Frequently asked questions
1. Do I need to attend live?
No, each week you will receive a short video and a prompt for the week to work on. This is something for you to practice during the week as you go about your days. And you will have lifetime access to the course to come back as your child grows.
There are weekly live calls but these will also be recorded and placed in the learning area as soon as they are ready. You will also be able to submit questions if you can't be live on the call.
2. Is it suitable for someone new to Montessori? Is it suitable for someone who has been practising for some time?
The retreat is for beginners through to those who have been practising Montessori for some time who would like a refresher or to go deeper.
The retreat is designed to meet you where you are at. The prompts will introduce you to Montessori ideas for you to put into practice, but the learning will come from trying it out during the week and sharing in the Mighty Networks group what you are learning and, in turn, learning from others.
3. Is there a particular age group?
The topics we cover can be applied to any age child from baby through to teenager. And would also work well for families with more than one child.
4. Will we have access to the program after the 8 weeks?
Yes, you will have unlimited access. The private Mighty Networks group will remain open for an extra month after the course finishes.
You can work at your own pace but you will get the most out of the program by participating in the Mighty Networks community each week.
5. Do I need to join Mighty Networks to participate?
As this is a community-based program sharing with and learning from others, you will benefit the most from this program if you take part in the Mighty Networks community.
6. How much time will it take each week?
The beauty of this retreat is that there is only a small amount to read each week and a short video to watch. The rest is by putting it into practice in your regular week and sharing with the Mighty Networks community. So you can spend 5 minutes a week just watching the video, 20 minutes a week if you read the prompt, or up to a couple of hours if you participate in the calls and the Mighty Networks community.
7. I missed the Early Bird pricing!
I'm sorry if you miss out on the short early bird window which ends promptly on Friday 7 June. But you get to pay full price and that is appreciated too and 20% of the profits will go to Educateurs sans Frontiers.
