GOOD MANNERS LAST A LIFETIME
When good manners become part of the daily routine of children, they grow up being gracious, considerate to others, and most important they never feel the embarrassment that many adults experience when encountered in social functions or in front of a formal table setting.
In our TABLE ETIQUETTE classes your child will learn the norms that dictate how to properly behave during a formal, semi-formal or informal meal.
