group or club should fill out a Humane Education Request Form and return it to the Humane Education Coordinator.
