Founded by Susan

As the Founder of Nurtured Inspirations, Susan Wright created this space for parents, homeschoolers, and educators looking for ideas and resources to help them inspire everyday play, art, and nature experiences to children. With a focus on nurturing a sense of calm and well-being in children, the Nurtured Inspirations community was created to support nurturers grow and learn alongside their children.

Susan has visited learning spaces in Canada, the United States, and Italy to study early childhood theory and to discover how best to nurture, guide, and inspire children through play, art, and nature.

We Do

Nurtured Inspirations

WHY YOU AND I
ARE INSPIRED TO DO WHAT WE DO

Inspiration is empowering in that it reconnects us to our hearts and that which resonates through our soul. Sometimes appearing unexpectedly, inspiration ignites a passion from within. Through our shared passions with those around us, as well as the spaces, materials, and experiences we encounter, sparks of curiosity, wonder, and new ideas emerge and unravel. We become inspired.

Just like us, our children find inspiration through everyday encounters. They bond with others and begin to see that they are connected to something bigger than themselves. Just as we do, children find meaning and purpose in life and continue to seek out and connect with others in ways that matter most. It is through others that we come to know ourselves. Our human connectedness reminds us of our why and gives meaning to the bigger picture of our lives. Together, our dialogue and experiences help light each of our pathways through life.

Through our engagement and the experiences we share with our children, parents, homeschoolers, and educators bring to the world an opportunity for a new generation of hope, love, and joy. It is through our everyday moments, creative spaces, intriguing materials, shared experiences, and connected relationships that we offer to children the foundation for an enriched human experience. Shaping who they are, the relationships and experiences we share with children matter not only to their own human spirit but to the spirit of the world. It is through children that we become the difference makers we were meant to be. This is why we are inspired to do what we do.

You’re not alone ~
A Message from
Our Founder

I see you and I hear you. I’ve been where you are! I know how challenging it can be to try to figure out how to put all the pieces together in order to support the unique needs of each of your children. To support your journey as a parent, homeschooler, or educator, I’ve created the Nurtured Inspirations community to bring you uncomplicated ideas to help you nurture, guide, and inspire a sense of calm, and a love for play, creativity, and nature.

As someone who always loved being with children (think big sister, babysitter, volunteer, tutor), I became a teacher assistant and quickly realized this would become my career! A couple university undergraduate degrees and course work toward a Master of Education degree, I began my teaching career over three decades ago. This work led me to a research position with the Literacy and Numeracy Secretariat of the Ministry of Education and my local board of education where I had the privilege of studying children’s work, play, and learning. To this day, I work with children each day learning from children in our shared early years space.

My love for learning continues with Specialist Qualifications, Additional Qualifications, and an endless list of professional training and certificate courses and programs. I’ve had the privilege of travelling to study The Reggio Emilia Approach and early years learning in Reggio Emilia, Italy. To this day, I continue my on-going studies and learning alongside a dedicated group of thinkers facilitated by a world-renowned Pedagogista from Reggio Children.

As a way to share my experiences and understandings with you, Nurtured Inspirations was born. It is here that I dedicate myself to you and your children by creating resources to support all you do each and every day as parents, homeschoolers, and educators. It is with gratitude that I embrace you and remind you that you are not alone. Welcome to Nurtured Inspirations.
