Thomson House, McGill University

Travel & Accommodation:

Registrants are responsible for their own travel and accommodation arrangements.


The Advanced Intensive on Play builds on the foundation that is laid in these prerequisite courses:

At a minimum, participants must have completed Intensive I and Intensive II. Given the short timeline before the live course in July, we will provide review material for those unable to complete Heart Matters: The Science of Emotion and Play 101 in time. That being said, it is our preference that these courses are taken in their entirety if at all possible.


This course is being hosted by the Neufeld Institute, a nonprofit organization with a world-wide reach, devoted to applying developmental science to the raising of children.


If a course is cancelled due to insufficient enrolment or other unforeseen circumstances, all registrants will have the option of receiving a full refund or credit.

A full refund will be issued for cancellations made prior to 2 weeks before the course starts. Deposits are non-refundable for cancellations made within the 2 weeks prior to the start of the course.
