Education for 7-8 year olds
Year 3 at My Online Schooling

We understand that online school can be daunting, particularly if your child is younger. When it comes to Year 3 at My Online Schooling, we often get asked questions like “Aren’t they too young?”, “How do they stay engaged?” and “How would my child make friends?”. 

Since 2016, our school has adapted the best aspects of bricks-and-mortar schooling to the online environment, resulting in the world’s most engaging online Year 3 curriculum for children ages 7-8 years old.
