THE WONDERCHUMS COLLECTIVE


We're here to build the strengths and self-esteem of every child

Hey Mover-Shaker-Advocator-Creator!


Welcome to your new superpowers hub!


We are parents, carers, therapists, teachers, creators, researchers and experts who are passionate about nurturing children's strengths.


At Wonderchums, we realise that raising kids who know their unique superpowers is just half the battle in growing their self-esteem.


We wanted to create a place where we grownups could be supported. Where we could all share stories, learn new skills, explore ideas, lift each other up AND empower the kids in our lives to THRIVE.

Will you join us?




Connect with other like-minded parents and advocates


Questions about nurturing your child's uniqueness? How to build self-esteem? Or simply just navigating a new connected approach to raising your little Wonderchum?


The Collective is a place to get insights and resources, share experiences and find experts, and feel confident and supported in a safe space.

Meet the Wonderchums Collective


We gather big-heartedly and love a laugh and a dance on zoom. But most of all, we are unapologetically passionate about seeing *all* kids thrive and we want to connect with others who feel the same.


We're on a mission to help kids (along with their grownups) grow awareness of strengths and diversity, and in turn grow a kinder, brighter, more inclusive world.
