Who are we?

Inspired EC was established in 2008 by "professional soulmates" Tash Treveton and Nicole Halton. Both Nic and Tash are experienced speakers, writers, mentors and educators who love what they do and have a whole lot of fun doing it!

We have an amazing team of mentors and administration staff working throughout in NSW, QLD and VIC to ensure every experience you have with Inspired EC is a positive one.

Inspired Natural Play Store

The Inspired Natural Play Store is the resource component of our company Inspired EC. While delivering professional development to educators around Australia, we noticed a gap in the market for quality resources that were sustainable, handmade, ethically sourced or from small Australian businesses. Determined to bridge that gap, we began stocking a range of books and other products. This range is continually evolving and now features many natural toys and products for family life as well as the early education and care profession. We are a small business managed and staffed by women and mothers.

Consultancy and Support

While our passion lies in nature based education and the importance of play in high quality environments, what really sets us apart is our approach to working with early childhood professionals. We do not believe that it is up to us, or anyone for that matter, to give all the answers. We pride ourselves on asking the questions and supporting educators to come up with their own answers. Just as we believe that children are competent, capable learners, able to hypothesise, problem solve and create - the same applies to the adults that we are lucky enough to work with.


Professional Development

We love being able to offer a wide range of workshops and events - both in person and online! Providing courses, interviews, discussions and more, featuring our passionate Inspired EC Team and other amazing thinkers from all over the globe, we offer a HUGE range of workshops and events, in a variety of ways to suit all learners. We pride ourselves on the connections that we form with the educators that we meet and through personalised responses from our consultants, participants will feel the support of a community of learners.
