Free Range Learning

What is Free Range Learning?

Free Range Learning is learning by living, not sitting in a classroom. It is learning by following our passions, exploring our world, living inquisitive lives and thinking freely. It is a lifestyle based on trust of a child's natural desire to learn about the world around them. Every person's learning journey will develop based upon their interests, experiences and choices. What schools have twisted into a one-size-fits-all curriculum naturally unfolds for each child in an individually determined way. Children will learn what is important and meaningful to them when they are ready. By living in the world rather than being tucked away in an artificial environment, children encounter an unlimited variety of learning experience.

Here, you will find information about what Free Range Learning looks like. You will find information on natural parenting choices, various subjects of interest to myself that I want to share with you, as well as, links to different websites and articles that I have found helpful while facilitating the explorations of my children.



"I am beginning to suspect all elaborate and special systems of education. They seem to me to be built upon the supposition that every child is a kind of idiot who must be taught to think. Whereas, if the child is left to himself, he will think more and better, if less showily. Let him go and come freely, let him touch real things and combine his impressions for himself, instead of sitting indoors at a little round table, while a sweet-voiced teacher suggests that he build a stone wall with his wooden blocks, or make a rainbow out of strips of coloured paper, or plant straw trees in bead flower-pots. Such teaching fills the mind with artificial associations that must be got rid of, before the child can develop independent ideas out of actual experience." —Anne Sullivan
