Thinkers.inq Terrey Hills is situated in the Garigal National Park on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. We have created a beautiful, light filled play space for children to play, laugh and grow in a safe and secure environment and an abundance of curiosities to explore.
Thinkers.inq Terrey Hills has a team of passionate teachers who work collaboratively with families to meet every need and inspire tremendous growth in the children who make up our community.
Thinkers.inq Terrey Hills honours the Aboriginal culture of the Terramerragal people of the Eora Nation. We would like to acknowledge the Terramerragal people who are the traditional custodians of this land on which we work and play. We would like to pay respect to the Elders both past and present of the Eora nation.

Currently, Rod heads up Thinkers.inq and is the principal adviser with Thinkers.inq consulting. He is also the chief investigator of The Playing with Gratitude research Project, a wellness endeavour supporting change in about 3500 Australian children, families, and teachers.
Rod’s expertise in the field of education includes extensive research into ontological and interpersonal development, critical thinking, pedagogy and transformational learning environments.
Rod is passionate about early learning and providing optimum opportunities for pre-schoolers to realise their full potential. Through his work, he aims to build a network of transformational educators and leaders by facilitating young learners and their families through personal growth, creative, critical and reflective thinking and innovation.
The establishment of Thinkersinq is a culmination of Rod’s commitment and vision to foster a community of creative and enquiring minds that can go forward into the world with confidence and open-minded curiosity.
"The children at Thinkers.inq are naturally inquisitive, we find out what arouses their curiosity and facilitate investigations that stimulate thinking and exploration in that area."
