About this centre

Online Class Available
The Harrogate Centre has been established for over 20 years and provides a peaceful working environment for children studying Kumon's maths and English programmes. Our aim is to develop confident, independent learners, who have the skills and ability to thrive at school and beyond.

Located on Westmoreland Street, the centre contains a reception and parents waiting area. Students work in a separate purpose-built classroom with an Instructor and team of assistants supporting them.

Students benefit from the use of a reading area containing over 300 books, as featured on the Kumon Recommended Reading List. A love of reading is something we are keen to encourage at Kumon.

New students and early learners are closely monitored in a dedicated area of the classroom. Once they have developed effective study skills, they begin to work independently, though still under our guidance. We aim to continuously develop their confidence and encourage self-learning, enabling them to reach their full potential.

We are also able to support students with remote learning over the internet if they are unable to attend the centre.

A free ‘drop of and pick up’ car park is located right next to the centre kindly provided by The Mowbray Community Church.
My name is David Riddle and have been teaching in schools and colleges for over 17 years.

As a parent of two young boys, I understand the importance of helping children to enjoy learning. It is also very important to help children develop their existing skills and discover the benefits of independent study.

The Kumon Method of Learning helps children to thrive. Many of the students at my centre are working above their school grade level, some as far as four years ahead of other children their age.

Conversely, some of the children who attend the centre started initially because their parents felt they were struggling slightly at school. Because the Kumon Method is so individualised, these children are also making rapid progress.

At Kumon, we truly believe our methods enable any child to unlock their full potential. We do this in way, which builds their confidence, self-esteem and makes them determined to be independent learners.

If you believe Kumon could help your child, do not hesitate to contact me.

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.
