Dining Etiquette

Kids & Teens

Elevate your child or teen's future success with Poised & Proper's immersive dining courses. For teens, our five-week program combines small-group instruction and role-play, culminating in a practical session at a local restaurant. The three-session course for ages 6-10 focuses on setting the table, using utensils, and mastering table manners. Both courses provide an age-appropriate and enjoyable experience, reinforced by a dedicated student workbook. As a rewarding conclusion, participants receive a Certificate, a valuable asset for future resumes. Prepare your child or teen for a lifetime of confidence and success at any dining table.
