The Plaza Hotel Etiquette Program with Children and Teens

The Children’s Etiquette Program

The Plaza Finishing Program’s Children’s Etiquette Course with Beaumont Etiquette is an etiquette class for boys and girls, ages 5 to 9. Children will learn the fundamentals in both dining and social etiquette, including, but not limited to basic table manners, greeting adults with respect, making friends and positive body language and eye contact. In New York City the course is taught in The Plaza’s Eloise Tea Room and is limited to 24 students. The children’s program is $150 per child and includes light refreshments and beverages.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we have cancelled the May 2020 Children’s Course. We will post the 2021 dates as soon as they are confirmed.

The Pre-Teen & Teen Program at the Todd English Food Hall

Young adults, ages 10 to 17, can participate in The Plaza Finishing Program with Beaumont Etiquette with a special course designed for teens. Boys and girls will learn a range of basic etiquette, including dining, dressing, deportment, respect, consideration and kindness and introductions. This modern etiquette class will also cover social media, email and phone communications and event-specific etiquette (family parties, weddings, etc). This course will help teenagers develop confidence and self-esteem. Due to an operations change at the hotel, the course will be held at the Eloise Tea Room with catering from Sarabeth’s and formal dining tables, chairs and tableware from The Plaza. The course is limited to 18 students. Parents are not allowed to attend the class with their child. The teen program is $150 per person and includes lunch.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we have cancelled the May 2020 Pre-Teen and Teen Course. We will post the 2021 dates as soon as they are confirmed. To be added to the Teen Etiquette Course Mailing List please email plaza@beaumontetiquette.com
