The centre is run from the St Mary’s Church Hall in Park Road. There is free parking for a limited time on Park Road and Unity Road (behind the centre). The centre has disabled access and there is a pleasant waiting area for parents/guardians while their child is doing their work in class.
Students mainly come from local schools in Sittingbourne but some come from neighbouring towns including Faversham, Sheerness and Queenborough. Current ages of students at the centre range from three to 16 years old; although students of all ages and abilities are welcome.
The centre opened in 2012 and has since then helped many students to pursue their potential and develop their ability. Students build up confidence and other study skills needed for them to make progress in school and beyond.
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.
Alongside the Instructor, there are a team of friendly and approachable class assistants to help new students learn the class routine. They also closely monitor and encourage all students in developing their self-learning and correction skills.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
