The unique Kumon maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Since opening in 2012, the Kumon Erdington Study Centre has nurtured hundreds of students aged three to 16, helping them develop the necessary skills to tackle work beyond their school level. We’ve seen children who lacked in confidence come running into class eager to show off their latest achievement certificates from school.
At Kumon we realise that each child is different and learns in different ways. The free assessment we carry out provides a starting point appropriate to your child’s current level of ability and identifies any areas needing development. A study plan is then drawn up and, as your child moves through the programme, their progress is continuously monitored, with the aim of reaching an advanced level.
Students complete daily worksheets and visit the centre once or twice a week, for about 30 minutes. When in class, your child’s study skills are observed and developed in line with the Kumon Method of Learning.
The centre is based in the heart of Erdington, at Erdington Academy. There is ample free parking on site, plus a comfortable waiting area for parents. Depending on your child’s required level of support, they will sit in either the ‘early learner’ section of the classroom or the main area dedicated to independent learning. Students excelling in the programme move up to the ‘high-level students’ area of the room, in recognition of their achievements.
Whether you want to catch up or get ahead in school, the Kumon programmes can help.
Similar to other tuition providers the Kumon programmes focus on essential academic skills, but we go one step further by developing a child’s independent study skills, needed for school, university, employment and all other aspects of adult life.
