Our Vision

An intergenerational community of lifelong learners.


Inspired Explorations Learning Community (IELC) is a growing community that began in 2013 with a vision of creating a community for families to grow authentically together. We officially opened our doors in 2016!

The Founder, Bethany Beaudry, began her journey of learning about holistic education when she engaged in her Masters of Arts in SelfDesign: Designing Learning Communities. She started learning about holistic philosophies such as The Schools of Reggio Emilia, Natural Learning Relationships, Awareness through the Body, and SongWorks Education. Once she developed an understanding of each of them, she synergistically brought them together to produce what is now practiced at Inspired Explorations Learning Community.

Our mission at IELC is to provide programming to enhance the embodiment of learning, the reflection and awareness of ones senses, the building of meaningful relationships, playing with purpose and to honour the developmental unfoldment of each member.

Our vision is to create an intergenerational community of lifelong learners who learn together, value each other, and honour each other’s authenticity. A community that creates a space to unfold naturally at one’s own pace, evolve consciously and foster socially compassionate and emotionally aware human beings.

Each month we host Inspired Families Gatherings which families are encouraged to attend. These provide a space for our community to come together and build deeper connections with each other. We feel that these opportunities empower our community members and improve the shared vision we have as a community.

We look forward to welcoming you to Inspired Explorations Learning Community. We hope you experience growth with us, contribute to building our vision and learn authentically every step of the way!
