Hi there, I’m Erin, Mum of two beautiful cherubs, wife, Early Childhood and Primary School teacher and your go to Mum for play based learning ideas and inspiration. When I am not working in the classroom, playing with my early learners, making lunchboxes, organising playspaces or folding laundry, I am here blogging at celebrateplay, the place where I share my obsession with organisation and play, along with my passion for teaching and lifelong learning.
THE BACKGROUND STORY
During December 2016, I was inspired to create some New Year Resolutions (in the form of ONE WORD) for 2017 as most of us are. One of my resolutions was to focus on leading a life with greater INTENTION, which lead to setting the goal of creating intentional play opportunities in the home for my children. After meeting up with some friends and talking about the trials and tribulations that motherhood brings, I began to entertain the thought of creating a place to share my journey of celebrating play and in turn inspire others too. In some short few days of preparation, I created a couple of online pop up groups and began to share my journey. It became a place for parents and educators to find their daily dose of play ideas, organisational tips, handy hints and the motivation to create wonderful play opportunities for the early learners in their lives.
THE PRESENT STORY
Since then, my little online community has evolved with the launch of an official celebrateplay online support group and now a blog and website, with opportunities to guest blog for some amazing business’ along the way.
…so where to next?
THE FUTURE STORY
…the sky is the limit. I want to continue to help parents, like YOU by:

What our play mates have to say about us…
“Gosh you are sooo special for sharing your knowledge. So many children will play because your inspiring so many families to be proactive and involved in play.”
“A big shout-out to Erin for the wonderful visual schedule in the library, especially the Daily 5 morning and afternoon tasks. This has been a game changer for us, thank you”.
I just get a sense of calm and I think, this is possible!
