The centre was established in 1996. Students can drop in at a time best suited to themselves during the sessions.
Some students at this centre have been studying with Kumon for over 12 years. Students at the centre currently range in age from five to 18 years old, and are of a very wide range of abilities. Kumon is suitable for 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.
During the time the child is studying at the centre, parents are welcome to wait in the waiting area. The centre is held in classrooms at The Westgate School; there are some public parking bays immediately outside on Cheriton Road, and parents are also welcome to park in the Westgate School car park.
Along with the Instructor, Rachel Reeve, the centre's team of ten trained assistants are on hand to provide guidance where necessary. Students see the Instructor before they leave for the chance to talk about their progress and goals, reassess their abilities and to be given appropriate feedback and praise for their achievements at every visit.
