There will be no refund or makeup class in case of closure resulting from governmental intervention.

Pick Up and Drop Off from Class: Boundary of Responsibilities

  1. Centre Stage’s responsibility for minor students begins only when the child is delivered to the class room when a teacher is present in the room. Centre Stage is NOT responsible for children if they have been dropped off outside the building, nor if they are left unattended anywhere else on Centre Stage property.

Collection from Class

  1. In the event you are not present to collect your child when the class finishes, they remain with their teacher as the next class commences. Please ensure that you are prompt in the collection of your child to avoid any interruption of the class. If you know in advance you will be late, please let the office know.

Unsupervised Release from Class

Medical Needs

In case of need, and in the event that the parents cannot be contacted to give consent, the teacher in charge may authorise the medical examination of the child, the calling of further medical or specialist advice or the removal of the child to hospital, all the expenses thereby incurred to be met by the parents.The parent agrees that Centre Stage or any persons authorised by Centre Stage shall not be liable or responsible for any accident or personal injury sustained or suffered by the child, or for any damage to property however caused while the child is participating in any activity connected to the Centre Stage programme.

Use of Images

  1. From time to time we record class work to be used for media and academic release. Attendance of any Centre Stage class, production, workshop or event is acceptance of usage of your child’s image, written work and voice in academic works, brochures, videos or other promotional materials.

Missing class policy

  1. There will be no refunds if a student misses a class for any reason except the cancellation of that class by Centre Stage.

    Baby Stage and Play Stage students:

    Baby Stage and Play Stage students are entitled to two make up sessions per term if they should have to miss class through sickness. These will not take place at the usual class time and are non-transferrable to a new term.

    All other Classes:

    Where it is known in advance that a student will miss classes, a minimum of three classes in one term, and if advance notice is given to the office in writing, the student can join a dedicated Creative Arts workshop*. These will run as and when necessary.
    Contact the office for specifics dates and to register for these scheduled makeup workshops.

    If the student is unable to join any of the scheduled workshops, no refund will be given.

    *Make up workshops do not apply to students on performance courses (Theatre Workshop and On Stage) as there are many hours of extra rehearsals added for gratis when it comes to their annual shows.


  1. Please do not bring your children to class if they are sick – this includes a runny nose or a cough. We realise that the common cold is no more than a temporary hiccup for many children, but for some it can quickly develop into much worse. So please be considerate and keep your child at home if he/she is unwell. Centre Stage reserves the right to ask parents to take their children home if they arrive at class clearly unwell.


  1. Some children enrolled at Centre Stage are allergic to nuts. There is always the possibility that children may share their snacks, and to prevent danger to those who suffer from allergies, we ask that Centre Stage be maintained as a nut free school.


  1. In an attempt to use less paper, we distribute our information electronically via email, our closed Facebook group and on the website. For this to work effectively, we need you to read the bulletins and newsletters as soon as they are received. Please inform us of any changes to mailing address, email address or contact numbers in order for us to be able to contact you, especially in an emergency.

    Please ensure that the email addresses info@centre-stage.com, east@centre-stage.com and communication@centre-stage.com are saved to your list of contacts and does not end up in your spam folder. We also ask that you join our closed Facebook group and follow us on Instagram as we use that to disseminate photos and videos from our shows and classes.

The Do Not Call registry has come into effect on 2 January 2014 and the data protection provisions have taken effect on the 2 July 2014. If you have registered your Singapore telephone numbers, including mobile, fixed-line, residential and business numbers with the registry, the school is unable to contact you via these telephone number(s) for anything other than information related to your current registered classes that you and/or your child attend.
