IMPROVE YOUR SPACES AT HOME
A four week online workshop that will really help you to focus on improving your spaces at home.
Do you have some ideas about Montessori but get lost where to start at home?
Do you see other people's homes and feel frustrated that yours could do with some improvement?
Are you trying to get your kids to put things away and find interesting activities for them but it's not really working?
Join my Setting Up Your Home Montessori-Style online workshop and we'll address all of those issues and more.
I am passionate about helping you make changes in your home. I've put together a super practical, easy to follow online workshop, perfect for busy tired parents.
And if we work together as a group through this course, we will be able to support each other, give each other ideas, and simplify our homes so we have more time to enjoy with our families.
I'm an AMI Montessori teacher who has been working in the classroom since 2004 running parent-child classes. I love working with both the children and parents and can give you so many tips to help get the kids involved around the house, set up engaging activities, and bring back some calm into your home.
In the last 2 years, more than 850 people from all over the world have followed this course. The feedback has exceeded my expectation. My hope is that you too will join me and benefit too.
"I loved it! Tackling changes to a house can be intimidating and Simone did a great job breaking things down with humor and that great balance of information that inspires instead of overwhelms. I loved the supplemental materials and charts her website provides. I plan on taking any other e-courses she puts out there!! Thank you Simone!" - Frances, USA
"It was absolutely worth taking part! You get new ideas, learn to see everything with fresh eyes, are encouraged to change your spaces for the better!" - Sabine, The Netherlands
"Simone was able to make me dive in the Montessori method with ease. It was just too easy to follow and made it simple! In a complex world, simplicity is needed." - Melissa, USA

"Refreshing course, even for someone pretty acquainted with the Montessori method." - Sandarenu, Belgium
"I already made testimonials to all our friends. A course very easy to follow for the non Montessorians, with lot of visual support, very practical approach and easy to put immediately into practice." - Oana, The Netherlands
"There are so many different approaches out there and Montessori is one I'd heard a lot about without really knowing what the philosophy was based in and how to practically apply it. Going through this program was so eye-opening, supportive, helpful, and gave a ton of practical tips! It was so much fun and so empowering to be part of a truly world-wide community of other parents trying to make their homes engaging and inspiring for optimal learning and independence for children. I learned so much and now have the tools long-term to continue to optimize our environment as our son grows. The combination of the Facebook group, videos, supportive posts, and handouts made it really easy to follow along and chime in anytime. I highly recommend this course!" Deena, USA
"A very refreshing learning experience with no pressure that any parent or caregiver can do!!!" - Theresa, Canada

Frequently Asked Questions
What age children does this course cover?
The materials for this e-course covers babies, toddlers and preschoolers. However, the principles also apply for older children in primary school, so it's never to late to learn how to set up your spaces.
How long is the course?
The course is 4 weeks long but available for you to work through at your own pace. Depending on how much work you have to do on your spaces, I expect it would be a time commitment of around 1.5-3 hours a week. And don't worry if you fall behind - the lessons will be available online to refer back to for an unlimited time.
Can my partner use my login?
Yes, immediate family members are welcome to share a login so you can all benefit from the e-course. However, I ask that you don't share your login details with others.
What format is the e-course delivered in?
Every few days through the 4-weeks you will receive a link to the next lesson. The course is taught through videos, text, inspiring photos, and a step-by-step approach we will apply throughout the course.
Can I get access to all the lessons straight away? Do I have to wait for the lessons to be sent to me?
I actually want you to put the lessons into action. And the best way is to work through a few lessons a week to give you time to really think about each lesson and time to put the ideas into action at home. So you'll be sent a lesson every few days. You won't just think about making changes - you will finally make them happen.
Will you be available during the course to answer my questions?
For the VIP group, we will have a separate Facebook group and I will pop in every couple of days to respond to questions. This group will also benefit from weekly live group calls during the course where you can send in your questions to be answered.
For the regular group, you will have a separate Facebook group where you can learn a lot from people also following the course. And I might just pop in here to surprise you from time to time.
Not sure whether to choose the VIP or regular access? Here's what two VIP students said from the last course:
"The information is so beautifully presented and attainable. I found it a pleasure to participate in. The video calls allowed for wonderful individualised support which helped me create my spaces more than any other readings or online research I've done." - Angela, Australia
"Dear Simone your course is amazing!!!! I am so glad I took the chance with the VIP course. The course has been perfect for me. It is what I was looking for, how to do it at home and also not just the environment but the philosophy taken to our parenting style. Your course is so professional, so concrete and practical, with so many helpful tips. It has been really helpful to watch the video and then read the lesson just exactly as the video!!!! It feels exactly as a Montessori learning experience. It made me feel that it was beautifully prepared for me! It feels from the course that you took care of every detail, every piece of information, the format: your heart and thoughts are there!! Also, meeting new people from around the world made it unique for me!!!! You are such a professional guide and a very warm and respectful person, and I admire you and your work!!" - Rocio, Mexico
