Our Fees Policy

The Willows Nursery School is a fee paying school. School fees are payable in advance. Aftercare accounts are payable at the end of the month. EFT payments are preferable; please use your child’s name and surname as a reference for payments and send notification of payment to our email address, i.e. accounts@thewillows-school.co.za.

A full term’s written notice is required when withdrawing your child from the Willows, or otherwise one term’s fees in lieu thereof. You remain liable for the school fees during the notice period.

Please note that it is school policy to withhold reports on overdue accounts.

Fees have been scaled to provide a saving if paying in advance per term (~2.6%) or per annum (~6.3%). Please notify the office as to how you will be paying your account so that you can be invoiced accordingly. Should the child leave the School prior to the completion of the 4 month term period or 12 month annum period, then the discount already applied for the previous months will be forfeited, and the full monthly school fee will be applied retrospectively, and the balance refunded to the parent.

The increase of school fees for 2019 are between 6 and 7%. The co-curricular activities of Sport, Music, Drama and Zulu are included in the Primary fees, and Music, Drama, Dancing and Gym are included in the Nursery fee.
