The Inspired Family Day Care Story

Back in around 2013, our Inspired EC co-founders Tash and Nicole, were presenting a workshop on risky play at a conference. The audience of Family Day Care educators loved the content of the workshop, but their number 1 comment - our scheme won't let us do that. While Tash and Nic's initial response was 'pester your scheme!' (with the knowledge and research to back you up, of course!), the question came at them 'why don't you start a family day care scheme?' It wasn't the first time that someone had suggested this, and it wouldn't be the last. Tash and Nic reflected on what it could look like to develop a family day care service that was committed to supporting educators to explore their natural environments and communities, to encourage healthy risk taking, and to embrace the uniqueness of each educator, home and community. In 2014 - Inspired Family Day Care was born and the team couldn't be prouder of what has been created. We now have educators in NSW, QLD, ACT and VIC, with hundreds of children reaping the benefits of a magical childhood.
