The centre was established in 2008 and is very popular with children from all the local schools in the area and those from in and around the area too.
The class is based in a large hall on Bushey Hill Road, which is easily accessible from both Peckham and Camberwell. There is free parking on the road and a large comfortable waiting room for parents and siblings to use.
The class is a calm, focused environment where independence and concentration is encouraged amongst all students including the very young ones. There are eight class assistants working alongside the Instructor at each class. The class is split into different levels with staff at different level to ensure that students are monitored closely.
There is a specific area for newly enrolled students, where children are given more intensive interaction with the staff to enable them to settle in and learn the class process, before integrating with other students.
Kumon caters for students of all ages and abilities, and the students at the centre currently range from four years old to 15 years old. Many of the students have been studying Kumon for over a year. The longest attending student has been studying since she was in Year one and has just completed her fifth year of Kumon.
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.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
