Embrace the Montessori way
Shift from frustration and challenges to opportunities for growth and confidence in your child's toilet learning journey
When it comes to toilet learning, it's normal to feel a bit overwhelmed.

Demystify toilet learning
It's more natural than you think!
Toilet learning can seem like a nerve-wracking milestone for parents. But it doesn't have to be a series of trials and tribulations. With the right support and guidance, it can be a journey filled with growth, celebration, and confidence-building moments.
Our course brings you practical insights from the Montessori method, a child-centered educational approach that fosters independence, self-confidence and a positive body image.
The Montessori approach
Your Child's Path to Confidence and Independence
Imagine if toilet learning wasn't just about "training" but about supporting your child's journey to independence. The Montessori approach to toilet learning is exactly that – a way to help children understand their bodies, develop self-confidence, and grow independently.
In this detailed 4-hour course, we'll guide you through every step of the toilet learning journey, starting from birth. Yes, that early! You'll discover how to set the stage for success, use effective communication tools, handle any setbacks or accidents, and much more.
The course includes 13 comprehensive lessons covering all aspects of toilet learning the Montessori way. Plus, as a bonus, you'll receive an insightful presentation on Elimination Communication.
We don't train children to use the toilet.
We support them when they are ready.
This course isn't just about toilet learning - it's about understanding my child's development and supporting them in the best way possible. The live Q&A sessions were incredibly helpful and gave me a chance to ask my specific questions.
The course material is comprehensive and easy to follow, and the unlimited access allowed me to learn at my own pace. Best of all, the results speak for themselves - we've made so much progress.
Emily and Leila are not only knowledgeable, they're empathetic and understanding. They made the toilet learning process feel natural and achievable. I've seen a significant boost in my child's confidence since we started.
