The centre opened its doors in 2002 and has continued to provide a safe and enjoyable learning experience for the past ten years.
Carrie James is the Instructor at the centre and, along with her team of four assistants, is dedicated to delivering a high level of support to each individual student and their family in a calm, focused, nurturing and friendly way.
Kumon is suitable for children of all ages, and students at the centre currently range from four to 16 years old, and are from a wide geographical area and attend a broad selection of schools. Many students have attended the centre for several years. The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Kumon should not be considered a traditional tuition provider as, rather than ‘teaching’ students, we encourage them to become independent learners who feel confident in their own abilities and able to face unfamiliar work.
Kumon Andover moved to new premises in September 2014. Classes are now based in an environment dedicated to learning, with a quiet area for parents to relax whilst their children do their daily study. By having its own space, Kumon Andover is able to offer an increased number of classes, including Saturday morning, and more flexibility around the times of diagnostic testing.
The centre will now be able to offer adult learning and in the near future will introduce Early Learner sessions for very young children.
Unit 23 is part of Walworth Enterprise Centre, just off the ring road and near Jungle Jungle and the dance school. There is ample free parking and disabled access.
The team at the Andover Study Centre would like you to come and visit the centre and see how more and more parents and students are experiencing the benefits of Kumon.
