Can I pay a booking on the day?

We encourage parents and carers to pay at least 24 hours in advance before the actual session occurs. All payments should be strictly done before attending the session that has been booked. Richer Education reserves the right to refuse entry to any of its courses, camps and/or activities if payment has not been received.
