What is Informal Education?

In our previous lessons, we talked about what real education is and what formal and non-formal education involves.

If you have not already read this begin here:

In this lesson, however, we want to look at what informal education involves.

Informal education involves no formal curriculum and no credits earned. 

The teacher is simply someone with more experience such as a parent, grandparent or a friend. 

A father teaching his child to play catch or a babysitter teaching a child their ABC’s is an example of informal education.

These may be overly simplified explanations. There are times when the lines between each type of learning get blurred, as well. It isn’t always as cut and dry as it seems, but these definitions give you a general idea of each type of learning.


1. Lifelong process.

2. The individual learns from daily experiences.

3. The individual learns from exposure to the environment at home, at work, at play etc.
