Embrace the Magic of Childhood

Inspired Family Day Care was established in response to the voices of Families and Educators seeking a more natural and challenging experience of childhood for their children. It is founded on the belief that all children deserve a childhood filled with wonder and adventure.

Come Play the TimberNook Way

In 2018, we became the first Australian Providers for the internationally renowned Nature Play program "TimberNook". Typically, TimberNook children get dirty! We encourage children to challenge themselves and to take thoughtful risks. Each experience is unique to the location, provider, and group of children, and includes free play in sensory-rich learning environments to further enhance play schemes.

Consultancy and Support

While our passion lies in nature based education and the importance of play in high quality environments, 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. 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 offer a wide range of support and consultancy services for education and care services. We have a range of support services available both in person and online. We love working with services and educators to help them be the very best that they can be, and to overcome challenges in a meaningful way.

We look forward to working with you!

The heart of it all

Everything we do is done from the heart. We choose each item in our store personally and with our customers in mind. Items are carefully wrapped and packed by Anna in our office, and we love including special notes and extra surprises at times!

How are we helping the planet?

We seek out resources that are sustainably and ethically made. We work with local stockists and suppliers to reduce travel impacts on the planet. All of our orders are wrapped in recyclable paper and shipped in compostable bags.

How is my order shipped?

Orders are shipped via courier and you will receive a tracking number when your order is on it's way. Our standard turnaround time is 1-2 weeks. 

We are committed to a sustainable planet!

We do a lot of printing. In fact, every year between September and January we print over 1000 Reflective Journals! So, we are offsetting our printing through PrintReleaf - we print for you, and they plant trees for us!

To the right is a tracker which shows our printing and the number of trees that have been planted as a result!

Acknowledgement of Country

We would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we work, live and play to produce this content, the Awabakal people.

We feel privileged to share this land and the knowledge that is held within it. We pay our respects to Aboriginal elders past, present and emerging.

We commit to working in partnership with Aboriginal communities and to inspiring and supporting those in the early childhood profession to do the same.

We hope that you also identify, connect and respect those who have looked after the land you are on for tens of thousands of years.

We acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded.
