CHILDREN'S SOCIAL SKILLS WORKSHOP
This program is currently unavailable. Click
to view all of our current programs.
Children are the leaders of tomorrow. Present them with the opportunity to feel self-reliant and confident in any social situation by taking interactive lessons taught by a certified etiquette consultant. Our workshop is designed to empower them with life skills that propel them towards personal and professional success. These skills will help them succeed at school, socially, and later, professionally and can create an appealing differentiator that sets them apart. Our lessons aim to instill social consideration and mutual respect as we believe that when children are taught these basic social skills in their early years, they tend to become more socially responsible as they grow up. To survive the rising social pressure, children must be trained in a way to feel confident and comfortable around people and to find their place in the world.
Topics Include: The Importance of Greeting Others, Rules of Introduction, The Handshake, Eye Contact, and the Power of a Smile, Sportsmanship Etiquette, Hygiene and Appearance, Self-Respect and Respect for others, Behaving Appropriately at Other People’s Homes, Making Appropriate Conversation, Proper Telephone Etiquette, Writing Thank You Notes, and Other Modern Manners.

In the event of inclement weather that inhibits activity, you will be notified by email of that day's cancellation as early as possible. Every effort will be made to make up the missed class at the end of the program. During the winter, if Walpole Public School closes due to inclement weather, Recreation Department programs and classes will also be cancelled for the day.
Because the Recreation Department incurs expenses to hire staff, purchase supplies and materials, and contract other expenses in preparation of a program, the department cannot offer full refunds. Full credits may be issued. Partial refunds may be issued upon request, however a 20% administrative fee over the overall program cost will be deducted per registrant. The Recreation Department will not issue refunds for any credit card convenience fees incurred. No refunds or credits will be issued without 48 hours' notice prior to the start of the program.
