At Kumon, we have a desire to create a generation of confident, independent learners who take pride in their studies. Our approach to learning is therefore different to traditional methods of supplementary education. We develop children through the acquisition of independent learning skills, rather than teaching in the conventional sense.
The Kumon programmes are worksheet-based study programmes, designed to pursue the potential of each child. Central to the Kumon Method is the principal of giving students the confidence and courage to confront new challenges and pursue their own goals.
On each programme, students start at their own, individually set, starting point and move through the levels at their own pace.
Having built a strong foundation in the way they study, including developing pace, concentration and rhythm, students begin to work independently. They learn to correct their own mistakes, further increasing their ability to solve new problems, as they smoothly progress to higher-level work beyond their school level.
Through completion of advanced work we are able to maximise each student’s ability and begin to realise their true potential. Our students develop life-long study skills and a passion for learning, equipping them for a successful future.
