Table Manners for Kids

Sadly, in today’s society children tend to spend more time surfing the Internet than they do practicing polite interaction with others. They are also more likely to wolf down burgers and fries in front of the television than to dine properly at a set table. This workshop thus aims to nurture and teach our young proper and essential western dining etiquette and table manners for both home and when dining out.

Objectives & Methodology

Our courses for children are customized and planned such that the rules on table manners are addressed in a fun, creative, interactive and memorable manner using videos, quizzes, games and more. Children will also have hands-on practice using a fork, spoon and knife. A meal could also be included at an additional fee if desired by school.
