What are other educators saying about their time with Members Hub?
I chose to study for my early childhood qualifications and work with young children because I firmly believed that by providing playful early learning opportunities in the early years of a child’s life I could make a difference and help get them off to a good start.
I still believe that. And I’m pretty sure that you feel that way too or you wouldn’t be here reading this.
The Problem Is...
🚫 What we didn’t expect when we first started working as early childhood educators is the amount of paperwork we’d be required to complete each day and how much time this would take us away from engaging with the children and supporting their early learning.
🚫 Not to mention the planning and child observations we take home on weekends so we can ‘catch up’ again before Monday rolls around and the cycle starts all over again.
As early childhood educators, we do a LOT for others.
The children in our care, their parents, our fellow educators, and our leaders.
🚫 Add to that the insane amount of time we spend doing all that paperwork (on our own time): Planning Program writing Documentation
🚫 Frankly, there aren’t enough hours in the day to stay on top of everything at work, let alone tend to our OWN needs and our OWN families. Yep, I’ve been there too 🙋♀️
Expectations continue to grow…
Your Sunday afternoon is spent writing a program of activities that looks good displayed on the wall but in all reality you are only going to get the time to do 1 or 2 of those exquisitely planned gems of early childhood learning because you are going to spend too much time cleaning toilets, emptying rubbish, filling in paperwork to tick off boxes and attending meetings out of hours..
You take frustrations home..…
You have no patience left when it comes time to actually parent your own children or connect meaningfully with your family.
You have to 'catch up' on paperwork at home…
You're an educator who enjoys learning new skills but you feel frustrated trying to find ways to turn the collection of templates, programs and assessments you use into a process that doesn’t require you to give up nights and weekends with your own family.
You have to be super organised with ninja like skills in time management...
It’s often a challenge to know what you should prioritise, where you should spend most of your time, what you should try to get done first or even if what you’re doing is correct.
It might even feel like you never have enough time to just engage with the children & create opportunities for playful learning …you're too busy writing...or cleaning...or figuring out if you're even using the right observation template
So you can see why it's easy to feel like you're always stuck in catch up mode or not doing things the right way.
After all, it’s hard to stay motivated in your role when you often feel bogged down by paperwork, not able to fit everything in and disconnected from the children you’re supposed to be spending all your time with...
You want MORE TIME so that you can once again focus on engaging with the children and providing opportunities and experiences for playful learning...the part of the job you actually love and why you put all that effort into studying early childhood in the first place.
But guess what? It’s not your fault -
you’re not doing everything the wrong way and you can get on top of your planning & paperwork
You just need a few simpler processes and step by step training and support...
Which is why you need the tools and resources to help you get through all those child observations, assessment visits, room setups, forward planning notes, program writing and reflections at lightning speed.
And that time you'll save with those tools at your fingertips will allow you to focus on engaging with the children and encouraging playful learning...the part of the job you actually love.
Sound like something that would be helpful to you?

Why Did I Feel The Need To Create Member Hub?
Because I'm just like you and I've thought about leaving this educator gig too. Actually, I did.
I'd had enough and just couldn't do it anymore. I went back to uni again, got a degree in social work and human services and loved the career change. But I missed the children....missed setting up play experiences....missed feeling like I was making a difference in the early years of a child's life.
But I didn't miss the planning overwhelm, the working on my weekends, the lack of support, the staff cliques, the weekend workshops, the unpaid staff meetings, the uncertainty of knowing if I was doing everything right.
So I decided to come back to early childhood... but this time I was going to do it my way - I was going to embrace different and throw the 'know it alls' into that nappy bin that no one ever wants to empty.
I was going to simplify while still being excellent at my job. I was going to be assertive. And I was going to share this vision with other educators like me.And let me tell you that it's been working out pretty darn well. But I wanted to do more in the online world, I wanted to create a space where you could feel like this too...no matter your role or where you live. And that’s WHY Member Hub is here.
What do current members say after joining?
Is this your space to belong, to be inspired, to get answers to your questions, to become more confident and less stressed as an Educator?

What makes the Member Hub essential for early childhood educators like you?
Everything in One Place
You need different resources at different times and you are busy so you need them quickly! We get that and it's why all you need to do is login online and all training videos, weekly plans, activity guides and more are right there at your fingertips.
Simple Plans & Activities
Planning and documentation is often a source of overwhelm but they don't need to be confusing or complicated! You will save so much time when you can access program planners already completed with activities & linked to learning outcomes.
I Walk the Talk
I know what it's like to be a student, an assistant, a room leader, a coordinator, FDC educator, a director....so the training and tools in the hub come from REAL experience. I know what works...and what doesn’t.
Forget about paying for single training workshops. Members not only have access to a collection of short training videos - you also receive a seat at any live presentations and on demand ‘watch the replay anytime you want’ access .Of course personalised professional development certificates, slide guides and MP3 audio also accompany every workshop.
Playful Learning Focus
All materials, ebooks, training, planners and activity guides have been developed with a play based learning focus at the core. The outside environment is also recognised as an important learning space & included throughout content.
I have no doubt that you are going to find the Empowered Ed Member Hub worth every cent of your monthly subscription when you see how much time and stress it saves you, but if for any reason you decide to leave you can cancel your membership at any time. No hidden fees!

So, I Think Member Hub Looks Like A Good Option For Me….
But….I need my questions answered first...
I hear you, an empowered educator is an informed educator and that’s why I’ve compiled a list of the questions that other savvy educators ask before joining Member Hub... Simply click on the questions below to reveal the answers you need.
Not at all! The Member Hub includes activities, training and plans for educators working with all ages from 0 - 8 years.
There are separate plans for baby & toddler groups, 3-5 years and outside school hours care environments.
There is also a plan for mixed age groups 0-8 years - especially useful for those working in family daycare and homeschooling environments.
YES. I know many educators still prefer to print, write and file rather than use a computer or device so I've spent a lot of time making sure the member hub is easy to use and the resources are a simple click to download to your own computer.
Then you can just print if you prefer to work in hard copies. If you love to work on the computer or device and save on ink and paper then you are also covered! You can save the plans and activity guides then just type into the documents and save, email or upload to the cloud. All you need is an internet connection to log in to your member homepage.
Definitely not! The Member Hub has a play-based learning focus and although there are more structured factsheets and tools for educators to use for your own professional development the printables, activity guides and plans have been created to ensure children become active and engaged participants in their own learning.
Think of the printables as simply tools to invite learning and play - not 'how they must play' or boxes to check off! My aim is to help you find ways to encourage learning through play - whether that is in an outdoor or indoor environment, a centre or home-based environment.
No! That would go against everything I want the Member Hub to be for educators. The idea is you take what you need each week - that might be a plan or an activity idea, perhaps a 15-minute training video on something you are struggling with or maybe it's a checklist to print with aim of helping you organise your observations. There is absolutely no need to login everyday and do everything all of the time. You can combine the resources in the hub with what you are already using - whether that is in paper form or online with an app to make everything less time consuming for you.
Because there will be new training videos, webinars, weekly plans, activity guides, ebooks and printables added to the hub every single month! What other educators have to pay separately for which can quickly add up - you will have access to anytime for just one low payment each month! You will also have access to training not available outside of the hub.
You could definitely try and that is certainly an option if you feel you are getting all that you need from surfing educational websites, reading books and interacting in huge Facebook groups to download bits and pieces of free stuff you then have to figure out how to use. I certainly don't want you to purchase something you don't need -that is just wasting my time and yours so I want to make sure you make an informed decision.
But going on the emails and private messages I receive everyday, the majority of early years educators have very little time to spare and are already feeling overstretched with a work/life balance that is just not sustainable anymore.
By joining the Member Hub you can forget about endless hours searching for that template, activity idea or answer to your question - it's all there in the one place now and you can simply log in when it suits you, download what you need, ask a question, talk to other educators or watch a training video and download your personalised certificate. I'm confident the hub is worth your time and money because I know I have already helped thousands of educators just like you over the past 8 years online with my resources and back to basics style.
Definitely! I regularly have educators and parents from around the world buy my resources, attend my webinars, watch my online course videos and join my Facebook community so no matter where you work you will find value and help for your role in the Member Hub. There are references, links and resources for Australian educators to make working with the Early Years Learning Framework easier but I have made sure to link all activities, plans and videos to general learning areas and current approaches common to all early childhood professionals.
I’ve been sharing play-based activities, programming strategies, tips for family day care educators, ideas for outdoor play & environments and more on my website since 2010 so I know a little bit about connecting with early years educators and leaders.
I've also been developing and selling resources that save educators time and help them understand the basics for the past 6 years so I'm confident my work connects with educators just like you. The Member Hub includes the same type of content and the down to earth approach I have been sharing for many years online. My ideas, tips and tools have been used by educators around the world - for many different early childhood roles.
I value the level of trust and reputation for helpful resources and advice I have built with fellow educators through my website and social media pages so I am definitely not about making over the top promises to you that I can't keep just to make money.
If you need to know more about me though before you decide if Member Hub is for you why not visit my website, my Facebook page with over 45,000 followers, my Empowered Ed community group with over 18,000 members, my Pinterest page with over 65,000 followers. I'm pretty sure that many people can't be wrong about my support, ideas and reputation.
The wonderful part about becoming a member is that you’ll be learning not only from me, but from other empowered ed's who’ve already simplified their programming, become more organised, developed systems that allow them to now spend more time with the children in their care and ultimately know firsthand that there IS a way to get their mojo back and love their work again. I can't wait for you to get there with us.
Want To Experience This Excitement Too?
If I Can Do This So Can You.
I want to let you know something Empowered Ed's…
I’m not extra special.
Not better than you.
I’ve never had access to exclusive consultants, ‘easy’ groups of children, unlimited time or fancy resources.
Through trial and error I created simple tools and systems that made work easier for me based on over 30 years practical, hands-on (often tearful) experiences in early childhood across a variety of roles.
Here’s the thing. You don’t need to be an expert or love paperwork – that’s not me either... so if I can do this, so can you.
You just need a pathway to follow and the tools Member Hub gives you... and let’s not forget the importance of a little personalised support without fear of judgement.
Look, you work really hard and this was your calling, if something for less than the cost of a dinner out per month can make you finally fall back in love with your job again and actually get you back spending time with your own family outside of work hours...isn’t it all worth it?
See you in there….
