The centre provides maths and English programmes for students of all ages, with students at the centre currently aged between three and 15.
It is located in the bright and airy hall at Westborough Church near the corner of Southway and Aldershot Road. It is wheelchair and pushchair accessible and there is a comfortable waiting area for parents. The centre is easily accessible by local transport, and is close to local bus stops. It is also reached easily by foot from most of the local schools and there is plenty of parking for those driving to the centre.
The centre opened in 2011 and has since then helped many students to pursue their potential and develop their ability. Many of the students come from schools and areas in Guildford, but may also come from further afield, including Farnham, Cranleigh, Horsley and North Hampshire. Students from all areas are welcomed at the centre.
Students aged five and below work in a separate area from the older students and their study and development is supported by the centre assistant who is experienced in working with younger (including pre-school) children.
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.
