1. Registration and re-registration fees.
A registration fee of CHF 500.- and an advance on tuition fees of CHF 1'000.- are required for each school year (the latter will be deducted from the 1st term of school fees), payable by 1 April 2020 at the latest. These amounts remain with the School in the event of cancellation. The place is only confirmed after payment has been made on the date indicated, otherwise it will be given to another child on the waiting list.
2. Annual rates*.
Rates are due for the entire school year over 10 months (four and a half days of instruction). The school year is divided into three terms (September-December; January-March; April-June). The payment of the compulsory annual fees is CHF. 21'200.-, comprising:
CHF 7'880.- (31 july)
CHF 5'910.- (30 november)
CHF 5'910.- (end february)
*School fees also include morning snack, swimming lessons, sports, motor skills.

Tuition fees are payable per term on the following due dates:
CHF 8'480.- (31 july)
CHF 6'360.- (30 november)
CHF 6'360.- (end february)
The payment dates indicated above are mandatory. Not respected, they give rise to a late payment penalty of CHF 50.- per reminder. No reduction in tuition will be granted due to the pupil's absence, withdrawal or dismissal.
3. Supervised studies, (snack included):
two hours per week CHF 800.-; one hour per week CHF 500.- per year.
The Foundation Board updates the fees for each new school year. The new rates are communicated to parents with re-enrollment requests.
The Ecole des Nations (Montessori Pedagogy) is a Foundation whose only resources come from the school fees paid by parents for their child’s schooling. It incurs heavy fixed costs and significant salary costs for its qualified staff, regardless of the number of pupils. The Foundation Board that manages it must, therefore, be strict in the management of its finances and its debtors.
*The “Agreement between the School and Parents*, which accompanies the “Financial Conditions” and the “Conditions of admission”, must be signed before a registration and entry into the School become final.
