The additional costs of operating following the guidelines surrounding Covid19, have resulted in our costs increasing by just over 30%. These costs include:-
- Additional studios hours to allow for cleaning before we commence teaching each day and cleaning between classes.
- The engagement of 2 assistant teachers all day Saturday to aid teaching in this new environment, and to facilitate the transition and cleaning between classes.
Regrettably this means that we must increase our fees but we will not be passing all of this increase on to parents.
The increase will be approximately 15%. Details of fees will be sent to you individually via WhatsApp.
There would have been a small increase from September 2020 as generally costs had been increasing, but it would not have been anything of this magnitude. Given the current economic climate it is not something we have undertaken lightly, but it is sadly unavoidable.
One final note we are no longer able to accept cash payments for fees. All payments from September must be by standing order or bank transfer. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
