It is currently located at excellent facilities at St Swithun's Parish Centre, Yateley. The parish centre provides a light, airy study room, a pleasant waiting area for parents and siblings and there is also a large car park.
During classes, there is the benefit of a number of assistants, who help to maximise the learning experience of the students. Some of the assistants are older Kumon students, who are studying the higher levels of the maths and English programmes.
Students at the centre come from a variety of different local schools, in the state and independent sectors, and most live in Sandhurst, Yateley, Crowthorne, Camberley or Hartley Witney. A number of children at the centre also live further away and these students usually come from word of mouth. Students of all ages, abilities and backgrounds are welcome to the Sandhurst centre.
At present, the youngest student is four years old and the oldest is an adult. We have children learning to read and another who has just completed the Kumon programme. The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Kumon should not be considered a traditional tuition provider as, rather than ‘teaching’ students, we encourage them to become independent learners who feel confident in their own abilities and able to face unfamiliar work.
