The centre opened in 1992 and provides the Kumon Maths and English Programmes for students of all ages and abilities.
Currently, students attending the centre range between the ages of four and 14 years old, from schools in the area and surrounding areas. The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
The Swansea, Mumbles Study Centre is based in the Linden Christian Centre just off the Mumbles Road in West Cross. It occupies a large carpeted hall with plenty of chairs and tables to work on. Although the centre is busy with students coming and going, people have often remarked how quiet the room is with students focused on their studies. There is a friendly supportive atmosphere where students can receive the help and support they need.
The Instructor, Sally Seden-Fowler, is always available to help with work in class and there are at least five assistant to support students. There is also a dedicated table for young students and English reading.
There is parking and disabled access at the study centre, as well as a small waiting area for parents to wait and chat while their child is in class.
Kumon can also be studied by a combination of correspondence and attendance at 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.
