Hey Mama,

You are an amazing being, 

specialised multitasker, sometimes tired, other times underappreciated. Welcome to a space dedicated to you, Australian School Mums, a community that supports, shares, and inspires Mums across the country during their children’s journey through school. 

I’m Nicole, founder of Australian School Mums. Mum of two.

When my eldest started school, just before the longest lockdown, I found myself overwhelmed with the change in schedules, confused with the conflicting information available and truthfully, lonely without the support system that we had invested during his early years. We were at a new school with new expectations for him and myself. At school and at home. 

This led me to create Australian School Mums, an online community facebook group of mums just like me who wanted support and needed a laugh through uncharted waters. 

With no idea what to expect, I couldn’t believe it when after just a few short months, thousands of Mothers joined in from across Australia.

We have all contributed to building a supportive, non judgemental environment where women come together to share advice, look for support and exchange life hacks. We all acknowledge that the juggle is real; between raising children, raising a family, and running a  home and/or a business. The information shared is practical, saves time and encourages all to share a laugh or two.

As the school year went on, we grew, and it was clear that we needed some help to be connected to the best resources and businesses in our day to day life. 

“Because the school journey doesn’t come with a manual, it is my mission to support Mums to connect with other Mums, so no one is doing it by themselves”

Being a Mother is one of the most challenging (yet rewarding) roles in our lives, we love our children, we want the very best education for them, we want them to enjoy life and be happy. Ultimately we all want our little ones to be ready for what is ahead of them. I can say that with my hand on my heart I will do all I can to make that happen.
