Please consider supporting WMI as we raise funds for a 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 WMI’s Primary Pod, which will be used to support the upcoming 3-6 diploma course in Traverse City, Michigan and future courses. 

To fulfill the remaining needs of our Primary Pod, WMI is raising funds for the necessary shelving, tables, and chairs to provide a fully prepared environment for future trainees on our satellite courses. 

Thank you for considering a gift in support of WMI’s Primary Pod!

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.
