  1. If the student attends school for two weeks or less, a month’s fees will be deducted
  2. If the student attends school for a period ranging between two weeks and one month, two months’ fees will be deducted
  3. If the student attends for more than a month, three months’ fees will be deducted
  4. The above cycle will restart at the end of every 3 months (from start date) or with the beginning of a new term

In addition, Nursery children must have started the potty training process with the aim of being fully trained by the end of the year.
