How will Kumon help my child with their schoolwork?

Apr 2013
Independent learning skills enhance the students' performance right across the school curriculum

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. To achieve this, Kumon study takes students beyond the level they are studying at school and provides learning materials which are unfamiliar to compel them to develop new learning strategies to deal effectively with new challenges.

These independent learning skills, once developed, then enhance the students' performance right across the school curriculum. We believe each Kumon student has the potential to study advanced work, beyond the international standard for their age, empowering them to get the best out of school and succeed in the global community.

Kumon operates at exactly the right level for each student regardless of their age, again ensuring that the material each one encounters extends and develops their skills, confidence and ability. This kind of individual differentiation is a unique benefit of the programme and makes it an effective complement to the school curriculum. Through completion of advanced work, children can really begin to realise their unlimited potential.

At Kumon, learning is always for the long run: our programmes prepare students for success both at school and beyond.
