The study centre opened in 1999, enabling children in the mid-Sussex area the opportunity to study the Kumon Maths Programme. In April 2003, the centre expanded the subjects on offer to also include the Kumon English Programme.
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 centre is located at the Sidney West Sport and Community Centre, which is off Leylands Road, Burgess Hill. The centre has off street parking.
Students at the centre come from Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath and Lindfield, as well as other villages in mid-Sussex. They attend local primary and secondary schools from both the state and private sector.
Kumon is suitable for students of all ages. Currently, the youngest student is four and the oldest student is 13. The longest attending student has been studying Kumon maths for five-and-a-half years.
