Ability development for any child at any age

Our maths programme helps children of all ages and ability levels to develop maths skills and a love of numbers. Our students are aged two to older children and each one is assessed at the beginning of their Kumon journey to ensure they work at just the right level. Study is set according to ability, regardless of age or school year, making it the obvious choice for any student wanting to progress or excel in maths.
The programme goes right from the very basics of recognising numbers all the way to complex mathematical theories in small steps, building ability gradually along the way. We believe that every child has the potential to succeed in maths and our experienced Instructors support them to achieve this. Students acquire an ability to self-learn while developing understanding and fluency of each topic before moving on to another.

Levels 6A to 4A aims for students to be able to recite numbers and count whilst pointing to the written numbers. At this level our worksheets make strong use of images, dot pictures and number tables to enable early learners to recognise, recite, read and understand number sequence, gradually increasing exposure to a larger range of numbers as they become ready. They first focus on numbers 1-5, then 1-10, 11-20 and so on, all the way up to 100, as well as writing numbers independently up to 50.
Levels 3A to D deepens number sequence understanding before introducing the main operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Each operation is introduced with smaller numbers and single digits at first, increasing to larger numbers and double digits and so on. The methodology is also gradually advanced, from horizontal to vertical addition and subtraction, as well as multiplication and division, through small steps and half-worked questions to help children progress.
In levels E and F students get to grips with fractions, enabling them to complete addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of fractions through examples and introductory problems. As their confidence and speed grows they move on to more complex problems, learning the correct order of steps to work out the solution, finding the Least Common Denominators and Least Common Multiples, working up to three fractions and four operations. Learners will also start to become more familiar with decimals.
Levels G to I aims to help students master positive and negative numbers using the four operations, as well as algebraic expressions and equations. Students are encouraged to write out the steps that they make to get to the solution until they are familiar with the process. Algebraic complexity increases, completing operations with monomials and then polynomials before moving on to factorisation, square roots, quadratic equations and functions and Pythagorean Theorem. Students build the skills to solve problems accurately, writing down appropriate intermediate steps.
Kumon students complete daily Kumon study at home and attend their study centre twice a week. The time taken to complete a day’s work may be around 30 minutes per subject, although this study time can vary.
When visiting the study centre, students complete their day’s worksheets and are observed and guided by the Instructor and a team of Assistants. Time spent at the study centre allows the Instructor to support your child in their studies and ensure that they are progressing well. Whilst at the study centre, students hand in work that has been completed and marked at home, as well as collecting work for the following days until their next study centre visit.
Students come once or twice a week to ensure the Instructor can develop their self-learning and academic skills
Homework involves daily study completed and marked prior to arrival
Students complete work that the Instructor has set to develop their skills and ensure they are progressing
Instructors observe students and instruct when necessary
Assistants mark work and students do corrections immediately to aid learning
It is important to us that each student leaves with a sense of achievement motivated for the next challenge
