The centre was established in 1998 and is currently located at Christchurch URC Chase Side, which is very close to the local schools.
The current age range of students at the centre is four to 16 years old. However, Kumon is suitable for all ages and abilities. The youngest students have the comfort of working at small tables and chairs and there will always be assistants at these early learner tables to work alongside the students.
There is a team of 12 well-trained assistants on hand to support the students' development.
The class is structured to suit every student's learning. Within the centre, there is an independent reading area for the English students, and a dedicated reading assistant is available to assist the younger readers. There is an enrolment table, which is a designated area for new students to be observed. In addition, there is a board game section for the younger maths students, which allows them to develop their number sequences in an enjoyable environment.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Through daily study, both at the study centre and independently at home, Kumon goes further than traditional methods of tuition by ensuring students maintain a level of development every day.
There are car park facilities for parents at the church which can accommodate 30 cars at any one time. There is a separate waiting room at the centre for parents' use, while their child is in class.
