The Winter Holidays are perfect for Magical Memories - especially for children! Give yours a cherished experience that also builds social skills, confidence, poise, leadership and self-esteem.
"Home for the Holidays with Mrs. Layeni" is the winter program of The Yellow Rose Junior Cotillion. It is open to boys and girls between ages seven and 17. And, because it is held during such a special time of the year, we will end with a beautiful soiree!
Amidst fresh flowers, fine china and crystal in an elegant setting, your child will learn the rules of etiquette, personal protocol and social grace from a credentialed etiquette expert. Your child may participate in the half-day or full-day program, with a fun craft daily for our full-day participants.
Mrs. Layeni's classes are authentic, impactful, and fun! Students have a ball mastering their growing worlds through role playing, discussion, hands-on activities and more.
Manners, poise and constant use of social etiquette remain important, and are the centerpiece of our curriculum. While Mrs. Layeni teaches the art of the "thank you" letter, she also instructs her 21st-century students on today's modern world issues: bullying, online reputation management, digital etiquette, peer mentorship and cultural/diversity understanding.
Key topics include:
Great First and Lasting Impression – posture, confidence, handshakes, eye contact, grooming and attire
Manners and Etiquette at Home - respect for authority, interacting with siblings, roles and responsibilities
Manners Outside the Home – school etiquette, church etiquette, courtesy in public places, sportsmanship and friendships
Digital Diplomacy – email and phone manners and social media dos and don’ts
Parties and Playdates – invitations and replies, host and guest dos and don’ts, conversation skills, gift giving and receiving, thank you notes, remembering names
Dining Etiquette– navigating the place setting, napkin dos and don’ts, eating difficult foods, using utensils and chopsticks, dining conversation and polite dining.
Attire: Girls may wear dresses or collared shirts/polos with trousers. Boys may wear collared shirts/polos with trousers. No flip flops or t-shirts.
Camp will culminate with a holiday party, during which the children will practice the table manners and social skills they’ve learned during the week.
