We are a part of something bigger than ourselves, something that matters to children, to families, and our communities. By wondering, asking questions, and being open-to-learning, we provoke curiosity, new thinking, and innovation in the world. Together, our dialogue creates the foundations for greatness and the opportunity to enhance the learning journey of ourselves, our children, their families, and the world!

You’re Not Alone ~
A Message from
Our Founder

I see you and I hear you. I’ve been where you are! Welcome to Nurtured Inspirations. As the Founder of Nurtured Inspirations and the creator of our extensive eLearning platform designed for parents and educators, I’m sharing with you over 32 years of educational expertise, a heart-driven passion for childhood and the holistic growth and learning of children.

Starting my career as an educational volunteer, then an educational assistant over thirty years ago, I quickly realized my deep passion for nurturing children in life, learning, and education. After completing two undergraduate degrees while working in the classroom as an assistant, and tutoring children outside of school, I embarked on several specialist qualifications, and course work toward a Master of Education degree after which time I began full-time teaching. It was everything that I dreamed it would be and more!

Over the course of my 32 year (and counting) career, I’ve had the tremendous opportunity to work as a teacher serving children and families in three boards of education.I’ve worked in classroom and was a co-researcher and research lead-teacher studying student thinking and learning with the Literacy and Numeracy Secretariat of our Ministry of Education. 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, explorations and learning alongside a dedicated group of thinkers facilitated by a world-renowned Pedagogista from the famous and well-respected Reggio Children. This extraordinary experience has been a major influence in the development of my own holistic approach to early years education. Dedicated to sharing opportunities for further engagement, thinking, dialogue, and reflection, I’ve created Nurtured Inspirations. It is through this global online learning platform that I share with you all that I have discovered and all that I continue to question, wonder, think, and learn as an active practitioner co-constructing learning and research alongside children, families, educators, and our global community as it relates to learning in the early years.
