Terms & Conditions

Invoices are for the full school year (4 terms, or pro rated if you began later).

Payment is by transfer to the charity’s bank account, with banking details provided on the invoices. All paid fees are non-refundable, but credits for future terms are available at our discretion.

Siblings Discount:  10% discount on term fees. Discounts only apply to full term enrolments (not partial terms) that are paid in full by the due date. Discounts are only available for enrolments made for the same term.

Parents: Parents are always able to attend their child’s class free of charge. Parents accompanying their children in the Early Learners class are expected to participate along with their child. Parents wishing to attend a Prep or School Year 2+ class are asked expected to sit at the back of the class quietly.

Late or Non-payment of school year invoices
If you are in arrears and no special arrangement has been made with the office beforehand, the debt will be referred to a debt collector and you will bear all debt collection costs.

Withdrawals & Refunds
To withdraw from the school year and programme entirely, a parent must give at least 4 weeks advance notice in writing via email to enable us to offer the space to another student and adjust accounts. Term fees during the 4 week notice period are non-refundable. This is because the teachers would have already been contracted and committed to the time involved.
