Payment and Withdrawal Policy
As a service which serves the needs of working parents, The Learning Harbour is committed to running programmes during the school holidays. As such, the half-day programme fees are applicable during the school holiday.
The Learning Harbour would be running full-day programmes during the school holidays. There will be an additional top-up of SGD $25 per week, and students who are only joining for the half-day programme can join us from 1.30pm onwards.
A written notice of at least 4 weeks (i.e. by the 1stof the month) must be given to The Learning Harbour on the intention to withdraw or change the schedule of the student.
The programme fees are still payable when the student is absent. This is because a place has been reserved for the student, and his/her name is maintained in the class register. Payment of fees is discontinued only after the student has withdrawn from the centre.
For security purposes and also to prevent disruption to the ongoing activity, we seek your kind understanding in refraining from entering the school premises and fetching your child at the centre.
Should any non-authorized personnel request to visit your child or pick up your child from the centre, The Learning Harbour reserves the right to turn away the visitor or refuse entry to any non-authorized personnel.

We seek your kind understanding that students who are suffering from an infectious disease will be exempted from programme until the expiry of the medical certificate and/or when the student exhibits no symptoms of the illness.

Outdoor activities / sports

To ensure food safety, students are not allowed to bring outside/home-cooked food to the centre for consumption.
