Montgrove College has partnered with Edstart. Edstart is a leading provider of payment and technology services for the education sector in Australia, and is the payment platform we use to receive all Fee payments.

Every family must create an Edstart Plus account before their child commences at Montgrove College. With Edstart you can choose when and how to schedule Fee payments, with flexible options for when circumstances change.

How does it work?

  1. Set up your Edstart Plus account by visiting www.edstart.com.au/pared
  2. You can select the frequency of your Fee payments (weekly, fortnightly, monthly, termly or annually) as well as the date you would like to be charged, and by which payment method you prefer.
  3. Edstart will contact you to finalise the setup for your Edstart Plus account.

If you have any questions regarding the payment of your child’s Fees, please contact Edstart in the first instance by calling 1300 139 445 or emailing contact@edstart.com.au. The customer service team are available Monday-Friday between 8AM-8PM.

As part of our commitment to parents, the school absorbs the administrative fees for your Edstart Plus account, so this service is free for families to use.
