“Can I come to this class again?” This a common question asked by kids who attend a table manners class!   Having fun is what learning manners is all about.  While still young, children are very receptive to learning manners from anyone but their parents.  Adelie School of Protocol, LLC in Durham, New Hampshire has a proven track record having instructed over 500 students.  100_5040Small groups are very effective with hands-on instruction while dining over a multi-course meal. Shirt and tie, nice dress and big appetite is all that’s needed to attend a table manners class.  Looking for an opportunity for your son/daughter to feel extra special and gain confidence?  Just let them have a few hours alone with their peers in a fancy restaurant and when you pick them up, be ready for them to chew your ear off! Table conversation and questions abound from “What if I don’t like salad?” to “Do I have to hold my fork in my right hand, if I’m left handed?” You think it, they ask it.    Once they attend a table etiquette class, they’ll be ready to “show-off” their newly acquired manners.

Manners on the Go – Homeschool Group has Breakfast Etiquette

Manners on the Go – Homeschoolers  learn table manners

Mary L.  Caulfield and Armida A. Geiger, certified etiquette instructors from the Adelie School of Protocol in Durham, New Hampshire take their table manners class on the road to Milton, New Hampshire.   A wonderful group of home-school children doned their finest and each student toted a complete china place setting including utensils, beverage glasses and linen napkin.  The two hour class was a combination  of  table etiquette and everyday social manners for children ages 6-12.  Parents stepped right up and volunteered to cook and serve the brunch menu. Wearing white shirts and black slacks, they played the part of server and everyone had a great time.  Eggs strata, french toast and fresh fruit cups were  some of the 5-course menu items.
