LIBERATED LEARNING, LEARNING FOR LIBERATION
in Oakland, California

"We cannot keep using tools of oppression and expect to raise free people." - Akilah Richards

Liberated Kids is a Self-Directed Education (SDE) Community for kids between the ages of 5-14 in Oakland. We are an alternative to school where kids are recognized as the leaders of their own learning. We are a safe space where Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and other POC voices and experiences are centered. We are rooted in community, as parents, family, and community members are guides and co-learners. We are endeavoring to decolonize childhood and allow our children to be their full selves.

Our goal is to be a
transformative, trauma-informed,
inclusive and reflective self-directed learning space.


At Liberated Kids, we provide an environment that allows kids' curiosity, playfulness, and other natural ways of learning to flourish... where kids can feel liberated!
