Susan Stacey

Susan Stacey’s work revolves around inquiry-based learning for both children and educators, emergent curriculum, reflective practices, and pedagogical documentation. She is a long time student of the thinking and practices that reach out to us from the schools of Reggio Emilia. Susan has worked with inquiry-based practices for over 35 years as an early years educator, lab school director, practicum coach, and consultant. In this work, she has mentored, encouraged and nudged educators toward shifts in thinking, trying innovative practices, and especially in documenting their work and ideas. Susan’s books include Emergent Curriculum in Early Childhood Settings; Unscripted-Emergent Curriculum in Action; Pedagogical Documentation; and Inquiry-based Early Learning Environments: Creating, Supporting, and Collaborating.

Founder, Nurtured Inspirations

Susan Wright

For over 32 years, Susan Wright has shared a passion with educators and parents who guide, nurture, and inspire children. Working collaboratively with children, she works alongside educators and parents to make visible children’s thinking as a way to honour each child’s human experience and unique ways of being. As a teacher, researcher, author, and pedagogical leader, Susan brings a fresh perspective to education through the relationships she builds with educators and parents. As the Founder of the newest collective in education, Susan created Nurtured Inspirations as a way to connect globally with individuals and teams of educators and parents looking to share together as intellectual partners building learning relationships alongside children. Susan travels internationally and collaborates virtually with those wishing to build lasting learning partnerships that share in rich educational endeavours. Susan has visited schools in Canada, the United States, and Italy to study children’s thinking and learning, and to engage in pedagogical dialogue around educator practise.
