If Pricing is a Concern...
Here are two ways to meet you where you are!
The DiF-Ferral Program
You tell a friend about DIF, and let them know you’ll both get a discount if they sign up. When they insert your name on our registration form, we’ll issue you both a discount. And the more people that reference you, the more you save:
Refer 1-3 Friends - You'll get a 50% discount and your referrals will each receive a 20% discount.
Refer 4+ Friends - You'll get a 100% (full) discount and your referrals will each receive a 20% discount.
Flexible Pricing Deposit - Our Flexible Pricing program allows parents who have difficulty paying full price to pay what they can. This Deposit option allows you to make a small down payment to secure your child’s spot in your selected DiF program. We’ll then follow up with you to discuss your need, validate it, and then work out what you’re able to pay.
The Games We Play & What We Learn Together
Our Debater Tots group allows your little one to develop important social and developmental skills like listening, sharing, and expressing themselves through solving tricky questions and engaging in fun active-listening games. Our phenomenal teachers will help your child learn to speak loud and proud, give reasons for their opinions, and listen to how our friends can have different beliefs.
Through play-based learning we’ll encourage your little one to be silly, explore their curiosity, and develop their confidence all while having a blast with new friends. Your child will work on mindful listening through games like “Repeat After Me,” and develop critical thinking skills by becoming “Super Secret Detectives” tasked with solving the Mystery of the Stolen Toy.
While all our Tots classes are Virtual (for now!), our teachers are outstanding at helping kids stay focused while having fun. Plus we take tons of Wiggle Breaks to keep your child moving. At Debate it Forward, we adamantly believe that it’s never too early to ‘learn how to learn,’ and we’d love to have the chance to work and play with your child in our safe and inclusive environment.
