Membership & Fees
1. Membership Fee
Our Membership Fee is $50 per child, charged at the start of each calendar year, or upon initial registration if during the year. It includes our signature Hills Performers t-shirt, which the children wear to the classes. If signing up in 2019, your membership will last until the end of December 2020.
2. Class Costs
The costs vary depending on the class which you child attends:
- Toddler and Parent – $150 per term
- Preschoolers – $200 per term
Fees are to be paid prior to the start of the term. If you are joining mid term you will be charged for the remaining weeks of the current term on the day of registration.
Terms are 10 weeks in length, aligned to the NSW school term dates.
3. Terms & Conditions

After the second lesson, you should contact us within 3 business days to request an enrolment cancellation and refund. Cancellation requests are to be made in writing by emailing us at email@example.com. The refund is calculated based on the number of weeks remaining in the term. Membership fee will not be refunded.
HILLS PERFORMERS STAFF: All employees, sub-contractors, contractors and directors will be fully trained and have a Working With Children Check.
CHILD SAFETY: Please ensure that your child arrives on time for every class and ensure that your child is in the presence of a teacher when you or the child’s guardian drops them off. Please ensure that your child is collected on time. We cannot be responsible for your child’s safety outside of class time. Should your child hurt his/herself you consent to employees, sub-contractors, contractors and directors of Hills Performers to attend to your child whilst Hills Performers wait for the nominated guardian to take over.
TOILET: Please take your child to the toilet immediately before class starts to avoid unnecessary disruptions during class. You consent to employees, sub-contractors, contractors and directors of Hills Performers taking your child to the toilet during class if your child requires to use the toilet. The children must be independently able to use the toilet; the staff will call you if any further assistance is required. If your child needs to go to the toilet during class time and you or your child’s guardian is not present on the premises, please be aware that we may ask another parent to assist your child.
VISITORS: To maintain a positive and controlled environment during the term our classes are generally closed to visitors. The very last class of every term will be open for viewing by friends and family and where a
child is particularly sensitive it may be possible to arrange for the first two classes to be attended by a parent or guardian.
FOOD AND DRINK must not be brought into the lesson. It is acceptable to bring water in a suitable bottle.
