‘Everything we do is centred around one goal – to inspire children.’
Inspire Early Learning was born to fill a need.
Our director, Sam Alexander, began his career with children in the after school care industry. When Sam’s wife, Alyssa, gave birth to their first son in 2017, they realised that despite an abundance of long day care centres in Sydney, few provided the meaningful, holistic early learning education they wanted their son to experience.
Sam decided to create a new type of early learning centre. To craft the highest quality experience for both children and parents, he quickly formed a partnership with Jennifer Ribarovski, Australia’s most experienced industry specialist and a co-author of the national Early Learning Framework.
After looking at leading early education systems from all over the world, one stood out for its ability to help educators guide children to be their best. The Reggio Emilia approach.
The Inspire team travelled to Italy, the birthplace of Reggio Emilia, to study the learning system’s philosophy. With Jennifer’s expert guidance, one of Australia’s most innovative early learning centres was created. Inspire Early Learning Australia.
I wanted to create an early childhood learning centre my son could grow up with.
