“What do you want to be when you grow up?”
As a child, you must have been asked this question several times. And your answer to this question surely changed as you grew up. But, one thing is certain — you have always wanted to be the best, to be excellent.
It is said and believed that excellent students are born with extraordinary intelligence and talent. Yes, this may be true. But, anyone can become excellent – even an ordinary and average student who puts in hard work. Attaining a higher level of ability and intelligence is not only attained by having it ever since birth. Rather, it can also be attained through daily study, specifically through the mastery of topics that eventually help your children have smooth progress as they tackle different and challenging topics in school. It can be attained in the Kumon Method of Learning.
How, then, does Kumon develop your child to become excellent?
Kumon is a learning method that encourages students to study worksheets daily with no holidays. This practice of everyday study develops the discipline to know when study time is and when playtime is. Also, the worksheets are designed in minute steps that allow students to master one topic before moving on to the next, and students make use of the examples to learn new topics. Thus, there is the development of self-learning ability or the ability to solve problems, correct mistakes, and learn new topics independently.
Kumon aims for students to study above their grade level or study topics that they have not yet tackled in school. By being advanced, students have more time to study other subjects because they have already mastered what is currently being tackled in school. Students also develop the zest to learn more, which leads them to become interested in exploring new topics or activities. A higher level of self-esteem and confidence is developed when students’ efforts are recognized. This, then, gives them a positive mindset when facing challenges in school and life.
Kumon makes sure to keep in mind the parents’ goals when entering their children into the program. It is believed that having a great amount of support from the parents plays a huge factor in helping children achieve their dreams. And because Kumon study is mostly done at home, the Kumon Instructors work closely with the parents by making sure that regular updates and information are given regarding their children’s progress. Because, after all, there is nothing more rewarding than knowing that your children have a bright and secured future.
Every student in Kumon is believed to have the potential to do more, dream more, and be more. So believe in your children’s potential, and start ther Kumon journey to success!
