The Kumon Stratford Study Centre was established in 2014. It is located in the centre of Stratford town, within short walking distance of most local schools, as well as Maryland and Stratford train stations.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study. As an education provider, we are proud to participate in the growth and development of Stratford, and aim to develop young individuals that will positively contribute to their local community.
The current age range for students at the centre is three to 16 years old. We have a small team of fully vetted and trained assistants working with the Instructor to support all student development. There is a designated early learners’ (pre-school and reception) area, where we focus on developing study skills in order to facilitate a smooth transition, over time, to independent study.
At Kumon, we believe in nurturing a love of reading. We therefore have a designated reading area, where all children are encouraged to select a book and read to the Instructor or class assistant on a regular basis. Children are also encouraged to write book reviews that we will from time to time select to publish in our regular centre newsletters.
Parents are kept well-informed of events and news at the centre through electronic newsletters, emails and mobile texts. Furthermore, we offer 6-monthly progress meetings with parents and students, and an annual award ceremony to celebrate the performance of our students.
The centre benefits from a large parent waiting area. The reception is fully manned, with all entrants to the building required to sign in and out; an important child safeguarding feature.
