Junior Manners Cotillion caters to parents who want to give their children a competitive edge.

Social skills, manners, and etiquette are bedrock on which all other skills are built. The earlier a child establishes this foundation, the more confident and self-assured they will become. It is the greatest gift you can give your child.

From early childhood until they leave home, children have  precious little time to learn all they need to know. As parents, we do everything we can to educate our children academically, but quite often we neglect to provide them with some of the most critical tools for success.

According to recent studies by Harvard University, Stanford research Institute, and the Carnegie Foundation, social skills are directly responsible for an individual’s success in getting a job, keeping a job, and being promoted. Teaching “please” and “thank you” is good, but not nearly enough to standout in today’s competitive world. However, as parents we seldom have time to teach more than the basics.

The programs we offer are “Treasured Times” because they instill the values and qualities that private schools, universities, and employers seek. They are also treasured  because of the memories made. Former students frequently return and reminisce about time spent in Cotillion.

If you are a parent who values this training and wants to give your child the competitive edge, we invite you to select the program that’s right for you.
