"“This is an invaluable, holistic and thorough overview of the Montessori method with wonderful practical guides on how to implement the approach. Highly recommended for parents, teachers or anybody with an interest - whatever their knowledge level”.

- Mrs Z (attendee of Montessori workshop; Malaysia)

"I'd fully recommend Nusayba's courses. She is very thorough and clearly very passionate about what she does. She is also very helpful in answering questions. It's such a blessing to have someone giving us the Islamic perspective on Montessori education. I look forward to hopefully doing more courses with her".

- Sarah (Home-educating parent: U.K)

"This course has given me so much more than what I expected. I learnt aspects about Montessori and education that I have never found in any books before. It also answered some of my deepest questions about learning and children development. I would recommend this course to any Muslim parents that are interested to find an Islamic and holistic approach to your children's education".

- Nazihah (Home-educating parent; Malaysia)

"I think this course is recommended to all parents especially parents-to-be because Montessori provides a holistic education which covers all the things that our child need for their development which are very important for their future. I learned a lot of things through this training. The explanation was very clear and also the live session was being saved at the facebook group so that we can watch it even after 5 years time 😍 I'm looking forward to attend the next training session".

- Nisa (Montessori teacher in training; Malaysia)

My name is Zaynah and I currently work in a Montessori nursery but am not studying Montessori. And so I found this course very beneficial and eye-opening. I have always struggled with identifying the relevance of the current school system and curriculum so introducing the Montessori philosophy is very interesting to me and seems to be much more relevant and actually revolves around the children. Also as a Muslim woman it has allowed me to look at how I would like to raise my own children inshAllah. I gained so much more knowledge and insight from this course than I was expecting and it was a very enjoyable experience for me.
