Welcome to our learning community!

We would like to cultivate a warm and nurturing environment. These terms and conditions are spelt out for clarity and avoidance of doubt. We aim to keep them as simple and friendly as possible as is necessary for the smooth conduct of our programme.

Administrative Policies

  1. Classes and Scheduling
    1. Missed Class: When students are unable to attend lessons because of illness, a lesson may be rescheduled – up to 3 times a year. Notice has to be given 24 hours in advance for lessons to be rescheduled, and it is subject to the availability of the assigned teacher. A mutually agreed date and time for the make up class will have to be found within a month of the missed class.
    2. Rescheduling: Classes missed due to valid reasons like school activities, family trips overseas or exams may be rescheduled with 14 days advance notice, but subject to the teacher’s availability. If rescheduling is required due to the teacher’s unavailability, TMC is committed to ensuring that sufficient advance notice is given and that inconvenience to you and your child is minimised for the rescheduled lesson.
    3. Group Classes: Group classes will take place during the school term, and cannot be rescheduled. There are 40 sessions per group per year, and there will be no make up for missing group class.
  2. Fees and Payments
    1. Fees will be paid on a monthly basis throughout the year.
    2. All fees are due by the first week of the month. Kindly ensure that payments are prompt. A late payment fee of $20 per month will be charged for late payments after due date.
