The centre was established in 1995 and has been run by its present Instructor since 2001. During this time, many of the students have attained levels of competence way above their age and two students have completed the whole English programme.
Classes take place twice weekly in a large, fully accessible ground floor room. Furniture is of two different sizes allowing all students to sit and work comfortably at correctly sized tables and chairs.
At present, students at the centre currently range from four to 16 years of age, although Kumon caters for children of all ages and abilities. The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Each class in the centre has four assistants plus the Instructor, and thus no student should have to wait for more than a few minutes for further guidance or to have their class work marked.
The Stamford Study Centre usually has the use of the church car park and a downstairs waiting room. Students with parents waiting in the church car park are escorted back to their parents by an assistant when they have finished their work in the centre.
The centre is close to the town centre, with its many small shops, banks etc. The large car park in North Street is within 100 metres of the centre.
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.
