All of our online programs are self-paced, but they do have a maximum study period, as follows:
The Wonder Weeks E-Program for Parents and Caregivers:
It is estimated that our e-Program will take around 30 hours to complete (based on 2 hours of study per chapter). We offer you a maximum study period of 1001 days to complete the program (from conception to your baby’s 2nd birthday). This is because research shows that the first 1001 days of your baby’s life are the most critical to their lifelong development and we want to support you every baby step of the way. This also offers you the option to complete each leap chapter of the program just before your little one makes that leap. Meaning you have the right information at the right time… and helping you to make the leap with your baby!
Foundation Program for Professionals:
It is estimated that our Foundation Program will take around 30 hours to complete (based on 2 hours of study per chapter). We offer you a maximum study period of six months to complete the program. We believe this will allow you plenty of time to work through the program, and to comfortably study one chapter per week (approx. 2 hours) well within this time if you wish to evenly spread your study time over a longer period.
Extended Program for Professionals:
It is estimated that our Extended Program will take around 20 hours to complete (based on 2 hours of study per chapter). We offer a maximum study period of six months to complete the program. We believe this will allow you plenty of time to work through the program, and to comfortably study one chapter per week (approx. 2 hours) well within this time if you wish to evenly spread your study time over a longer period.
Advanced Program for Professionals:
Our Advanced Program is personally taught by our Head Instructor in Scotland. The program is delivered over a two day period and offers professionals the special opportunity to observe how The Wonder Weeks material can be applied in practice.
If you have any questions about the program you can always contact a member of the teaching support team via messages in your profile. They will answer your query within two working days, often sooner.
Our end of chapter quizzes are designed to help you consolidate your new knowledge, while our reflective practice exercises offer you the opportunity to consider how your new insights can be applied in the real world… either as a parent or professional. Our multiple-choice quizzes are mandatory in all of our programs and require a 70% pass mark (But don’t worry, you can attempt each quiz more than once if you need to).
Our reflective practice assignments are also mandatory in all our programs, but we only mark assignments completed by professionals studying our Foundation and Extended Programs. This is to help early year’s professionals to develop this valuable skill and grow. Our programs are specially designed using Kolb’s (1984) Experiential Learning approach, characterized by an integrated process of experience, reflection, conceptualization, and experimentation. Experiential learning has proven to be a powerful learning approach that helps professionals to develop the enhanced skills and competencies that they need for effective real-world practice.
A member of the teaching support team will review your reflective practice exercises after every fifth chapter. We will always aim to keep these review periods as brief as possible, but we would kindly ask you to allow us up to two working days to complete their review and return your feedback.
We have a dedicated technical support team committed to keeping our programs running smoothly night and day. If you have a technical problem simply click the ‘Contact Us’ button at the top of your profile and submit your message to our technical team. We will endeavour to help you as soon as possible, but would appreciate your patience in allowing us up to two working days to address the issue.
No. This is because there is a check-in review after you complete every fifth chapter of these programs, which may take up to two working days to complete.
Our programs are progressively designed to allow professionals to continue their professional development at a pace and level that suits their individual learning needs. Our Foundation Program is the cornerstone of our professional programs and allows us to ensure that all professionals attain the same foundational level of empirical knowledge and understanding about neurodevelopment from womb to Wonder Weeks, before moving on to a higher program of study with us. That is also why our comprehensive Foundation Program has been awarded CPD approval by the British Psychological Society.
Once you complete the final chapter of the program your coursework will be checked and verified. This final review process can take up to two working days to complete, but will be kept as brief as possible. We will then send you a personal Graduation Invitation via email which will allow you to collect your Certificate of Achievement and Graduate Badge. You will also receive free Graduate Membership of the Wonder Weeks Academy and join our worldwide professional alumni family.
Our programs are especially designed with either parents and caregivers, or professionals in mind. To ensure that parents and caregivers are given the opportunity to access similar information as professionals, we have integrated some of the material from our Foundation and Extended Programs in to our Wonder Weeks e-Program for Parents and Caregivers. Therefore there is some overlap in program content.
However, our professional programs offer extra benefits, including a Certificate of Achievement and Graduate Badge that graduates can displayed on their professional CV, website, business cards, social media pages, and any medium which showcases their work. Our Foundation Program is also CPD Approved by the British Psychological Society and their logo appears on this program certificate. Therefore, we would strongly advise professionals to enrol on our professional programs so that their studies can be professionally acknowledged, and recommend that parents and caregivers enjoy the educational benefits of the Wonder Weeks e-Program at a much lower cost.
Yes. We can offer discounts to organizations who wish to enrol several members of staff on the same professional program. Please contact and we will tailor a discount to your organization’s needs.
