School Fees

The fees are determined by our small class sizes and staff ratio. We pride ourselves in our small class sizes of 10 to 12 children in a class and a max of 14 children in the older classes. There is an assistant in each class as well , making the ratio of child to adult 5:1 and 6:1, allowing us to give your child significant individual attention.

The fees are calculated annually, and for convenience are payable at the start of each month for 12 months from January to December, on or before the first day of the month.

Please contact the school for the latest fees.

Acceptance Fee: On accepting a place at Bright Buttons a once-off, non-refundable, acceptance fee of R3 100 (for 2023) is payable, which will confirm and secure your place as well as include a T-shirt and hat on starting at the school.

Annual Admin/Stationery Levy: This is an annual fee of R1 150 (for 2023) which covers the cost of a notebook, stationery, library bag, flip file, weekly Baker Day treats, and facecloth.
