Not sure where to post this, I hope it's thread appropriate here.
My son is studying K1 in a regular kindy and so now is the school hols. We paid for next term's fees before school closed.
I have been a sahm since I was pregnant with him and out of a sudden, I decided to go back to work and almost immediately got a job offer through my contact. I have to start work in July and since there's no one else that could care for my son, I will have to put him in a full day childcare.
I contacted the school and they said they do not issue refunds. I said I thought I was suppose to give just 1 month notice and they said that's for the $100 deposit I placed. So now, even though the term hasn't yet commenced, they won't even refund me on the full term fees I had paid.
Is this the normal policy for all schools? So I just donated $1400 to the school for nothing? Doesn't sound reasonable to me at all.
