Revolution Learning is here to serve the Early Years Community to make life and learning Magical! We do this through Professional Development Workshops, Consultations, Children’s Incursions, Parent Evenings, and Community Events.
Revolution Learning is like a rainbow bursting through the trees as we meet you with our creative energy and grounded knowledge in the Early Years.
For the past decade we have travelled throughout Australia deep into the land and through the cities igniting the spark for Play-based, Inspirational and Compassionate learning for all.
We have an effervesce pit of ideas that always excites and engages Educators, Children, Families and Communities to REALLY embrace learning in the Early Years in fresh creative ways!
Belinda Whateley has been working with children, educators and families for over 20 years and started Revolution Learning 9 years ago as she was deeply inspired to bring more magic, nature, and heart-centred learning into educational settings for children and adults. This drive has lived inside Belinda from her earliest memories growing up on the land where she created magical games with her pets and rescued injured animals – this is where her most precious and profound learning occurred.
Belinda’s passion blossomed when she spent 8 years as an Educator at Woodleigh in South Australia with a supportive and kind team that allowed her values, playfulness and wisdom to grow and shine. In this time Belinda became the inaugural National Educator of the year, and then authored the book Magical Moments which helps to bring about more mindful relationships and wise practices in Early Years Educational settings.
Belinda has been spreading her love for learning throughout Australia through interactive and educational workshops, seminars, conferences, Women’s retreats, Meditation Meets, and Energy Enchantment healings. She travels joyfully spreading the message of the importance of the power of compassionate and creative individuals uniting to help make Life and Learning Magical for all ages – we are never too old or young to fuel our hearts with playfulness and the Freedom to live and learn.
Belinda’s dream has remained the same since childhood, and that is that everyone discovers their true essence and purpose of living from their heart, immersing the world in love, magical adventures and health for all living things
Today, Belinda has expanded Revolution Learning to include passionate staff experienced in various fields such as Education of the early years and primary, land and nature conservation, music, self-awareness, Yoga and meditation, and PLAY-based Learning to name a few. All who are part of Revolution Learning believe in igniting people’s inner flame to let their talents shine and create new and inspirational ways to Belong, Be and Become.
“Belinda is one of the most inspirational people I have ever met. After I spend time with her I always feel as though I can do anything and that there is hope for a better world. She is a caring and considerate person who always sees the best in any situation. She has a presence that makes you feel as though magic DOES exist and inspires the creativity in all around her.” – Heather Harding, Business Trainer and Lecturer, Tasmania.
Ross has an extensive history with the Environment both in living and working with. He grew up on a bush property 40kms south of Darwin in the Northern Territory for 15 years. Ross spent 3 years at Kormilda College (Indigenous boarding high school) in Darwin and then moved to Perth Western Australia to finish high school and his Bachelor in Sociology. After partially finishing his Diploma in Education, he completed his Diploma in Conservation and Land Management and until recently worked full-time in this industry for 11 years. Ross continues to spread the importance of Nature and Sustainability on a broader spectrum, with his work for Revolution Learning reaching Riyadh Saudi Arabia where he is part of a pilot project ‘greening the desert’ in connection with Kings Park Botanical Gardens, Perth.
Ross has a strong and intrinsic connection to the land and nature. Amongst other things, this connection has lead Ross to serving the community through the exploration of Sound Healing with his sacred instruments: Didgeridoos (8 at last count ), Native American Hoop Drum and Flutes, Chinese/Japanese Shakuhachi flute, Indian Bansuri Flute, Tibetan Singing Bowls, Acoustic Guitar, and Voice. Ross is the go-to-guy for incursions involving Mindful Movement and Yoga, cultural connection between land, people, animals and plants with his engaging and gentle ways of connecting with children and adults.
A great passion of Ross’ is bringing out each child’s uniqueness and confidence to learn, along with the hope to connect more Children with Nature through exploration, wonderment and adventure.
Indee the cat who loves nature adventures, (see her in this picture) came into Belinda’s life in 2004 after Indee was found homeless and all alone, so Belinda welcomed her with an open heart. She was a much accepted and loved sister to Britnee and they all become best friends . Indee is a unique cat with magical powers! She shares much wisdom with Belinda and it was Indee who gave Belinda the name of this life mission ‘Revolution Learning.’ Since then Indee continues to share wisdom with Belinda and Gecko. Indee has a special role in Team Revolution Learning! She brings to life the inspirational messages of the natural world, in particular the Crystals and how they can guide learning opportunities. Indee is a cheeky cat like all cats, but she has unconditional love and gentleness and absolutely loves cuddles… although she misses her sister Britnee she does adore the undivided attention she receives as the only child of Belinda and Gecko. Please head to the Blogs to read some of her positive messages and try her learning opportunity ideas for yourself and with children.
Britnee was Belinda’s Beautiful Pomeranian dog that came into her life in 1999 and was forever by her side with such loyalty and love. Britnee would visit Child Care centres when Belinda was an Educator, and play and cuddle with the Children teaching them special values like Love, Compassion, Kindness, and how Magical it is for Animals and People to connect and share. Britnee’s last couple of years saw her travel throughout WA with Belinda and Gecko, attending workshops continuing to unite people and animals through Compassionate Hearts. Her wonderful life ended in August 2015 but not before Belinda spoke to her as she lay tired and weak in her arms during her final hours…. Belinda whispered to her ‘When you join the AngelHood please visit us and make everyone laugh as this will be the sign we know your presence is here ’. So through the tears came giggles and bursting laughter from nowhere at times, and it continues as we know Britnee is by our side in Spirit, the darling girl xx.
It was not long after Britnee’s welcome to AngelHood that Belinda was guided by Britnee’s spirit to create her Crystal Rainbow Bridge Legacy! Anyone who has attended workshops since August will know and smile at the joy she continues to bring as each person who attends receives a crystal that is infused with FUN, Love and Magic created by all of us at the uplifting and touching workshops. May Britnee’s legacy continue to light up the world connecting Heaven and Earth, People and Animals, through Rainbows and Crystals. Always hold Magic and memories of laughter in your heart!
The divine picture here is drawn by 15 year old Emily Munchenburg who was one of the Children Belinda cared for at ‘Woodleigh’, Loxton District Children’s Centre in SA when Emily was aged 2-5years old.

My name is Emily Munchenburg and I am 15 years old. Art is my greatest passion, I love it so much and I work really hard to create pieces that I am proud of, I don’t play sport it’s not something I am really into, so I stick to something that I am really good at which is art. Art is very important in my life and when I can make a piece for someone and for them to appreciate what I love it makes me so happy. I am so grateful to be able to be on this website and showcase my artwork for other people to look at. Feel free to send me an email about questions about my art at Emily.Munchenburg52@gmail.com
