Upon email confirmation from us, half the total cost of the current trimester is due (this may be prorated depending on your start date). If you would like a payment plan (see below) a minimum of $100 deposit is due. There is a lot of information in the tables below, but don’t worry – you will receive a detailed email with the amount due prior to payment that will include all discounted rates if applicable. As part of your payment there is a $50 non-refundable deposit.*
*Waived if programming is affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic – full refunds will be issued.
We accept e-transfers (to email@example.com), post-dated cheques, and cash. Please wait until you have received a confirmation email prior to paying.

All of our programs are created and staff hired based on enrollment. We invest a lot in our programs before they begin and often these expenses cannot be recovered due to cancellation. When considering a cancellation, please be aware of this and respectful of our policies – find out more in our Parent Handbook.
A full refund (less $50 non-refundable deposit) will be issued for any cancellation made up to 2 weeks prior to the trimester. Please refer to our Parent Handbook for detailed policies concerning refunds.
FSFNS reserves the right to cancel schools/camps that have low registration (or in the interest of Public Health concerns like COVID-19). In this event, a credit or full refund will be provided.
