The centre opened in 2000 and offers the Kumon Maths and English Programmes to children of all ages and abilities. It is a thriving, vibrant centre with students currently ranging from three to 18 years old.
The centre is conveniently located in the Sacred Heart Church, very close to the heart of town. There is plenty of free parking available, as well as a separate waiting area for parents. There are soft drinks, tea and coffee available for both parents and their children.
Students attend the centre once or twice a week and spend approximately 30 minutes for each subject studied at the centre. The Instructor and the eight trained assistants support students’ learning. All new students and early learners (pre-school and reception) work in a separate area alongside two assistants dedicated to those students. There is also a reading area with books available and a separate area which students use to develop their mental arithmetic and times tables skills.
Students enrolled on the English programme have their oral reading skills assessed during each class. Students attending the centre enjoy the calm, friendly, and supportive atmosphere where they can both concentrate and develop study skills and academic skills. Homework is completed on a daily basis.
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.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
