Keep an eye out for when PPS starts... It only runs for a few weeks at a time.

Standard Communication

The DLSA administration team is responsible for keeping you up-to-date with everything that is going on with your booking and account details. With more than 1,300 families and more than 2,000 individual bookings, our team work hard to provide quality customer service, especially communication. 

We use emails, text messages, social media messaging and phone calls as standard communication procedure. It is very important that we have your most up-to-date contact information so that we can keep you up-to-date. To contact our administration team by email, please use

We will endeavour to respond to phone messages and/or email messages on the same day in which they are received, before the end of the business day. Our preferred method of communication is via the phone or email. Using social media to send messages to our administration team is not recommended as they do not have access to replying to personal messages through our social media pages. While we may send a text message to customers regarding bookings or account information, our administration team can't receive text messages as a form of communication, as this form of communication is done through an automated, secure service.

Rollover Complete

Just after the half way point in the current program of lessons, you will receive your Rollover Complete notification. This means any bookings you have with DLSA have been automatically rolled over to the next program. The benefits of our roll over system mean less time wasted at the front counter trying to rebook and easily maintain your preferred time or teacher. It is imperative that if you do not wish to continue your booking in the next program, you will need to complete a Deferral Form.

Usually by week 7 of a program, we will perform the booking Roll Over (RO). As per our Perpetual Program System, all bookings enrolled in the current program will automatically be rolled over to the next program. This saves you time trying to rebook, getting in before you lose your most preferred class/time/teacher. You will receive three booking confirmation emails. The first email will be sent at the time of the Roll Over. This will also signal the availability of the Pre-Payment Discount, which is our most discounted lesson rate. A second email will be sent out a week before the Pre-Payment Discount ends. A third will be sent out just before the new program begins.


Unpaid Accounts

During the week leading into the end of the Pre-Payment Discount period, we will send a Family Account Update to all families who have not already finalised their fees for the upcoming program. If there is a problem with your account and/or you have a problem with a payment, please contact our friendly administration team to discuss our family friendly options. Once the new program has commenced, we will automate the following communication:

Week 1 - Account Update email to all outstanding accounts (albeit not overdue).

Week 3 - Account Update email to all outstanding accounts (albeit not overdue).

Week 5 - Account Update email to all outstanding accounts (now overdue).

Week 6 - Account Update phone call and email to all outstanding accounts (now overdue).

Week 7 - Account Update phone call, email and text to all outstanding accounts (now overdue).

Week 8 - Account Update phone call, email and text to all outstanding accounts (now overdue and due for lesson suspension).

Week 9 - Account Update phone call, email and text to all outstanding accounts (now overdue and lesson has been suspended).

Week 10 - Account Update phone call, email and text to all outstanding accounts (now overdue and lesson has been suspended).

Week 11 - Account Update phone call, email and text to all outstanding accounts (now overdue and lesson suspended).

Policies are important, they help with communication. We work hard to be 100% transparent with our policies so that there can be no confusion.

These policies can also be viewed at any time in our Customer nPortal or Smartphone App.
