The Kumon Maidstone South Study Centre provides individualised maths and English programmes for children of all ages and abilities. We also warmly welcome pre-schoolers for whom there is dedicated support available.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
The study centre is based at the Maidstone YMCA, located just minutes from the town centre. Easily accessible by bus and car, there is a large car park directly outside the venue. A café on the ground floor serves as an ideal waiting area for parents.
Students usually study in class for between 30 minutes to an hour. The atmosphere at the centre is calm, friendly and relaxed. Progress is celebrated and our students are rewarded with certificates and prizes when they reach key milestones in the programme, as well as for regular attendance. Regular parents' evenings are held to keep you updated on your child's progress.
Unlike the process of a traditional tuition provider, Kumon encourages students to take their learning into their own hands. The role of the Kumon Instructor is to provide guidance, support and encouragement, allowing the student to develop their own independent learning strategies.
Our students are from the local and neighbouring areas and attend both state and independent schools. Starting at a level appropriate for them, students usually reach an impressive standard equivalent to a year above their mainstream school grade or more, within the first year of joining us.
