Etiquette & Social Skill Classes for Children

As of August 18, 2021 our children's program is on hiatus for an undetermined amount of time.

Children who have good manners are more likeable, comfortable and confident. But, often, children need to hear from a third party that manners matter in order to start practicing them. Clise Etiquette teaches and reinforces the manners and social skills your children need to succeed socially and, later, professionally. Your children will learn important skills that help them to be poised, polished and polite whether they are interacting online or in-person.

Five Day Online Class for Children Ages 8 to 13

Modern Manners for Modern Children

Keep the kids busy while they learn important social skills and manners online. The classes are Monday through Friday one hour long and are conducted via Zoom.

Topics include:

  • Why manners, courtesy and respect matter
  • Online manners
  • Meeting and mingling
  • Conversation skills
  • How to make and be a good friend
  • Dining etiquette and table manners

Class fee: $90 per child

Class Dates and Times:

Set-up Requirements:
A stable internet connection and a PC with a camera and audio capability. If siblings from the same household are attending the class we prefer each child sign in on a different device, if possible, so that each child can participate and be seen easily. But, this is not a requirement to register.

Testimonials

Leo really enjoyed your class, and we enjoyed getting to hear about all the things he learned! We are looking forward to future "lessons" from him. It was a wonderful experience.
Melissa Cranmer
I wanted to write this email to let you know how much I enjoyed your online etiquette class! I've learned so much this week from your classes and I can't wait for quarantine to be over so I can show off my new manners. I wanted to say how thankful I am to you for helping me become a better person all in one week.
Camila
Celia really, REALLY enjoyed yesterday’s session. She came down to my office to introduce herself as part of her homework. She was beaming with confidence. In fact, she was so inspired by the class she's now reading a book called “The New Etiquette” that my mom gave me; published in 1940. Thank you for the impact you’ve had on our little lady.
Colin Chapman
I wanted to tell you that you're etiquette classes are great! I have been able to learn so much from your classes. Thank you for all your help.
Riya
On behalf of Ellie and Lucy, I wish to thank you very much for the outstanding job in presenting good manners, etiquette and introductions as well as many other interesting tidbits, one of which I didn't know. The girls really enjoyed this adventure.
Marcy Rice
Thank you so much for a wonderful class. Rosalie enjoyed it thoroughly, and has taught us many finer points of dining and social etiquette, which pleases me so much. I think she has shared some good habits with us that her dad did not even know! It's the ripple effect of your work.
Anne Livingston
I signed my son up for the Children's Etiquette Class so he could have an experience focused on table manners outside of our home. Given the class was not a soccer camp he was not inclined to participate. However, he found the class very enjoyable, and I was delighted to hear of all the other areas covered, such as thank you cards and manners at social settings. At the end of his two-day session, he came home and wrote a Thank You to his cousin AND said he wants to go back next year!
Christi DeCuir
Thank you so much for a great class. Both of my boys were so happy after the class. Full of stories and even asked if they could go to the second one!
