Fun, Relaxed “School” Provides Lesson in Dining Etiquette for Children
Lakewood, N.J., Mar. 16, 2009—Back by popular demand! Nanny Rose and her domestic Olivia return to GCU with their lessons on how to teach children to eat without their elbows on the table. In this delightful 90-minute program, your young ladies and gentlemen can learn proper manners and etiquette for dining at private or public affairs in a relaxed, entertaining atmosphere. The Nanny Rose School of Etiquette will have two weekend performances: Saturday, April 4, and Sunday, April 5, both at 1:00 p.m. in the Mansion on GCU’s Lakewood campus.
According to emilypost.com, children aged 4 to 7 can be expected to
- sit at the table with family.
- help set and clear the table (with assistance).
- participate in table conversation.
- use table utensils.
- serve and pass dishes.
- chew with the mouth closed.
If you’re not seeing this at your table, Nanny Rose might just be the ticket to a peaceful and enjoyable family dinner.
This program is appropriate for children ages 5 to 12. Take advantage of this returning opportunity to have the children in your life learn proper etiquette. Tickets are $15 per child and $10 per adult, which includes the interactive performance and a light lunch. Reservations are required.
