The centre provides maths and English study programmes for students of all ages and abilities. Having opened in 2010, it is now well established and serves a wide area including Sandbach, Middlewich, Crewe and Haslington.
Students at the centre currently range in age from four to 16 years old. The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
All the Kumon classes are run at the Wesley Centre, which has recently been upgraded to be modern classroom facilities that provide an excellent environment conducive to learning. Private parking is available at the centre and there is also a separate room available for parents to wait whilst their children are completing their daily Kumon work. Both the classroom and waiting rooms are situated on the ground floor of the building.
The classes are run by the Instructor, who is supported by four assistants on Monday classes and three assistants on Thursday classes. Two of the assistants are ex-primary school teachers and the other is a senior high school student. The assistants perform a number of different tasks, but are primarily there to support the students in their work.
At the classes, alongside the worksheets, reading is done with English students and mental arithmetic with the maths students.
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.
