Our founder was a working mum who couldn’t find an alternative to the onsite after school care at her son’s primary school. Frustrated and guilty for leaving him to the ‘child minding’ service, she wanted more.

She created Inspire’s unique concept to incorporate structured physical, mental and creative activities for children. A place where they go to be inspired.

In a heavily regulated industry, Inspire’s multi-functional head office team take away the administrate burden so that our centre staff can focus 100% on the children. Our warehouse in Castle Hill is jammed packed with ‘Be Inspired’ resources, allowing our centres to share quality activities all year round.
