Parents it’s here! You no longer need to nag your children about good manners or search for kid etiquette tips to give them! The Berkshire School of Etiquette in Lenox is kicking off a new six-week Dining Etiquette and Social Graces program this month … and you won’t want to miss this.
Teaching Manners, Etiquette and Social Graces
The program is geared towards children in grades one through five looking for a new level of confidence in an engaging and fun atmosphere. With food at every lesson, a beautiful theme-based table setting, humor, tricks and providing kid etiquette tips to participants, it’s a win-win for everyone.
Join in the fun beginning Oct. 14, 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. and running consecutive Wednesdays through Nov. 18. Children will experience tremendous growth in poise and self-confidence, develop new friendships and explore a local Berkshire venue over a five-course dining experience and will be awarded a Certificate in Etiquette at the conclusion of the lessons.
The six-week program fee is $215 and will take place at 69 Church St., in Lenox. Visit berkshireschoolofetiquette.com to register. For more information contact Diane Massey, Director, (845) 325-2247
About Berkshire School of Etiquette
Berkshire School of Etiquette aims to empower individuals with the knowledge and skills of modern day etiquette to take action with confidence, in a spirit of cooperation and awareness of others, every day in every way.
Throughout life, we, as children and adults, grow and develop when we encounter opportunities and face challenges in our interactions. In an ever-changing world, driven by more technology and less face-to-face interaction, we are called upon to act with civility and respect at home, in school and in the workplace. Simple rules of etiquette and protocol, in the past viewed as stuffy and rigid, are big business and on the radar screen again.
Parents, as two-income wage earners, have less time to teach and instill good manners in children. Our schools and communities seek ways to enhance character development and eradicate bullying by providing children with simple “kid etiquette tips” in our programs.
Businesses and corporations, looking for ways to gain a competitive edge in a global economy, train new hires and executives in business protocol to increase productivity, encourage cooperation among employees and customers and to enhance profitability. Restaurants and clubs seek to maximize wait staff service with etiquette training for stellar customer experience and increased revenue.
