The centre offer maths and English study programmes and welcomes children of all ages and abilities. People from all walks of life are attracted to the centre.
Classes are held at The Salvation Army in Chalk Farm. It is a large and comfortable space with an area for parents to wait while their child is in class and where they can meet other Kumon parents and share experiences of their children's progress through the Kumon study programmes. The study centre has good rail and transport links and also has nearby parking.
There is an excellent team of assistants at the centre, who are regularly trained so as to enable them to do their best for the children. They work closely with the students and join the Instructor in observing and assessing every student at the centre and providing feedback.
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.
The youngest student is under three years old and the oldest is 15. Many of the children have been with the centre for several years and have grown to work independently and confidently. The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
