What is your Late Pickup Policy?
Late Pick Up Fee: A fee of $10 will be assessed for each five (5) minutes that a parent is late. (e.g., If the end time of the class is 4:00pm a 4:06pm arrival will result in a $10 fee). If a child has not been picked up within 30 minutes of the class ending and our attempts to contact parents and emergency contacts have been unsuccessful, the police and the County Children's Services may be called. SpeakDebate reserves the right to terminate enrollment for recurrent late pick-up.

My child attended this session last year. Will my child learn anything new if they join again this year?
We teach the fundamentals of public speaking at every session. Your child gets a platform to perform in front of a different audience in a non-threatening environment and an opportunity to work with different students every year. The topics for the speeches, debates, skits, group discussions and presentations differ every year. The more you practice the better and more confident you get. Practice makes Perfect!
