  • Fees are payable in full by the first week of class for each semester.  If the teacher has to cancel a lesson due to their sickness a refund will be offered. Cases of force majeure are excluded. Unfortunately, classes missed by the student for any reason cannot be reimbursed. However, as the homework will be provided,  no child should fall behind. 

  • Please inform us if you would prefer your child's photograph not to appear in our gallery or any other social or printed media. Of course, children's names are never posted next to photographs. 

  • Notice for the withdrawal of a child from group lessons is three full months before the end of a semester. Otherwise, the semester fees will be due in full. 

  • Parents are required to have health, accident and liability insurance for their children. 

  • Classes for the following academic year are organized in April and current students, and their siblings, always have priority.
