The Learning Space Fees

The Alithia Learning Space opens in 2019, 4-days-per-week with qualified Facilitators, Community Mentors and Volunteering Parents working together to guide creative, cultural and therapeutic workshops and learning experiences (largely instigated by the children), with a discovery-based approach. Parents can stay with the group or leave children in the care of a trained volunteering parent. Read what a typical day at Alithia involves or read our FAQ.

Rather than charging per workshop, we offer membership that allows access to the hub where children can par-take in as many workshops that are on that day. Please contact us to view the estimated fees which are dependent on additional funding. We aim to keep costs low to assist families in a low socio-economic area and offer additional support for those in financial hardship. This is a not-for-profit run by volunteers so fees cover facilitators and the running costs only: 

Casual Visit Passes

  • Pay as you go Only pay for what you use! Casual Visit bookings can be made via our simple online booking system.
  • Book 24 hours prior We ask bookings to be made 24 hours prior to attending if possible. This helps mentors to read the details of the children attending and be prepared for the next day.
