Thank you for considering a gift in support of WMI’s Primary Pod! This innovative mobile Montessori prepared environment for ages 3 to 6 will contain a full complement of Montessori materials and furnishings. Its objective is to make satellite training accessible wherever and whenever needed. We are thrilled to share that, in a unique collaboration, Nienhuis USA and Heutink International have made a generous contribution of materials to this Primary Pod, which will be used to support WMI’s 3-6 diploma course in Traverse City, Michigan and future satellite courses.

We are also grateful to Sprout for their support in providing a furnished environment for this Pod. Together with Nienhius and Sprout, WMI is committed to providing the best hands-on learning experience for all our trainees.

A Trainer’s Perspective:

We asked WMI’s Directors of Primary Training, Jennifer Shields and Naoko Ogawa, to share some of their experiences and perspectives on leading a satellite course and the importance of the prepared environment for trainees.

Why Satellite Training?

We asked three WMI graduates how the opportunity to train through WMI’s satellite courses have impacted them.
