How Can Member Hub Make Leadership Easier For You?

Are you finding it increasingly difficult to engage with and motivate your educators? Perhaps you are just tired of hearing 'but we've always done it this way' and feel frustrated when educators tell you they don't understand the need for critical reflection, ongoing self assessment and documentation.

You are trying your best to empower educators and give your team the opportunity to learn something new, extend on their strengths and grow in their role but you are just not sure where to start. The Empowered Educator Member Hub is your solution to all of these challenges and more!

Member Hub recognises that every team of educators is, in fact, an assembly of adults with diverse experiences and skill levels.. and all learn in different ways at a different pace. 

For you as a leader, this means you need access to a wide range of tools, training, templates, approaches and resources to select from that will help you identify exactly what core areas of each individual educator's work to review and focus on first, then select the tools they need to focus on self-improvement, the development of new skills and how to move forward in their role to provide quality outcomes for children and families.

Do any of the following statements seem familiar to you?

  • I'm already doing so much writing and completing my program on the weekend, why do I need to do more?
  • Why should I attend this training session when it's not even relevant to my role?.
  • What is the difference between critical reflection & reflection and why do we need to do it?
  • What's the point of writing out a program when no one looks at it anyway?
  • I don't need to do stuff for the QIP - that's only for leaders to do. 
  • I don't understand how to write meaningful observations and use them for forward planning. 
  • I don't know what activities I need to include in my program each week or how to link to learning outcomes 
  • How are we meant to collaborate and communicate with parents when they just drop off and pick up? 
  • I have no time to spend with the children anymore because of everything else I need to do, I'm exhausted. 
  • I'm not good with technology and don't understand why we need to use this app/computer/device. 

If you answered YES to any of the above then Member Hub 'Groups' is PERFECT for your team!

Join me, along with over 800 other educators inside The Empowered Educator Member Hub and find out firsthand how we support, mentor and motivate educators and leaders across a wide range of early childhood services!

The Empowered Educator Member Hub is the ONLY online space with a specific Early Childhood focus that gives Educators and Teachers the visual learning steps, templates, training, mentorship and sense of community they need to confidently meet all steps of the planning cycle and continuously improve their practice and skills across a broad range of ECE roles.

Member Hub Supports & Strengthens Leaders & Mentors.

There is a better, less stressful approach to reaching exceeding and empowering teams other than just telling educators to focus on paperwork or one specific area and not highlight and extend on what they are already doing well.

Not all educators know how to access & use different tools, knowledge and strategies that will help in their SPECIFIC role and I know from firsthand experience that as a leader you don't have the time to continually go searching for that ‘one thing’ that will help them.

That's why I have put my own experience from 30 years in early childhood into a safe online space that educators around the world can access...all in the one place to access immediately when YOU need it!

Be Prepared As A Team For Your Next Assessment

Let me give your team access to an ever-expanding library of templates, tools, e-books, play ideas, environment inspiration, training and support that will allow you as a team leader to quickly pull together all of those resources and create individual professional development opportunities and growth for each educator. 


The Member Hub ethos recognises that sometimes educators just need things explained a different way or to try a different template style or observation format.


To feel empowered by what they are learning and seeing the steps and tools they need to engage in reflection, self improvement and self development without fear of being told ‘you should already know that’. 


There are many different stepping stones on our personal learning journey and sometimes we need a guide - just like the children in our care do. 


With full access as a member, not only will you save the time and money I spent to create all of the resources you'll find in member hub and figure out what works, but you’ll also save what could be months or years of wasted time and money because you’ll be doing it the right time and sharing that knowledge with your team of educators!

The Empowered Educator,
Jodie Clarke

Jodie has had 30 years hands on experience in the early childhood profession and already supported and mentored thousands of educators with their work through her popular website The Empowered Educator & Member Hub for Educators as well as practical blog posts, activity ideas, factsheets, free e-guides, online training, Facebook Community, webinars and e-books.

Jodie has worked in many different roles across the human services and early childhood professions including Case Manager, Project Officer, FDC Coordinator and Educator, Occasional Care, Outside School Hours Care, Family Support Manager, IHC Coordinator, Room Leader, Director, Assistant in centre based care and training facilitator to name just a few, so it's likely she has already walked in similar shoes to your own!
Jodie knows what is helpful to educators because she is one too!

What makes the EE Hub different?

This isn't yet another online forum for educators to feel judged or inadequate when they ask for feedback on their work or seek help with planning and documentation!

This is a virtual Empowered Ed  Community that gives students and educators not only the tools and training to increase their skills, better understand the basics and save time meeting planning requirements.... It also offers a safe space to feel less isolated, to connect with other educators from around the world and to share ideas.

If you are already a member of The Empowered Ed free community group on Facebook you will understand the importance Jodie places on inspiring others - not bringing them down, on empowering educators to learn more in ways that work best for them, on sharing a diverse range of different ideas, environments and perspectives because she recognises that all Ed's have different skill levels, environments and resources to work with.

The difference comes down to an acknowledgement that this role is challenging, not often recognised for its importance and yes, sometimes overwhelming, but becoming a member of the Empowered Ed Hub will change all that as we come together as a community of professionals!

What else is different? What makes the Member Hub essential for early childhood educators on your team?

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, programs, activity guides and more are right there at your fingertips!

Simple Plans & Activity Ideas

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.

We Walk the Talk

 I share what I know is helpful because I have walked in many  similar shoes to yours over the past 30 years. 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.

Regular Live Webinars

Forget about paying for single webinars! Members will not only have access to a collection of short training videos - you also receive a seat at the regular live webinar or just watch the recording later as part of your monthly member fee.

Playful Learning Planning 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.

Cancel Membership Anytime

I have no doubt that you are going to find the Empowered Ed Member Hub worth every cent of your 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 explanations needed!
