Who are we?

Our story began in 2008 when Inspired EC was co-founded by Tash Treveton and Nicole Halton, who had formed an instant connection when they began working together in a preschool room back in 2003.

Our passion lies in nature based education and the importance of play in high quality environments, but 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.

Our scheme was born in 2014 as 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.

Staff and Educators

Since our early days in 2008, we have grown our team and continue to find new and inspiring ways to work with educators, services and parents around Australia and Internationally. We now have a team of passionate people who work together to ensure that educators and services have the best training, support, resources and opportunities. 

Over the last few years, our schedules have become busier and busier. We have travelled all over Australia as well as to New Zealand, The UK, The USA and Asia. While we love visiting services, we recognise that it is simply not possible to effectively support everyone - particularly those in rural and remote locations and so we are constantly evolving to make our services more accessible, and personal. We know that we will be able to connect with even more educators and families in meaningful ways.

Tash Treveton

Co-Founder

Tash is passionate about children having access to natural, risky and engaging outdoor play spaces for children.

We look forward to working with you!

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 have always said that our role in our work is not to provide educators and services with "the answers" but to support them to consider their unique context and engage in research, reflective practice and evolve to meet the needs of the children, families and communities in which they work.
