About this centre

Childcare vouchers accepted Free Trial for Young Learners Ofsted Registered

We are offering a two-week Free Trial for Young Learners in 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 centre was established in 2006.

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.

Weekly visits to the centre are an important focal point of your child’s Kumon programme, with students spending 20-30 minutes in class once or twice a week. The early start on Thursdays is for pre-school students and students who are home-schooled and would like to fit Kumon into their timetable. Many of the students come to the centre via personal recommendation, and there are students coming from across the borough of Bromley and further afield.

Students currently range from pre-schoolers to A-level students and the centre welcomes children of all ages and abilities, whether they require further support to succeed academically or are seeking an additional challenge so they can fulfil their potential.

The centre has a committed and hard-working team of eight assistants who work alongside the Instructor.

Hello, my name is Marie Murphy.

I am a dyslexia-trained teacher with many years of experience teaching children of all abilities, teaching and assessing children within primary school and privately. One of the most important things I found when teaching dyslexic children or adults is the individual lesson plan each child or adult has. Even when you have a number of dyslexic students they all have different needs and a one-size-fits-all definitely does not apply.

This is what attracted me so much to the Kumon Method, that I could give all students the opportunity to have an individual programme, enabling each child to reach his or her full potential. For some students this means the opportunity to have repetition or practice for as long as necessary and for others it means they can excel and get ahead in maths or English. It is an absolute privilege to be in a position to give so many children this opportunity of Kumon from pre-school to A-level and beyond.

Not only are students improving their academic ability in my study centre but they are also learning the skills of concentration and independent working. It is very rewarding to see shy and worried children develop into confident and able students.

I would be delighted to welcome you to my centre.

Most Popular Questions

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.
