One of the most challenging issues facing international children moving to London, or having already relocated to the City, is learning how to make new friends, fit into a new school and subsequently excel in their early years.
Children thrive on boundaries and being taught from a very early age the appropriateness of their behavior, particularly in public. This can be difficult for parents even in their country of origin but, coupled with the move to a new country, it can often feel like an overwhelming task.
One of the biggest concerns for parents when deciding to make the move to a new city is how their children will cope and whether they will be happy. It is essential for children to integrate as quickly as possible to secure this outcome and this is most likely to be done through play dates, birthday parties and visiting friends, but often without their parents present.
These courses provide children with the social skills they need to build strong self-esteem and delightful confidence. There will be ample opportunity for children to ask questions in a relaxed and fun atmosphere and light refreshments will be provided to enable the children to practice their new English dining etiquette skills.
