You’re Not Alone ~ A Message from Our Founder
I see you and I hear you. I can relate to you! As the Founder of Nurtured Inspirations and the creator of our e-book library designed for parents and educators, I’m sharing with you over 32 years of educational expertise.
Starting my career as an educational volunteer, and working toward becoming an educational assistant, I extended that learning with two undergraduate degrees, several specialist qualifications, and course work toward a Master of Education degree. Having had the opportunity to work as a teacher serving children and families in three boards of education, serving as research lead-teacher studying student thinking and learning with the Ontario Ministry of Education Literacy and Numeracy Secretariat, and studying early years learning in Reggio Emilia, Italy, I’m here to continue the learning and dialogue alongside you!
It’s not easy to know how best to support children’s holistic growth and well-being. How do we create responsive environments that guide, nurture, and inspire children? It can be challenging and sometimes overwhelming to know whether our encounters with children are rich enough, open-ended enough, or thought-provoking enough to foster the development of our youngest of learners.
We might wonder, how do we honour and celebrate the cultural, historical, and linguistic diversity that exists among the children, their families, and our community? Where do we go to find rich resources, inspiring ideas, and sparks for dialogue and reflection? It’s expensive to seek out professional development, cover the costs of travel in order to participate, and often inconvenient to pick up and leave our families behind while we pursue our desire for continued learning and pedagogical connections. How do we keep up with our own desire for learning, the ever-changing landscape of early childhood education while being cognizant of the cost it takes to do so?
Nurtured Inspirations is the newest inspirational collective in education. Our website is created for educators and parents who build relationships, guide, nurture, inspire, and learn alongside children. It is through a common philosophy that we embrace and honour children as competent, capable, and full of possibilities and seek ways to empower children to connect meaningfully to their most authentic and purposeful selves.
Founded by Susan Wright, a seasoned teacher with more than 32 years in education, this company was built from her heart as a way to support, inspire, and empower children, parents, and educators. Susan believes that through our encounters with children we create something bigger than ourselves. As a way to support parents and educators, Nurtured Inspirations was created to provide unique ways to enhance children’s development and holistic well-being. We’ve created many unique, practical, and easy-to-use resources that parents and educators can use in day-to-day interactions with children both at home, and in traditional and non-traditional school learning environments.
