Term Fees

Fees for lessons are charged by the term. It is compulsory for fees to be paid prior to the commencement of each term. I understand that once enrolled, I am responsible for and agree to pay all fees for my child. Students joining mid-term are charged on a pro-rata basis. All term fees are payable in advance. Non-payment of term fees will result in exclusion of your child from lessons. I understand that class teachers are not in a position to discuss fees and all enquiries need to be directed to the administration department contact@redcatscience.com

If your child is genuinely not happy at Red Cat Science we will refund the balance of your term fees if you wish to withdraw within two lessons of your initial enrolment.* After the second class, the parent has 3 business days to request an enrolment cancelation and refund. Cancellation requests can be made by emailing CONTACT@REDCATSCIENCE.COM. The refund is calculated based on the number of weeks remaining in the term and is subject to the terms stated in the ‘Refunds’ section of these Terms and Conditions.

Re-enrolling:

Enrolments are not rolled over into the next term. Each term you will be required to re-enrol your child. Notice will be given by email when enrolments are open. It is the responsibility of the parent to ensure that Red Cat Science has the correct email address on file. Initially, enrolments will only open to existing students with Red Cat Science. The notification will specify a date in which enrolments will open to the general public. It is the responsibility of the parent to ensure that their child is enrolled before this date to secure their position in the next term. After the specified date, Red Cat Science cannot guarantee any child’s position who has not yet re-enrolled a class.

Missed lessons:

Refunds or credits cannot be provided for classes missed due to personal circumstances of the student.

Public Holidays:

Red Cat Science does not teach classes on Public Holidays. Term dates are adjusted where possible to compensate for lessons missed due to Gazetted Public Holidays. Should your lesson fall on a public holiday, your term will be adjusted accordingly.

Cancellation of classes:

Occasionally, due to unforeseen circumstances, Red Cat Science may need to cancel a regularly scheduled class. Notice will be given as far in advance as possible, however lessons can be cancelled at short notice (for example, the morning of your lesson). Cancellation notifications are sent via email and SMS as this is the most efficient and effective way.* Individual phone calls will not be made due to class sizes and the timeframes in which cancellations are required to be made. In the event of a cancellation, a make-up class will be offered where possible within the school holidays should you not be able to attend the same rules as a missed lesson apply. In the event that a make-up class cannot be arranged, a credit will be placed on the student’s account which will be carried forward to the new term. Credits are valid until week 1 of the following term (so that they can be used against the following terms fees). Credits may be used for Red Cat Science term fees (this is non-refundable). Once this period has lapsed the credit will be unusable and unable to be refunded. *It is the parents’ responsibility to ensure the mobile number on file is up to date.

Class Changes:

Occasionally, due to unforeseen circumstances, Red Cat Science may be required to make a change to a regularly scheduled class. Changes may be permanent or on a one-off basis. Changes may include, but are not limited to, a change in venue, class time or teacher. Red Cat Science is unable to provide financial compensation for any classes missed due to a one-off change to a regularly scheduled class, however the child may attend a make-up lesson in a comparable class at a suitable location. In the event that a permanent change to a regularly scheduled class is unsuitable to a child, a transfer to an alternative suitable location will be offered. Should a suitable alternative location not be available, a refund of the balance of the remaining weeks in the term will be offered. This refund will be subject to the terms stated in the ‘Refunds’ section of these Terms and Conditions.

Termination of classes:

If enrolment is fewer than ten students per class or in other unforeseen circumstances, Red Cat Science reserves the right to terminate the class. The schedule is subject to change based on enrolment and customer demand. No classes are guaranteed. Should the class your child is enrolled in be terminated you will be offered placement in an alternative location. Should another suitable location not be available, your term fees will be refunded on a pro-rata basis.

Refunds:

All refunds are subject to a $20 administration fee with the exceptions of refunds processed for lesson credits provided for classes cancelled by Red Cat Science and refunds processed for classes that have been terminated by Red Cat Science
