Boot Camp for Children
Age Groups:
6-7 &8-12

A one- or two-day Boot Camp for children in the heart of London

Manners, for children, can sometimes be perceived as a bunch of rules that someone has made up just to make them feel miserable.    At our academy, learning about manners and etiquette is fun, interactive and, at the same time, educational.

Our course aims to give children a certain kind of freedom  - just as playing a musical instrument or a team sport there are specific rules to follow, it's those rules that allow children the freedom to really enjoy what they are doing.     It's the same with Manners; they help children learn how to fit in socially - at home, at school and in public. Manners help children know what to say, when to say it and even how to say it, whether they are talking to their peers, parents, or teachers.

 

Manners are like superpowers, except anyone can have them.  And the more children practice Manners, the quicker they become second nature.

I am definitely going to do the adult courses!!! Flynn (6 years old) went to bed saying 'I want to go to that course again tomorrow'. I did not expect to stay the whole day. Thank you, it was amazing!!"

"Laura, thank you very much for the bootcamp today. I heard it went really well and Zach (8 years old) really enjoyed it. He was also explaining why putting your hands in your pockets is not good manners! He also wants to know whether he can come back and do some more courses."
