How does it work?

English, Maths and Science tests are available on the website. Once an adult enrols a child, s/he can log on with her/his personal username and password and take English, Maths and Science tests. Every time children sit a test, they can print out a certificate or e-mail it to friends and family, they also accrue points they can redeem to buy their avatars treats and accessories. The more they work, the more points they earn. Adults receive e-mail updates on the test results.

Why should I choose OoberKidsRepublic?

How much does OoberKidsRepublic cost?

We believe education is a ‘basic’ of life not a ‘luxury’, so we price our services accordingly. Our prices depends on the subscription you choose. A subscription to one subject only costs the equivalent of a latte & a muffin. We also give you choice; you can subscribe to one subject, two subjects or all three for a few days, weeks or for a whole year AND you can opt for one single age group (for example: English & Maths Year 3) or you can even mix age groups (for example: Year 3 English & Year 4 Maths). The point is: it will not break the bank AND you can pay monthly, if you prefer to spread the cost. See for yourself here.

What happens when I or my company sponsor/s a class or a school?

Sponsoring a school is the best gift you can give to your community. When you sponsor a class or a school, you can either indicate a sponsorship recipient or, if you prefer, we can find one for you, taking care of all the practical aspects: liaising with the right person at the school, enrolling the children, making sure their subscriptions run smoothly and keeping the responsible teacher/s abreast of news. Your generosity meanwhile will be celebrated (unless you choose to remain anonymous): we will post news of your sponsorship on our Facebook page and will mention it in our newsletters.

What steps have you taken to make OoberKidsRepublic safe?

Our top priority is to protect your child while they enjoy our online experience. While we recommend supervising your child when they use the internet, we have taken steps to ensure their safety when they use our website.

We have established links with officially recognised child-protection and internet safety organisations, such as the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) and Childnet International, whose focus is on children’s internet safety.

OoberKidsRepublic™ is also registered with the UK Information Commissioner, responsible for ensuring that organisations such as ours take all necessary steps to protect the online, personal data. We also do not store your passwords (children’s or adults’). When you sign up we send you editable jpeg files, we call them ‘log in cards’. You can save your log in cards in your computer and edit them every time you change your details or you can print them off. The point is: your passwords remain private and in the best hands possible: yours!

What is the Chat Hut?

We sometimes organise chatting sessions for our subscribers. We recommend parents to always supervise their children but we also monitor each chat hut session. Children will be allowed to help each other with homework but they will not be allowed to cut and paste from the premium material. Kids will not be allowed to use their real names and no exchange of personal details will be allowed during their chatroom sessions either. Inappropriate language would lead to exclusion from the ongoing session and, if repeated, it would result in complete expulsion from the chat hut.

I want my child to be more physically active. Can you help?

We understand this is a pressing concern for most parents these days. With OoberKidsRepublic you can actually encourage an active life style with OoberKidsRepublic by awarding extra points to your kids for activities such as having regular walks or running errands. The points will accrue when an adult clicks on the ‘Give Points’ icon available in the Manage Children section available in each adult’s profile.


Additionally, we publicise free, child-friendly activities for all the family in our Fun Event Shop.

What else is on offer?

Parents/teachers/tutors, you have access to our beautifully illustrated parents' forum - the OoberCafé. If you like trying new recipes, check our cookery page for a taste of traditional Italian cookery. We also discuss the educational and parenting issues of the day in our blog. Life is very busy and at OoberKidsRepublic we’d like to help you keep ahead of dentist appointments, ballet classes, tennis tutorials or drama classes. Make a note in the Things To Do icon in the Manage Children section available in each adult’s profile, select a date for the reminder and we will e-mail you to remind you of this all- important ‘thing to do’.

Children, have your say with our surveys, keep in touch with friends and family with our e-cards or relax with our fun yoga videos and games.

Who prepares the educational material?

We are very lucky to have secured three experienced and highly qualified primary school teachers/tutors. The yoga videos are provided by a qualified teacher while managing director, Cecilia Valente, is responsible for the recipes, news and blogs. For more information check the ‘About’ page.
