The Kumon Ilkley Study Centre was established in 2011. Kumon classes run from Christchurch, which is situated in the centre of Ilkley. The venue is easily accessible by public transport and on foot and is a short walk from many of the local schools.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study. The youngest student currently studying at the centre is four years old and the oldest is currently 14 years old, however Kumon is for students of all ages and abilities. Many of the students that attend the study centre also attend the local schools.
There are a dedicated team of class assistants at the centre, including the senior class assistant who is a retired primary teacher that brings her wealth and experience of working with children to the centre. The assistants work closely with the Instructor to ensure that all students are fully supported.
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.
Supplementary activities such as Numberboards and a selection of books are also available in the centre to support students with their learning.
There is a car park opposite the venue that provides ample parking for the study centre. There is also a separate waiting area for parents and siblings, where there are copies of educational magazines for parents to read and class newsletters to keep parents up to date with any class news.
