FAQ

Frequently asked questions

Do you have bond?


EKM doesn't collect a bond. Upon enrolment you will be required to pay 2 weeks fees in advance therefore enabling you to be 1 week in advance as per the enrolment agreement. Normal fees are payable by the first day of each week you child attends and should be at least one week in advance always. If fees are not kept up to date, your child/children’s position will be suspended till all fees are paid. You are also required to pay a non-refundable $50 admin fee. A hat will be supplied upon enrolment. Because you child occupies a permanent booking at the Centre, fees are payable for all booked days, including absences whatever the reason and public holiday. This ensures that a place is always reserved for you child and that fees overall can be kept to a minimum
