Launched in 2008, the centre is based at The Scout Hall, a convenient Ashford location easily accessible by public transport, car or on foot. The hall has disabled access and parking, ample free parking at the front and further parking on the side roads. There is a waiting area for families to sit whilst their children are in class.
The Ashford North Study Centre is spacious and has a warm, friendly atmosphere with professional standards in place. The centre welcomes students of all ages and abilities. Students currently attending have been studying with us for a number of years and range in age from three years up to 18 years and include all abilities.
In the study hall, early-learners are provided with the necessary support to help them develop their skills. Similarly, newly-enrolled students are closely monitored and guided to develop their self-learning skills to ensure that they are capable of working independently and confidently.
The centre awards advanced students in recognition of their achievements.
Following a free assessment, students start studying the programmes at a point that is specific to their individual needs and ability.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners though 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.
