What is Kumon?
Kumon Math and Reading Centers develop the untapped potential of each and every child through building confidence and developing skills in the fundamental building blocks of math and reading. At Kumon, we believe that every child has the potential to learn far beyond our expectations. It is the job of our Kumon Center to encourage each individual child to want to learn, to enjoy learning, and to be capable of studying successfully in the future.
With the Kumon Method of learning, your child can develop a solid foundation in math and reading as well as improved concentration and enhanced self-confidence. The key to learning with Kumon is to start the child at a comfortable starting point, where he or she can consistently solve 100% of the problems in a given amount of time. This approach increases self-confidence and allows the student to experience success right from the start.
Individualized Instruction lets each Kumon student advance according to individual ability rather than age or grade level. To accomplish this, the Kumon curriculum presents math and reading concepts in small increments, providing ample practice for each step. This method of individualized learning encourages independent learning, giving students the knowledge and skills to study on their own.
Through repeated practice, students develop mastery of skills before moving on to a higher level of study. Since the goal of the Kumon Method is to make high school study easy, Kumon students are encouraged to reach an advanced level of study.
Early Learners Program
The Pleasanton and Pleasanton-North Kumon centers also provide the Early Learners Program for Pre-school and Kindergarten age students run by a specially trained and certified Kumon instructor.
Our Early Learners program is designed to help students in Kindergarten and Pre-school to develop pre-reading and math skills. We focus on helping young children develop the vital learning skills of basic phonics, vocabulary, memory, and number-sense through the Kumon worksheets as well as various other classroom activities. We make learning fun and enjoyable while providing parental education about how to help students practice homework at home. Pre-school and Kindergarten students attend class once or twice a week. We recommend Pre-school and Kindergarten students to study both Math and Reading.
If you are interested in the Early Learners Program please feel free to come to one of our one hour orientations to learn more about enrolling your Pre-schooler or Kindergartener in Kumon.
