The study centre has been running since 2006 and is conveniently located in the heart of Timperley at the Timperley Village Club on Stockport Road. There is ample parking behind the building and there are local shops and major bus routes on the doorstep. There is a waiting room and toilets for parents and siblings next to the classroom.
Classes run on at the centre twice a week and students usually spend approximately 30-45 minutes in the centre.
Kumon is suitable for all ages and abilities, and students currently at the study centre range in age from three-and-a-half to 16 years old. The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
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.
There are students who have been at the centre for over five years and almost every month there are new starters. The study centre has a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere so any initial anxieties are quickly forgotten. Students work individually although there are plenty of assistants on hand to give guidance and encouragement to students as and when they may need it.
