Introducing... a friendly online hub packed with the training, resources and professional support you need to become an Empowered, Organised & Confident Early Years Educator! 

Do any of these sound familiar to you?

You get to the beginning of a new week wondering what activities to set up & how t​​​​o keep them interesting.

You get frustrated trying to meet unrealistic expectations. Somehow you never seem to get on top!

You write observations because you have to but don't know how to make them meaningful or use reflection.

You don't have a support person or mentor to guide you and often feel isolated in your role.

You keep saying you want to make changes to your environment but you don't know where to start.

You don't know whether you are meeting all steps of the planning cycle or what documentation to use.

If you connect with even a few of these statements you already know how difficult it is to ask for answers, tools and support without feeling judged or inadequate as an educator!

Guess what? It's not your fault & you aren't alone or inadequate!

Every educator should have the right to ask for helpful feedback & guidance and be able to explore simpler (yet still best practice) ways to do their job in a non judgemental learning space.

You are more than competent, that's not the issue - you just need respect and access to resources, support and training from someone who understands how frustrating yet rewarding this job can be - someone who just tells it like it is and keeps things simple! Someone who doesn't lecture but empowers!

And that's why I created The Empowered Ed Member Hub!

Joining other early childhood educators from around the world in the member Hub will not only help you to connect, grow and share ideas but also enable you to always have access  to exclusive Empowered Ed training, monthly program plans, activity guides, printables, e-books and professional tips and strategies  that you need to not only simplify and clarify but also to feel empowered, supported and inspired to try new things - without the judgement, without the jargon, without the overwhelm!

Member Hub sounds great but...

I need some questions answered first!

Are the activities just for preschool age children?

I'm not good with computers - will I be able to use it?

Are the printables and templates just worksheets?

Is this just going to be more work for me?

Why would I want to keep paying each month?

Why are there only 4 times a year we can subscribe?

Couldn't I just get all this information online for free?

I'm not an Australian Educator - will this still be useful?

​​​How can I be sure you know what you are talking about?

Personalised professional development certificates available for all training videos & webinars!

Hi Empowered Ed's!

I'm Jodie and I have had 30 years hands on experience in the early childhood profession and already supported and mentored thousands of educators with their work through my popular website The Empowered Educator and practical blog posts, activity ideas, factsheets, free e-guides, online training, Facebook Community, webinars and e-books.

I have worked in many different roles across the family 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 I have already walked in similar shoes to your own!
I know what is helpful to educators because I am 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 like me?

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 & 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 weekly 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.

Live Monthly Webinars

Forget about paying constantly for single webinars! Members will not only have access to a growing collection of short training videos - you also receive a seat at the monthly live webinar or you can 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 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!
