How does our online homeschool curriculum work?


Approximately 2 hours of videos per day. Taught by an experienced teacher with over 10 years experience in the classroom.


Students pause videos to do hands-on exercises and activities like painting, maths, sculpture, writing, reading and more.


Students learn without the social pressures of school, peacefully and at their own pace.

Kids need relationships
Not robots.

Functional education is not an on-line repository of videos, and loosely associated video games for children to play. We don’t use cartoons or computer games disguised as learning activities. All videos include a real teacher, in a real classroom environment.

NO ADS. No bullies

A peaceful, online environment. Your children can study safely at home. None of our content contains advertisements.

BE involved as much or as little as you like

Student's usually don't need much help once they're familiar with the platform, but they'll love it when parents or grand parents are interested in what they're learning.

Fantastic feedback from parents!

Everything is covered, my child was engaged and excited to do lessons each day and it took a lot of the planning time and preparing resources each day away for myself which is fabulous!

- Happy Home-School Mum

My son found it easy to understand, not rushed, there was plenty of time to process information and his teacher was animated and his words, “my teacher isn’t boring!”

- Mum & Trained Teacher

I really like how the video can be paused and replayed. My favourite part was the daily gratitude activity. Brilliant idea, something I intend to continue.
