Joining the Yallingup Steiner School is a commitment to the wellbeing and good of our school. Reliable income from fees is an essential part of this. Fees and charges are invoiced at the beginning of each year or upon enrolment, and statements are issued week 4 of each term. In order to register a child for enrolment, an application fee of $90.00 per child must accompany the application form. This fee is non-refundable and covers administration costs.  Any new families entering the school will be required to pay an Establishment Fee of $720.00, on the acceptance of a place for the first child.  This fee is non-refundable and is used for capital improvements.

 

Fees paid in full annually by January 31st 2018, will receive a further 5% discount.

Annual Fees due Wednesday January 31st 2018

 

All 2018 school fees will all be raised as annual invoices, with a statement issued week four of each term. Please note fees will no longer be invoiced per term. Families not able to pay their annual invoice in full will need to sign a payment arrangement in writing agreed with the Business Manager.

Fee Agreement & Direct Debit Payment Plan are available for download below.

 

There are 2 payment options:

Quarterly: Pay fees each term in full 10 days before the start of each Term

Those families choosing option 2 will need to sign a payment arrangement in writing agreed with the Business Manager

 

Payments can be made in cash, direct debit or by cheque. Accounts can be paid in person during office hours.  Cheques/money orders can be posted to the school. Please do not send fees in your child’s bag.

Terms of payment must be adhered to unless prior arrangements regarding payment plans have been made (and accepted) in writing to the Business Manager.   A late fee will apply to accounts not paid in full by the first Friday of each term and where no fortnightly payment plan has been put in place.

Tuition fees from one term are not to be outstanding at the beginning of the next term, unless prior approval has been sought.
