About this centre
Welcome to the Cardiff, Canton Study Centre.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
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.
Many of the students attend schools within the area and live in the local community. Students of all ages and abilities are catered for and current students at the study centre range in age from six to 14 years old.
There are experienced class assistants working alongside the Instructor to support the students' development. The senior assistant is Liane Winter, who is an ex-English secondary school teacher and who was head of sixth form at Radyr Comprehensive School.
My name is Jane Jones and I am the Instructor at the Cardiff, Canton Study Centre.
I have only had my own centre since late 2012 but prior to this worked as the senior assistant at the Whitchurch Study Centre. It was during my time at Whitchurch that made me think I would like to open my own centre as I could see first-hand the benefits of the Kumon study programmes.
At Whitchurch, I learned all about the class procedure, how the children worked on a daily basis and got an understanding of the Kumon worksheets and the programme which provides the children the tools to reach their full potential.
My own experience started when my own daughter attended Kumon classes to study the Kumon English Programme - within a few months the improvement was clear to see and the feedback from her school was impressive.
I find working with children of all ages very inspiring as the programme can be tailored to all ages and abilities. Each day and each child is a new challenge. It is so rewarding to see them improve and flourish and the gratitude from parents is the cherry on the cake.

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.
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.
