I found Member Hub (The Academy) so useful as I was just starting out in my educational leader role. I was lucky enough to be able to pass everything I have learnt on to the next educational leader.

Hi Jodie.. just a quick thankyou so much for all the hard work you have put into this amazing resource. I absolutely love looking through all the hub has to offer. It has refreshed my way of doing portfolios and programming. (12 years in LDC). Love, love love it. 😁

Great tool to help with understanding programming and the planning cycle. Lots of webinars to help gain skills and templates to guide you in your programming documentation...I love the simplicity of the tool and the clear explanation on the why's & how's.

Calling Early Childhood Educators, Leaders & Directors Who Need Support & Mentorship To Stay In Their Current Role…

Want to ENJOY Creating Opportunities For Play Based Early Learning Again?

Of course you do - even without a supportive manager, service or complete confidence in your ability to meet all of the standards and regulations expected of you because you’re feeling constantly exhausted and uninspired...

But what if you were able to get the training & mentorship you needed to feel supported, reignite your motivation, restore confidence and make a difference to whether you continue in early childhood or not?

It seems that more and more often lately...

  • You have to leave required paperwork uncompleted (or more likely take it home on the weekend with you) just so you can get some time for quality interactions with the children during the week.

The last thing you need is more writing or...

  • Having to attend another long boring training session after hours (with pizza instead of pay) that (surprise, surprise), doesn’t actually help you save time or give you the solutions & realistic action steps you can use right now in your specific role. You enjoy opportunities to increase your knowledge yes, but unless you can find time to get the basics completed you’re never going to have a hope of using this additional information right?

And who has the energy or time to...

  • Constantly mentor and explain everything to the more inexperienced educators just entering the workforce (often because they’ve fast tracked their training or study online !) when you’re already stretched thin enough as it is. And if you're that inexperienced educator looking for support you end up feeling embrassed and inadequate.

Not to mention how painful it is trying to...

  • Meet all of the planning and documentation steps and link everything to a learning outcome (which you don’t need to do by the way but no one explained that to you!)

It’s no wonder you’ve been thinking a job at Maccas wouldn’t be so bad and found yourself practising ‘would you like fries with that’ in that dream the other night because you have no idea where this magical utopia of valued and well supported educators is.

Who could blame you?

It’s like there’s a secret training and support strategy that you’re not in on, and you just wish somebody would finally open up and tell you what it is. 


I’m that somebody!

Hi, I'm Jodie, your planning and play mentor.

The answer to you as an educator feeling more motivated and able to confidently guide and extend children’s early learning day after day with everything else you’re expected to do, is first understanding how to BALANCE your planning, programs, assessment, play, interactions and environment by simplifying what you’re already doing and removing what’s NOT useful or meaningful.

It ISN’T a solution to just expect more of the WHAT constantly from educators (or yourself!). More paperwork, more templates, more assessments or more complicated steps and processes to follow without any WHY, HOW or WHEN support.

After all - we want to continue to work with young children and we want to encourage other educators to join us…which isn’t going to happen if we’re still feeling unsupported, inadequate or judged.

You just need a few simpler documentation tools, step by step training that explains concepts visually for you with real examples you can actually relate to, easier processes to follow so that you can stop doubling up on paperwork… and a whole lot of support with a sprinkling of mentorship to build on your current strengths and skills...

Which Is Why You Need...

The templates, training, play ideas, programs & time management resources that will give you the motivation and action steps to get through all those child observations, assessment visits, room setups, forward planning notes, program writing and reflections with confidence and no more unnecessary writing.

And that time you'll save with those tools at your fingertips…

will allow you to focus on more quality interactions with the children and setting up activities and experiences that will create incidental and intentional opportunities for early learning...the part of the job you actually love and feel inspired by.

I Keep Coming Back To Simple...

Through years of on the floor experience trying out different strategies and methods to deliver high quality experiences and outcomes for children (while also maintaining my own sanity!), not to mention planning mistakes that wasted a lot of my time, the most effective approach I’ve found that still works for me even today is to just ‘Keep It Simple’.

This Supports Ed's Like You To...

Feel more motivated to continue in the early childhood profession you chose for a reason... 

You'll Feel More Confident If...

You first understand what each step of the planning cycle is, what the essential documentation you need to collect is (and what’s NOT meaningful), then HOW to do it in a way that makes sense to you.

So That You'll Have More Time To...

Focus on setting up your room and activities, including the things important to you like invitations and provocations that support your intentional teaching and forward planning.

Not every educator is 'exceeding level' skilled at documentation and paperwork... and that’s ok

Not every observation tool, family communication app, learning story format or program template makes sense to every educator…and that’s ok

We're all unique in the way we document, support and extend a child’s early learning journey because we don’t all have the same strengths, resources, age groups or even levels of experience.

And that is ABSOLUTELY ok.

Yes Really...That's Why A Keep It Simple Approach Works So Well For All Educators - No matter Their Experience Or Early Years Role.


It transforms complicated planning cycles and unnecessary paperwork into a clear step by step routine that actually gives you the information needed to inform your future planning and speed up the entire documentation cycle …

and that means...

It supports educators to arrive home each day feeling more confident in their work and not worried about HOW to complete something with the time and budget they have because they now understand WHY they are doing it in the first place and what works with their strengths…not the person down in the preschool room or the FDC educator around the corner.

Want To Know How I Keep It Simple?

My *secret strategy* is to use a Keep It Simple Approach To Planning & Play...

Yep, that’s it. No fancy tricks. 

Just back to basics steps & choosing to use easier methods instead of complicated.

I've Been Using This 'Simpler' Approach To Planning For The Last 30 Years In Early Childhood...and so can you

The Truth?

The way many of our online early childhood training institutions now teach the planning cycle and what educators *must* do to create the best possible outcomes for children’s early learning is broken, rushed and too focused on one type fits all strategies and methods.

Everywhere you look, early education managers and services (both home based and centre based) are telling you to complete a certain number of observations, reflections and programs. But nobody is teaching you…

WHY you need to do all this writing or HOW you could modify it to better suit your skills, strengths and the age group you work with so it becomes less overwhelming and time consuming.

And this means even our experienced educators and leaders are becoming more stressed as they try to explain something they aren’t quite sure of themselves anymore because there are so many ECE myths and false interpretations of framework expectations circulating right now.

Every educator should be shown HOW to confidently use a *simpler* approach to their documentation, setups and program writing to gather meaningful information that ultimately supports children’s learning…

and yet I see so many who aren’t…and unfortunately, they are the educators and teachers burning out at an alarming rate in early education.

But It's Not Your Fault...

you just haven’t been shown HOW to simplify Your Documentation & processes In A Way That Ensures You still complete the planning cycle & Meet Regulations...

...So That You end up less stressed & Frustrated about Doing it

i'm not sure how to do this

Like many other educators, teachers and leaders, you’ve probably just been told WHAT you need to do to meet the many standards and outcomes *required*... and then you're left on your own to figure out the you try to do a bit of everything...all of the time.

when do i get time for this?

…it’s easy to see why you might FEEL like you're always stuck in catch up mode with paperwork with little time left to actually engage with the children or set up your environments the way you want them.


I don’t know about you but I feel so frustrated when early childhood educators tell me they *have* to complete 10 learning stories or link every activity they plan to a learning outcome to meet the requirements of frameworks and standards...


Because it's simply not true...

…and I believe if there was more emphasis on supporting educators to understand the WHY and HOW of the planning and documentation cycle rather than just the quantity of paperwork to show *evidence* of planning, we wouldn't have so many stressed, qualified and disappointed educators leaving our sector right now.

It’s not good enough. And it’s time to change that... 

You probably haven’t heard this in awhile but you DO have rights and options as an educator…

You deserve to go to work each day feeling motivated, inspired and excited by the important work that you do…and we want leaders to have the resources and guidance they need to mentor new educators so it lessens the current burden on our more experienced educators.

So if you’re an educational leader, room leader, family daycare educator, student, preschool teacher, kindergarten teacher or director who wants to confidently balance your planning, activities, documentation, assessments and time with well set up, engaging learning environments and meaningful interactions with children...

...but aren't sure where to start or what to do to mentor others toward creating change…

Here's How We'll get You There...

feel more confident

Access the resources you need to do your job well on-demand when it suits you

extend your skills 

Ensure you are not left frustrated trying to find training that is useful to your specific ECE role

stop looking for activities

Instead, you can choose from a library of play-based activities for 0-12 years that are ready to go straight onto your program since they are already linked to learning areas for you.

setup the way you want

Have more time to set up your learning environments, invitations and activities the way you want them

So what kinds of early childhood educators and leaders find the training & workshops inside the 4 Resource Pillars of The Academy useful?

Take a look below…


is a family day care educator...

Who was feeling a little flat with the style of programming she had been using. She didn’t feel it suited her style and had lost her motivation. After watching some workshops she said she was feeling ‘excited and eager now to start afresh with my programming’.


is a kindergarten teacher...

Who was really surprised at the fact that we don’t need to always be showing links visually to the learning outcomes and so inspired after watching the observation training that she went on to incorporate some of what was said into their observation process at the centre.


is an educational leader...

Who used the ideas gained from one of the workshops to get her team thinking about how they set up an area to encourage more engaged play and they also learnt how to extend their indoor program to the outside environment.


is an Assistant Educator...

Who was worried about how to link all of the steps of her planning cycle together while also keeping parents and carers in the loop. She now understands how to focus on the learning when writing her observations and uses a simpler layout.


is a centre Director...

Who discovered she was doubling up on parts of her planning process. She’s now simplified the process they use and her staff think it’s ‘simple & effective, AND it doesn’t take too much time to complete!”


is a Family Daycare Coordinator...

Who learnt the importance of ensuring educators understand the ‘why’ in what they are doing and how to make the planning cycle more visual. She went on to explain to her educators “what each step means and why they are doing it rather than just saying you have to plan, program, analyse etc”.

And with our new AI Assistants & Mentors there to answer your questions on demand, finally getting in front of your planning, documentation and assessment so you can get back to what's really important , is now possible  for you...

All This Without Having To...

Fill in templates or apps you don’t understand because ‘everyone else does it this way’.

Connect everything on your program to a theorist or learning outcome before the play can begin.

Stare at a blank template wondering what your going to put on your program this week

Worry about how you can show written evidence of an ongoing cycle of learning.

Spend hours and hours documenting and analysing children’s observations without gaining any meaningful information to make your forward planning easier.

Resort to writing more than you need to or buying expensive resources because you haven’t been given the basic information and guidance that you need to complete your planning cycle... and you feel too embarassed to ask for help

Use the same old equipment in the same old ways to set up your learning environments…leaving you AND the children feeling bored and uninspired.
