Ignite minds takes our responsibility to keep our fees as low as possible very seriously.  Our administration fees do not include bank charges as they are not equal to all families, so we have chosen to pass on the exact charges so that families are only charged for fees associated with their transactions.  We provide families with 2 payment methods as both methods are integrated with our IT systems and reduce the labour costs and our charges to you.

Each educator sets thieir own rate and this will be discussed with you prior to enrlment.  Rates vary from $8 to $15 per hour depending on the educator qualifications and local market conditions.

Depending on your payment method below, you will also have the following additional fees.

  • Credit Card Fee of $1.9% per transaction
  • Direct Deposit of $0.99 per transaction and up to $30 for dishonour fees.

We are not able to accept any other form of payment at this stage.
