Is Plan It Out For You?

You're a homeschooler who wants to bring Waldorf to your family. 

And you want a clear plan of action in order to bring the lively arts to life.

What you don't want is to spend tons of time obsessing over which curriculum to buy or story to read.

And if you have more than one child in more than one grade!? 

It's enough to make a mother go out and buy dull, boring workbooks! (Or stay up until 2am searching and searching.)

  • Are you tired of too many late nights searching and searching for what to do for your next main lesson block?

  • Do you wish you could create a solid plan that feels complete yet flexible?

  • Are you feeling overwhelmed and unsure where to begin, or how to piece it all together in an organized fashion?

Join Me For Plan It Out

and prepare for your homeschool lessons in just a few weeks

In this simple group coaching program, I walk you through the six steps to planning your year or upcoming blocks that I created for myself during my almost 25 years of homeschooling three children (two boys, and a girl).

You can work through the lessons at your own pace, on your own schedule. (My suggestion? Do two lessons a week for three weeks.

Plus, you can join me for all future live run-throughs of the six steps.

For each lesson, you simply watch one or two videos and complete an action step to help you create your unique plan. It's that simple!

Along the way, you get coaching from me and feedback from other Waldorf homeschoolers as you work through these steps.

Plan It Out is a proven, step-by-step system to help you prepare for your Waldorf homeschooling.

FAQs

  • Can I sign up anytime?

    Yes, you can sign up anytime and work through the lessons at your own pace, on your own schedule. You can also choose to participate in any future Live Run-Through which happens each year in June when I take everyone through the steps over the course of 3 weeks, with 2 steps per week.

  • How long is the program?

    That depends on how you want to do it! My suggestion is that you work through the lessons at your own pace (two per week works great) AND participate in the next Live Run-Through. You can also review lessons any time you want. You'll have Lifetime Access to the content and private Facebook Group. That means forever!

  • When are the Live Coaching Calls?

    The Live Sessions are on Thursdays at 4:30 pm Eastern Time (U.S.) during the 3-week Live Run-Throughs.

  • What if I can't make it to the live sessions on Thursdays?

    That's not a problem. You can submit questions ahead of time. And all of the sessions are recorded so you can watch the recordings whenever it's convenient for you right inside the learning platform.

  • Do you offer refunds?

    I am confident that if you do the work in all six lessons, you’ll have a homeschooling plan that's just right for your family. But, I certainly understand the fear of buying something that you can’t fully experience before purchase. So, I do offer a 30-day money-back guarantee: if you complete the entire program, do all the work within 30 days, and still aren't satisfied, just show me your work -- and I will gladly refund your money.

  • How much time should I set aside for this program?

    To work through the six steps, if you do two lessons per week with action steps, you might need about 30 minutes to watch and read the material, and another 30 minutes to an hour to complete the action step for each lesson. That's 2-3 hours per week for the lessons over three weeks time. But of course, you can work through this program however you wish!

  • How long do I have access to the program?

    You have lifetime access to the curriculum and lifetime membership in the private Facebook Group.

  • I've participated in Plan It Out before. Can I join in the coaching calls in future Live Run-Throughs?

    Yes! You are invited to jump back into any Live Run-Through in the future. So in addition to lifetime access to the curriculum and private Facebook group, you can join in again as I walk everyone through the steps every June. If you want to join a future Live Run-Through, just let me know and I can add you to the email list.

    Thank you... Thank you Jean Miller! Your course was so important to our entire family. You continually simplified our plan and always had such a thoughtful, inspired and well balanced answer for every question that we had. I loved how the course was laid out in tiny manageable bites. It was never overwhelming and I previously spent WAY more time worrying and over-thinking than it took me to plan out our entire year. I really liked that we can have our whole year planned and ready to go and then we can enjoy our summer months to really enjoy each other and play without the looming concern of school planning. The plan and ideas we learned held all year. We are able to have a framework that was movable if we needed. The continued community of support was INVALUABLE. Do not hesitate to take this course... it {and dearest JEAN} is worth its {her} weight in homeschooling GOLD! I am signing up for our second year as we speak. Thank you again, Jean... you have made our homeschooling planning process something that I am truly looking forward to this year!

    Jean has created a wonderful program to help tame the whirlwind of planning. Last year was my first time planning first grade and I had such a horrible time trying to figure out where to start and how to stay focused. This year already feels so different, thanks to Jean's course! The videos and calls have been tremendously helpful. I feel confident that I will start the school year prepared. All of my questions have been answered thoroughly. I highly recommend this course to anyone who feels overwhelmed with the homeschool planning process. Thanks so much to Jean for creating such a wonderful course!

    The structure of this course is founded on years of experiential learning, for which there is no replacement. As a beginning homeschooler, I felt at ease with the process. It's hard to imagine how I would have pieced the school year together in such an organized fashion without Plan it Out. The pace of the course is steady and allows for real personal growth. I could not recomend a more complete approach to Waldorf homeschool planning. Jean is so enjoyable to work with- an honest wisdom with a clear passion for learning. Our homeschool plans are deeply enriched, what a blessing.

    I am so thankful I had the opportunity to participate in this course. As a Mom of three preparing to embark on first grade, I leave this course with confidence and a year planned out. We not only created a big picture plan to guide our year, but also sculpted our weekly and daily rhythms. The Facebook group gave opportunity for fruitful daily discussions about the nitty-gritty of home life while schooling. The live calls were my favorite part. I know I am not the only one who left uplifted and significantly less anxious than before the call began. Jean is lovely, helpful, and gives you the confidence you need to do this. I highly recommend!

    I feel that this course fills a need within the Waldorf homeschooling community for a neutral space (not associated with a specific curriculum provider) where people can share the experience of planning their own unique Waldorf year together. Jean brings a can-do spirit and a real knack for helping you find economy in your teaching. I enjoyed the connection built with fellow Waldorf home educators...the live calls bring an energy amongst the group that builds over the 3 weeks, and I think that is immensely helpful in keeping one motivated. Highly recommend!
