Frequently Asked Questions

What is your phone number?

09 376 6857. Our office not occupied at all times, if you leave a message, we will get back to you as soon as possible. 

How, and where do I pay the bond?

Please make a direct credit to 06-0199-0174197-00 using your child's name as a reference. 

Does paying a bond mean my child is guaranteed a place at TLC?

Unfortunately, no. The bond, means we will process your request, and as soon as a place is forecast to be available, we will let you know. We can usually give you an rough idea of availability when you come for a tour. We will not confirm an enrolment, or place on our wait list until the bond is paid. 

If you child does start at TLC, the bond is refunded when they leave. If we can never offer you what you have asked for and you chose to withdraw your application, the bond is refunded to you. If we offer you a place, but you choose not to take it up, the bond is forfeited, to cover the administration time spent.
