Your bond is calculated by the number of days per week you would like your child to attend, multiplied by 2 weeks.

 

Example:

               1 day at $65 x 2 weeks = $130

               1 day at $35 x 2 weeks = $70

 

Your bond will be refunded when your child has left pre-school, or charged to your fees if you fail to give the required 2 weeks notice if you wish to withdraw your child from pre-school.

 

We also charge a one-off administration fee of $65 when enrollment is accepted.
