No one is more susceptible to being misunderstood than the preschooler – especially when adults are trying to rush them out of their untempered nature, inconsiderate relating, or separation problems. Making sense of these wondrous and confusing beings lays a foundation for intuitive and fruitful interaction with them, and helps us provide the conditions that are conducive to their transformation. (Go to Course Page for full course outline.)


Course participants will view the online recordings from their own computers through our virtual campus and come together weekly as a group to discuss the material using our videoconferencing system. While individuals can take this course at any time on their own through our continuing education program, this is a unique opportunity to meet with others weekly and be supported by a Neufeld Institute Faculty member.

All scheduled online classes are recorded. If you can't fit a live class into your day-time schedule, you can keep up by watching the recording later in the week.

All registrations include four months' access to our Virtual Campus which features Dr. Neufeld's video material, online support, discussion forums, study guides, supplementary resources, and much more.
