Summer and Beyond

The heat is settling in. The final examinations schedules have been announced. Vacation plans are being finalized. Talk of sports, art, and dance classes are starting to circulate. This can only mean one thing:

Summer’s here!

It’s that time of year when children gladly say: “School’s out for summer!” It’s also the time of the year for endless conversations about the exciting places to visit and the fun activities to do in the next two months. However, having fun does not necessarily mean that learning has to stop. There is a way for children to still enjoy the perks of summer while being productive.

There is Kumon.

Kumon is a learning program where students begin at an easy starting point – a point lower than their current school grade level. This allows them to:

  • develop focus
  • build confidence
  • establish rhythm

(even with a mix of extra-curricular and other summer activities) since they are tackling topics they know they can solve and are familiar with.

Each of the levels in the Kumon Programs cover topics essential to meet their respective goals – self-study of high school math with ease for the Math Program and development of reading comprehension ability and the ability to read widely for the Reading Program.

As they start to tackle advanced topics when they progress from one level to the next, students gain the following aspects:

It is good to note that students will only be able to get the full benefits of Kumon if they stay on – specifically beyond summer. The benefits of the Kumon Method are not seen in just a month or two. Strong academic skills, self-learning ability, and good character take time and effort to develop.

Yes, summer is the best time to start; but it does not end there. Kumon can and should be continued – for the long term.

So give Kumon a chance – start this summer, and end beyond it to reap the benefits in the long run!

      1. whats the duration of the classes and may i know the time and is it everyday?

      2. Hi Ms. Kristine,

        Kumon students go to the Kumon Centers 2 times in a week and do homework 5 times a week. Thus, Kumon is done everyday (both in the Center and at home).

        A student’s Kumon class time would depend on the schedule of the Center you wish to enroll in. You can contact the Center to know more of their schedule.

        Thank you!
