The centre provides maths and English programmes for students of all ages and abilities. Many of the students attend schools within the area and live in the local community.
At present, students at the centre range from pre-schoolers to sixth formers. The youngest student is currently three years old and is studying both programmes. The oldest student is 15 years old and has been with Kumon for six years.
The study centre is located in a church hall which is light, spacious and warm. There is a parents waiting area situated adjacent to the study area where parents can wait and chat quietly to other Kumon parents while their child is in class.
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.
The Bingley Study Centre is fast becoming an essential part of the community as more and more families experience positive results of just a small amount of study each day.
