An overview

What are the benefits of our membership?


Attending a one-off training session or conference is great, but often once the event is over we move on to the next thing, or get dragged back into our work quicker than you can say "how good was that keynote speaker?" 

Instead, we can offer you the opportunity to engage in monthly training and access a hub of information, resources and support, ensuring that you gain momentum in your role. 

With our recurring monthly payment option, your membership will be maintained for as long as you need, with the option to cancel at any time (we get it - not everyone stays in their role forever!)

Every month a new, inspiring module is added to the membership. You can pick and choose which module you start and when!

Join a community where you will be supported and inspired to be the very best educator that you can be. 

Why should you trust us to support you?

In addition to previously working as educators, nominated supervisors and educational leaders, we currently are the approved providers for Inspired Family Day Care and Inspired OSHC, as well as providers of TimberNook Newcastle - Australia's first TimberNook site!

Our passion lies in nature based education, but 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.

This current, practical experience sets us apart - we understand where you are at... because we are right there with you!

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. We have always said that our role in our work is not to provide educators and services with "the answers" but to support them to consider their unique context and engage in research, reflective practice and evolve to meet the needs of the children, families and communities in which they work.

We look forward to working with you.
