About this centre
**COVID-19 UPDATE: All classes are running online throughout lockdown restrictions**
The Loughton centre runs three times a week, with a mixture of time slotted incentre and online classes. The centre itself is in the Loughton Methodist Church, where there is a comfortable waiting area for parents and a play area for younger siblings.
The unique Kumon programme encourages children to work independently through challenges creating a positive approach to study. At the Loughton study centre, we aim to make our students feel at ease and create a safe space for them to ‘have a go’ and learn through mistakes. We have a mixture of students from as young as three years old who enjoy discovering their potential at the centre!
On arrival, your child will be greeted by our lovely receptionist. They will be asked to sign in and be directed upstairs, where they will meet the instructor and the team of class assistants. They will then take a seat, swap their old work with new and begin their work in a calm and quiet environment. Once completed, your child can read a book while waiting for their work to be marked. After completing corrections, they are free to sign out and leave.
I had such a positive experience studying Kumon myself that I wanted to pursue a career in guiding others and inspire children to enjoy learning. I first became a Kumon class assistant and got a taste of what it would be like to run my own centre. After completing my degree (in nutrition, I also love food, who doesn’t!) and gaining experiencing working with children in a special needs school, I started to work my way towards becoming an instructor.
I have been through the Kumon journey (and still going) as a student, as an instructor and now as a parent. My son has just started his Kumon journey, and believe me, I can relate! Having the advantage of experiencing all sides, I have a clear view of what I want for each of my students. I want them to LOVE learning, I want them to be INSPIRED by my instruction and I want their inner voice to say, ‘I CAN’.

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.
