Carine has such a wealth of information about child development and activities. I love her blog posts and have got a lot out of her parenting and discipline online courses. Our little boy loves his shelf of toys and activities, his own bathroom area and baby-centred bedroom, all thanks to Carine’s advice.


I took part in Carine’s Montessori Parenting course. It was exactly the motivation I needed to get moving with Montessori at home. It gave me great information and direction. The live Facebook calls meant that my questions received instant attention. I really appreciated the time Carine took to do this and I felt like a better Mum and therefore happier! My daughter was and continues to be much more content too and my husband has noticed a calmer house! We are Montessori converts! Thanks Carine!


I thought Carine’s Montessori course was really good! I started of with trying to read blogs here and there but found them to be really overwhelming. Whereas with the course I like how she broke it down into sections and encouraged us to actually make the Montessori changes. Also the handouts were really good especially the one on toys. I’m expecting soon and will definitely be more careful with what toys I’m going to expose the new babies to.


I’ve loved the course. Thank you for running it & for being so passionate about the subject! I really have felt supported – not many people seem to even look into any alternatives to raising children, so it’s things like this that make it more accessible wherever you are in the world & chat with like minded people!


I have found the course so inspiring and so practical – I have easily been able to apply the concepts with your help and guidance. I have now a few new Montessori materials I have got on your recommendation from your hand out. I’m really looking forward to the discipline course and thank you again for the time and care you put into the course it has been such a positive experience for the whole family.
