The centre was first established in 2009 and has grown rapidly since. Classes are held twice a week at The Surbiton Hill Methodist Church in Ewell Road which is within a few minutes walking distance from most of the local schools. Facilities include free parking and a large waiting room for parents and siblings.
Although Kumon programmes cater for all ages, at present the study centre has students between the ages of four to 14 years old. The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
The centre operates on a drop-in basis, which usually takes between 20 to 30 minutes per subject. The venue is usually organised into six to seven stations with an assistant supervising each one, each station can seat five to six children at any time.
The Surbiton Study Centre prides itself on providing an environment in which children can reach their potential, develop their self-learning skills and confidence in order to achieve excellence.
Through daily study, both at the study centre and independently at home, Kumon goes further than traditional methods of tuition by ensuring students maintain a level of development every day.
