Children's Dining Etiquette - Prep for the Holidays Workshop Register View Cart

Holidays are a stressful time of year and we can all use a little help to brush up on our etiquette, especially children.  The aim of this workshop is to teach children how to convey confidence, courtesy and be self-reliant in any social or dining situation.

During this workshop the students will learn the following:
- The importance of greeting others

- Proper introductions
- Respecting dress codes
- Behaving appropriately at other peoples' homes
- Making appropriate conversation
- and using "please" and "thank you".

We will also cover proper dining etiquette and table manners including:
- American and Continental
- Dealing with problem foods
- Passing food at the table
- Proper way to eat bread & soup
- Interacting with servers
- excusing yourself and much more!

Some food items will be served during in-person class so that the children can practice what they learn.  Dietary restrictions can be accommodated.

About New England School of Protocol
New England School of Protocol aims to give every individual a strong foundation in social graces, dining etiquette and interpersonal skills. Our goal is to empower them with confidence and propel them towards personal and professional success. Communication is the most important key to leadership success. However research shows that in today’s age of social media, with a decrease of face-to-face conversations, interpersonal skills are on the decline. Social norms may have changed over time, but the basic rules of social protocol and manners have stayed the same. A person who has well refined social skills conveys confidence. This can create an appealing differentiator that sets himself or herself apart. At New England School of Protocol we aim to instill life skills, social consideration, and mutual respect as we believe that etiquette leads to civility in the home, school, and in the society that we live in.
