Do any of the following comments from other educators make sense to you?

Why should I attend this training session when it's not even relevant to my role?

I'm already doing so much writing and completing my program on the weekend, why do I need to do more?

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. 

The REAL reason you end up feeling overwhelmed and lacking in confidence as an educator is this...

You know you are awesome when it comes to creating activities , nurturing and engaging with the children but when it comes to paperwork and planning requirements you don't understand WHY you have to do so much or HOW to even get it all done in the time you have and on top of all that, someone is always asking to see 'evidence' of your planning cycle with everything nicely 'linked' together even though it hasn't been explained clearly HOW to do that!!


So is it any wonder you are ready to give up sometimes?

"Should I keep going?"

You used to love this job but you are beginning to wonder if you want to keep going with all these new  documentation requirements and expectations. 

"Why do I feel behind?"

You might be wondering why other educators seem to have it all sorted but you always feel behind even if you know you are good at what you do.

"Should I look at different jobs?"

You might have found yourself researching other jobs you can use your current skills , experience and qualifications for because childcare suddenly seems like too much work for the pay you receive.

"Who Cares if... ?"

Maybe you are at the point of no longer caring that you don't even understand that template or app you have been told you have to use.. "who cares if I don't really understand what I'm writing about to fill in the spaces - I just need to tick off those outcome boxes and cover myself!"

I bet at least one of those statements above made sense to you. How do I know that?

Because I have felt that way too. But I made a CHANGE & you can too!

You don't have time for 'here is just one piece of the puzzle' trial and error steps that leave you right back where you are now.

You don't have the money to keep wasting on templates that you don't understand how to use or training that isn't useful to your particular role and professional development needs.

Been there done that - didn't work did it?  I’m going to remove those time and money wasting steps for you because it’s hard enough as it is being an educator in these times!

With the right step by step support and tools covering literally EVERYTHING you need to know about how to observe, reflect, forward plan, write a play based program and set up learning environments while still spending the majority of your  time with the children in your care and doing what you do best - you will be back to your empowered and motivated self before you know it!

If that sounds good then Member Hub is PERFECT for you!

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 

You don't want (or need) to reinvent the wheel and change everything you are doing...you just need some help to build on your current strengths and skills - especially with the planning and time management side of things... and Programming Made Simple together with Member Hub will show you HOW to do that....quickly.

Join me, along with over 800 other educators inside The Empowered Educator Member Hub and find out first hand 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!

The Empowered Ed Member Hub has been created especially for early years educators who recognise the importance of play based learning  and want to access the support, guidance and tools to help them create  playful environments & active learning experiences without the  overwhelm or over the top documentation.

Do you wish this job was a bit easier sometimes?

Do you get to the beginning of a new week wondering what activities to set up & how to keep them interesting?

Do you get frustrated trying to meet unrealistic expectations?Feel like you never seem to get on top of everything?

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

Do you often feel isolated or unsupported in your role even though you ask for help?

Do you keep saying you want to make changes to your learning environment but don't really know where to start?

Do you know whether you are even meeting all steps of the planning cycle with all that writing you do?

The Story

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.

The Problem

You are more than competent, that's not the issue - you might be the most experienced educator you know but you still 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!


The Solution

Someone who doesn't lecture but empowers! Someone who understands we are always building on our skills. Someone who understands the limited time you have available. Someone who gets we don't all learn in the same way! I'm that someone... And that's why I created... ????The Empowered Educator Member Hub.

Jodie Clarke


The Empowered Educator

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!

It sometimes feels like your only option is to get out of this profession doesn't it? Let's face it-

* The pay comes in at just slightly more than a jar of Nutella next to that bottle of wine from the shelf on the bottom that had cobwebs growing under it.

* You have no patience left when it comes time to actually parent your own kids.

* 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 to much time cleaning toilets, emptying rubbish, filling in paperwork and attending meetings out of hours!

* You are an experienced educator who enjoys learning new skills but you need easy access to resources, tools and training that doesn't require you to give up nights and weekends with your own family.

Wondering how I'm in your head like that?

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 embrajob. 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 you could feel like this too... no matter your role or where you live. And now Member Hub is here.

What do current members want to tell you?

I am feeling more confident because of what I have learned and knowing that there are lots of passionate educators who really want to provide quality programs for every child in their care.

Donna Morgan - Coordinator BSC/ASC

If you need help and support to do your demanding job well this is the place for you!

Linda Tandy- FDC Educator

Plenty of resources and helps you to understand the cycle of planning in an easy way. Ideas of activities, environment setups and the best thing is that each activity links to learning areas and extension ideas.

Indri Holmqvist -  EC Teacher 

The Member Hub allows me further inspiration to reignite my Passion for being an early childhood educator...sometimes the flame has so much of a breeze against it I don’t want it to go out!!! Really like being part of a community that is private and professional. Thanks so much Jodie xo

Birūtė Stelmokas - Senior Educator Toddlers

I have learnt so much and am starting to get more family time! have already recommended to other educators in my scheme I have told them that I have learnt so much on how to not over think and over do on paper work and how I love your training videos and that you are so easy to listen to and understand.

Belinda Shaw - FDC Educator

It is a great resource, reaffirms our thinking and a great time saver for educators. All resources get myself and my staff thinking. There are like minded educators. It revitalises us.

what's new in memberhub

Have you spent money on expensive consultants, training sessions, apps, books and more over the years as you try to get your enthusiasm back and wrap your head around all the paperwork requirements?

Yes?


Me too, but it was truly a lightbulb moment when I realised that those things provided ‘some’ of the answers but what I really needed was structure, peer support, simplified planning options, empowerment and to lose the feeling of guilt and judgement that always seemed to be present because I dared to look for easier ways of doing the essentials!

Member Hub will work for you even if:

  • You feel like your brain cells take a walk outside your brain every time you sit down to do that weekly program! 
  • You want to bang your head against a wall every time you have to write another observation!
  • You think that getting on top of paperwork and coming up with new ideas every week must actually be a skill or gift other educators have but not you!
  • You want to run to the 'no soft fall risky play' area outside and fall down hard because you were asked yet again what learning outcome your activity meets 
  • You feel you are second- guessing, half-arsing your way through every day at work because frankly it all seems overwhelming and your sick of talking to yourself about it! 
  • You ARE an educator with years already under your paint stained shorts and are now simply looking for a different way to connect with other educators, access useful resources and flexible training options that will add to your skills and make your job more efficient! 

Member Hub tools that make work easier for you!

How do I know if Empowered Ed Resources are helpful?

Thousands of educators from around the world have already purchased Empowered Educator e-courses, training webinars, Ebooks, resource toolkits, templates and printables and they continue to come back for more! Take a look at what they are saying online!

Want to Join But Need Questions Answered First?

Click on the boxes below to reveal answers to some of our frequently asked questions.

What if I’m not very good with computers or tech devices?

Are the printables & templates just worksheets?

Are the activities just for preschool age children?

Is this just going to be more work for me?

Will I really be able to meet each step of the planning cycle? 

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

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

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

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 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, 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!

Imagine this day with me...

Imagine that you don't have that stressed feeling for once on a Sunday afternoon because you are feeling confident with your weekly plan done, your activities linked to learning outcomes, your paperwork organised and your environment and craft prep ready for the week ahead already. Heck you might have even squeezed in a 15 minute toolbox video session or watched the live webinar replay to check off some of those professional development hours! There is currently no other member club available in our profession online that can make this happen for you!
