National Civility Educational Curriculum for Children

South Carolina's leading protocol and etiquette school and global award winner, The Charleston School of Protocol and Etiquette, Inc., has developed a unique 18-week manners program curriculum that will teach elementary school age children, topics such as introductions, handshaking, table manners and thank you notes . . . to name a few. The curriculum provides interactive lessons and tools needed to facilitate teaching. Manners are such an important part of how a child learns to develop self-respect, character, relationships and leadership abilities. This curriculum will also help children become more self-confident, courteous, and give them the opportunity to master these important life skills. Manners are not just polite actions; they are a reflection of our attitudes. Therefore, when you teach a child manners, you are teaching an attitude, not an action. As a well known saying states, "The manners of today will be the morals of tomorrow".


How the program works:

How this program works is that you buy a one year subscription to this site that allows you access to the lesson plan with handouts, powerpoints and more.

"My name is Phyllis Lowder, director of PACESC,Parent's Association for Christian Education in SC. I am writing today to share with you a program that I am excited and passionate about. Every once in a while, a program comes along that not only teaches our children academically, but also prepares them socially and personally for the future. As we are all aware, we are living in a fast paced and often rude world. Today, manners are often not used...or even taught! The Charleston School of Protocol and Etiquette is presenting "Your Manners Matter" National Civility Program. It is my recommendation that you give possible consideration of this program for the growth of your child."

"I have been very pleased with this program. It is completely thorough and easy to teach. My child is learning easily. Through the use of this program, my shy-never-talk girl is blooming into a confident person. She will interact with store clerks, librarians and other adults politely and with wonderful manners. I've been complimented more than once on her actions. I have this class to thank for her manners."
