We believe that every child is unique, competent, capable, and full of possibilities. Together, as parents and educators, we can nurture play, calm, art, and nature as powerful pathways to inspire a new generation of hope, love, and joy.
Our world needs this now more than ever.
For this reason, we stand with you in gratitude, sharing all we can to support you as you nurture, guide, and inspire the well-being of your children each and every day.

Susan brings a fresh perspective to raising children. With a focus on the well-being of children, Susan founded Nurtured Inspirations where she offers digital resources, courses, and mentorship for parents and educators who nurture, guide, and inspire children.
Susan shares over three decades worth of experiences from travels in Canada, USA, and Italy where she studies early childhood theory and practice along with explorations in the Reggio Emilia Approach, and her everyday classroom experiences as a teacher.
Working alongside children, their families, and educators from around the world, Susan’s philosophy of childhood has evolved into The Nurtured Inspirations Approach where she inspires everyday play, mindfulness, art, and nature to those who share their days with children.
