Etiquette for Children
Children are like sponges, soaking up everything they see and hear, and when they learn good manners from a young age these quickly become second nature. We firmly believe that confident and secure children are happy children. Feeling at ease in a variety of social environments will boost their self-esteem and lay the foundations for a smooth and joyful transition into adulthood.
For older teenagers and university graduates the emphasis is on teaching them skills to develop into independent, confident and respectful adults. When we focus solely on academic achievement, it is easy to forget that personal presentation and social confidence are just as vital in setting young people on the road to success.
Do you want to be able to bring your child along to social events safe in the knowledge that they will behave appropriately? Imagine never again having to nag them to hold their knife and fork correctly or to write thank you cards for birthday gifts. For children, knowing what is expected of them in any given social situation fosters a sense of security and confidence that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
Our age-appropriate courses for children aged 6-12 are informative, interactive and, above all, fun. Topics covered usually include table manners, everyday social settings, formal events and correspondence etiquette, but each course can be tailored to suit your children’s individual requirements.
