Our online home design projects

create a design for your space and lifestyle,

help you understand what your children need,

and how to support them

 

All you need is a mobile device, an internet connection, and 2 hours of your time. 

 

Together, we'll create a custom plan for your child's ages and needs, which includes:

  • Guidelines for choosing what to keep, what to store/rotate, and what to donate or trash.

  • Picture examples or demonstrations of how to lay out your space

  • Recommendations for tools and supplies.

  • How to facilitate use of the space with your child, including clean-up, setting limits, what “play” looks like, and how to support independence.

  • Age-appropriate expectations and practical advice for daily routines.

  • An estimate of hours for completing the project together.

  • Steps for getting started.

I had thought that it was good for the kids to have lots of things to play with, but it turned out that it was too overwhelming. Things are now well-organized, and both kids have a much better idea of where to find the things they want to play with. And cleaning up is easier because there’s just not as much *stuff*.

How it Works

First, we talk on the phone so I can get to know your family's needs.

I'll ask you a few questions, and offer any resources I can.  Then, we'll choose a day and time for the first visit at your home.

On the first visit, we'll do a walk-through of your home to see what is working well, and determine any changes you'd like to make. 

We'll also talk about your children's needs at this age and I'll answer any questions you have. 

Then, I'll create a custom plan for preparing your ideal space for your family.  

I'll go over any recommended materials to get, how to lay them out, and general guidelines for organizing your space.  

Now you can take on the plan yourself, or schedule working visits to complete the project! 

Enjoy your new space and peace of mind!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can't I just look up how to do this on the web? 

There are plenty of how-tos, checklists and prepared environment examples around the web, and no doubt you could spend hours researching what is best to include in a space for your child now.  Know that there are many, many companies trying to sell you their product as a necessity for parenting! Your child's needs will change over time, and you'll need to complete this research process all over again.  

By working with me on your your project, you'll not only get a tailored plan for your family from a trusted professional, you'll see how to use the space now, and how to adapt it in the future, for just two hours of your time.  

What are the benefits of completing the project with you, instead of doing it ourselves? 

Often, finding the time to organize your space is the biggest hurdle!  Having a organizing partner who can provide a clear head and a fresh set of eyes can mean the difference between a 2 day project and a 2 month one.  I can provide that extra motivation and support to really go through and create a space that truly works. 

Are their lower cost options? 

Check out our Ask an Expert services. I'll provide you advice and insight by phone or video chat.   If cost is truly an issue for you and your family, please let me know. I'll do what we can to work with you in your situation.   

How do I prepare for a visit?

For a first visit, you should do nothing. No cleaning up or tidying! I've been in many family homes, and understand the realities of living with small children. I promise not to pass judgment on your home! Leaving everything as it normally is will better allow me to create a workable flow and practical design for your space.

You'll need a portable device with Skype, Google Hangouts, or another video chat program installed, and an internet connection for our visit.  It's that simple!   

Which areas do you serve? 

Home Projects are available worldwide through Skype or Google Hangouts!  If you'd like me to show up at your doorstep in person, contact me to learn when I'll be in your area or ask for travel rates.  Local in person visits are currently available in the continental US.  

Do you ever wish you had an expert in your pocket when you're not quite sure what to say

(like when your two year old throws her dinner on the floor)?  

Want to start Montessori home-schooling, but you've never taught before? 

Is your child just figuring out how to read, and you (also) hate those BOB books?

Have you been dreading toilet training?  

Is dinner more like a 3 ring circus and you're lucky if you get more than a bite of mac-n-cheese? 
 

 

yes?

Let's make a plan together.

We'll discuss your concerns, and what's going on now.  Then, I'll share my years of insight with you and talk about what's possible.  Book a call for quick answers and plans, or invest in a 6 week mentorship for structure, motivation, and accountability to make a real change. I also do a handful of on-site visits throughout the year which range from 2 days to multiple months at a time.  Those go fast!  

I would be honored to help you make dinner in peace, to empower you to set clear limits, and to teach you all the tricks I know for encouraging independence! Click the "Get Started Now" button and I'll give you a quick call to talk about what makes sense for you and your family, no strings attached!

I read extensively and consider myself well-versed in Montessori Methods and the integration of Montessori principles in the home, yet in a forty-five minute conversation with Leanne, I found myself reeling with wonderment at just how many details I had missed that would truly enrich our son’s home environment.

“Thank you! I quite enjoyed this morning. The chat was very refreshing to me, to speak my mind of my desires and what I know I need in the house, but have it heard by someone who can help guide me there. Thank you!!”
