We are offering a two-week Free Trial for Young Learners in April and May. This offer is open to children in school years Reception and below. Places are limited, so give us a call to find out more.
The Kumon Canada Water Study Centre provides maths and English programmes for students of all ages and abilities. The centre opened in 2012 and many of the students attend schools and live in the local community and some travel from nearby neighbourhoods.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Whilst waiting for your child to complete their daily Kumon work in the centre, parents or guardians can browse the books in the library, use an internet access point or grab a coffee. A text message service informs parents when children are ready to be picked up.
There are seven assistants who work in the centre alongside the Instructor, supporting the students' development.
Kumon should not be considered a traditional tuition provider as, rather than ‘teaching’ students, we encourage them to become independent learners who feel confident in their own abilities and able to face unfamiliar work.
Hello, my name is Snezha Stoyanova and I am the Instructor at the Canada Water Study Centre.
I have come a long way from volunteering and professional youth work, through adult community learning, to fulfil my dream of setting up my own Kumon Study Centre at the beginning of 2012. I am passionate about helping young people and adults to achieve their full potential.
In my centre I encourage my students to become independent learners, to take responsibility for their own study and success and most importantly, to learn from their own mistakes. It is both fascinating and rewarding to see how their eyes light up when they complete their work, after learning something new, or when they tackle a difficult task on their own.
My students continue to amaze me regularly with their accomplishments which are far beyond what is expected for their age. I take great pride when a parent or student comes to me with news from school about how they have moved up a set or exceeded their expectations after studying Kumon.
I look forward to discussing the programme with you and would be delighted to welcome your child to the Kumon Canada Water Study Centre.

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.
They don't. A Kumon student progresses based on their current ability and not their age, although we believe that every child has unlimited potential and can ultimately tackle advanced work through well-paced and individualised instruction. We have children of similar ages studying different material and children of different ages studying the same material. Everything is dependent on the student's needs, not on how old they are.
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.
Kumon is a self-learning programme but each student receives 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, making sure that work is set at the right level and that they are developing at the right pace.
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.
