Compulsory Education ages: Ages 5–14, when a child is 5 years old by September 1

Homeschooling is legal, per §60.1 of the Education & Training Act (14 April 2010), which states: Children must receive “suitable education either by regular attendance at school or otherwise.”

Under the “or otherwise” phrase in the law, families can legally homeschool. However, homeschooling is uncommon.
