Free Range Kids Early Learning Centre




What Makes Us Unique?

At Free Range Kids Laidley 2 we believe in the concept “It takes a village to raise a child”. We respect and embrace a child’s parents as their first teachers and carers in their life.  When a family joins our centre community, we ensure we collaborate and partner with all family members and community links that may be engaged. We acknowledge that the local community play a vital role in the developing a child’s agency and ability to discover the world around them. Our team of highly qualified and experienced long term educators are well established local community members who are involved in many local events, clubs and sporting teams. They are passionate and committed to provide high quality, play based educational programs inclusive to all children in our care. We welcome you to our centre to come and meet the “village” who are here to support and care for your special little members of your family.
