About this centre

The Kumon Maths and English Study Programmes aim to help students of any age and ability to progress their skills and build key foundations for learning. Throughout the programmes, we develop children’s self-learning skills, build up their confidence and enable them to tackle challenging work without reliance on a teacher. 

Students visit their local study centre up to twice a week where Instructor will observe their learning growth and set work accordingly. As work is set according to ability and progress, regardless of age or school year, Kumon programmes allow learners both to fill in any missing gaps in their study foundations as well as to enjoy the opportunity to work ahead of their school grade level.

As children develop into a confident and enthusiastic self-learner, they are developing not only academic knowledge in Maths and English but also transferable skills that will help them achieve across all other subjects and a successful future.
My name is Flora Lau. In my early career I was an editor of primary students’ textbooks, and subsequently, I have been a voluntary teacher in a Sunday Chinese School and most recently a class assistant at a Kumon Centre. My career has always been associated with education, and I strongly believe that each child is unique, full of potential and with the right support, they can achieve far beyond our expectations.

I also have personal experience of being a Kumon parent. My two boys joined Kumon programmes from an early age, and I observe their progress and improvement every day. The Kumon programmes have not only built up their strengths, abilities and confidence in Maths and English but have also helped them become confident and independent learners. Such qualities will undoubtedly benefit them for their whole lives. My observations have led me to passionately believe in the Kumon method and consequently open this study centre with the hope to spread its benefits to other children.

If you would like to give your child a head-start in life, contact me for more information and to make an appointment for an assessment.

I look forward to welcoming your child to the Kumon Ashley Down Study Centre.

Most Popular Questions

Kumon is a self-learning programme with each student receiving regular support from their Instructor. The carefully developed worksheets teach students how to find the answer for themselves, whilst their Instructor offers guidance when necessary. The key role of each Kumon Instructor is to observe their students working, either in the centre or their online class, making sure that work is set at the right level and that they are developing at the right pace.

Students can start learning with Kumon from age two upwards. We currently have students as young as two years old studying with us, ranging all the way up to those about to go to university; Kumon helps children of any age and any ability. The sooner children begin, the earlier they can start developing skills to gain the greatest cumulative benefit; as soon as you feel your family is ready to make the commitment to long-term study, Kumon will be ready to help you achieve your goal.

Kumon offers much more than tutoring and differs from traditional teaching in the classroom. Rather than preparing children for a particular test or assessment, Kumon empowers students to learn for themselves, through individualised instruction and carefully developed worksheets.

As well as developing key skills in maths and English, each Kumon student will work towards building their independent learning skills and confidence in their own abilities. This means that a Kumon student will not be dependent on – or limited by – the skills and knowledge of others.

As a global programme, Kumon does not follow a school curriculum, but rather is complementary to curricula across the world. The primary aim of the Kumon Method is to develop independent learning skills. These independent learning skills enhance the students’ performance right across the school curriculum. Kumon operates at exactly the right level for each student – regardless of their age – ensuring that work set extends and develops their skills, confidence and ability.
