The centre was established in 1993, with the current Instructor taking over the centre in 2013. Classes run from Wrenthorpe Village Hall which is in close proximity to a number of local schools. The Wrenthorpe Village Hall has good car parking facilities and is easily accessible.
The Instructor is supported by six class assistants who are all graduates and support with the marking and recording of students work, working with early learners and newly enrolled students. The assistants are all currently studying the programmes and are, therefore, able to support students with their Kumon journeys.
The youngest student currently studying at the centre is three years old and the oldest is 14, however Kumon is available to students 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.
Unlike the process of a traditional tuition provider, Kumon encourages students to take their learning into their own hands. The role of the Kumon Instructor is to provide guidance, support and encouragement, allowing the student to develop their own independent learning strategies.
In the centre there is also an area for number board activities and there is a range of books at the centre that students can read to complement their worksheet study. The centre has appropriately-sized furniture for early learners.
There is a separate waiting area for parents and siblings, which has magazines available for parents and a number of educational toys for siblings. The parent waiting area also has a parent communication book and a post box for any comments to be placed in; any queries or questions that are placed in the post box are followed up after class.
