Kinderland Preschool Revision of Fees!

Postby pinkapple04 » Tue Mar 27, 2012 8:48 pm

My girl is in K2 this year and Kinderland fees is $1,290.00 per term. This 22 March 2012 I received a notice that the school fees is revised to $1,610.00 starting from Term 3!

I felt this is totally unfair as school fees should not revised in middle of year moreover this is her last year. SO what can I do?! I am stuck in a situation to be force to pay the difference ($350 x 2)!! Pulling out my gal will be my last resort, of cos I am reluctant to do that thinking of all the time I need to find a new school and new uniforms and my gals feeling!

I wonder if any parents out there experience such revision (huge jump)!

What kind of measure that a parent can take to prevent school "anyhow" increase school fees?

My girl is also in Kinderland Preschool and K1 this year! She still has 1.5 years to go and I feel it's ridiculous to keep increasing the school fees. Didn't they just increase it last year?? My girl is already settled down in school and has a her own clique and all but now I have plans to pull her out because it's not worth paying so much!! I feel it's so unfair to my girl. Honestly changing school is the last thing on my mind right now because I am currently 39 weeks pregnant with baby #2! What have I gotten myself into? Wonder if there's anything we can do about this! :(

Yio Chu Kang. I think so too! Many of my girl's classmates have withdrawn last term and I don't really know the rest of the parents as my girl takes the school bus. If not I probably gather the rest of the parents too! Sigh..

My girl at Serangoon Preschool and she take school bus too, no interactions with other parents. So seems like the school will go ahead with it, in fact I had send 2 emails regards to this issue.....with no response. That's made me more mad :mad:

I see. No response?! Omg. Wonder what's the principal doing. I have not replied to that email. Already have so much on my mind with the new baby coming and all! I think I better think carefully after I pop. I just know that it's not worth paying so much.
