How Kumon Enrichment Helps To Build Strong Foundational Abilities From A Young Age

Not only does Kumon develop a solid foundation in Math and English; we also help children build strong foundational abilities by cultivating important work and study skills necessary to succeed in today's world.

The objective of Kumon is to instil in students the right skills and mindset for self-learning. With Kumon's individualised learning method, children reap the benefits of learning by their ability, not by age. This helps them learn at an optimum level and advance topics beyond their school grades.

It is important to supplement your child’s learning with enrichment classes to meet the demands of the competitive school environment in Brunei. Continuous Kumon study helps children improve focus and concentration, cultivate confidence, develop time management skills and become self-motivated, independent problem solvers.

What Makes Kumon So Different
From Other Enrichment Programmes?

  • Self-Learning Method

    Kumon focuses on helping students develop the ability to study and problem solve independently without always asking for the answer. Children will build resilience and use this skill to learn independently at home so that they will not give up easily when solving challenging questions. Equip your child with the right skills for success with the Kumon enrichment programme.

  • Learn Progressively In Small Steps

    Our worksheets enable your child to learn Math & English progressively in small steps at the pace perfect for him/her before tackling advanced topics and concepts beyond his/her school grade.

  • Impart Key Life Skills

    In Kumon enrichment classes, we do not teach students in a uniform manner but guide them to understand the questions and solve problems independently. Through this, they will develop essential life skills such as determination, independence, confidence and a passion for learning to excel and overcome obstacles in school and beyond.

How Does Kumon Help Your Child to Learn and Study Independently At Home?

Like in-centre classes, the purpose of our remote learning classes is to observe students while they work and only give guidance and instruction when needed. The camera will mostly often focus on the students' worksheets, and our instructors will observe how students complete their assigned work before providing specific guidance.

The goal of the Kumon Method is to develop independent learners who can take charge of their study routines and problem-solve homework by themselves through daily practice, learning from their mistakes and developing the "never give up" mentality to do so.

Therefore, the values of independent learning, self-discipline, time management and self-confidence in solving problems that Kumon strives to instil are brought into focus and displayed while doing remote learning, both for school and Kumon.

At the heart of the Kumon Method is self-learning: we encourage students to read the constantly evolving small-step Math and English language worksheets, think, and do the exercises independently. We do not spoon-feed students problem-solving methods. Instead, we focus on guiding students to complete exercises on their own so that they enjoy a sense of achievement, are able to master new material independently and constantly push themselves to improve continually.

Foundational Skills

Our focus on numeracy and linguistics ensures students develop a solid foundation from ages as young as Preschool levels to achieve future academic excellence in both Primary and Secondary School. We identify, build and enhance the key skills that students need to become fluent readers and junior Mathematicians, giving them a core of confidence and a lifetime of good study habits that they can draw on as they advance in levels.

Develop A Passion For Learning

Beyond learning Math, learning English, and achieving academic success; a natural outcome of the Kumon Method is a solid base for the steep learning curves that come with life. By allowing them to make the choices that support their learning, strengths, and success, your child will develop the confidence to think, do and learn more. This way, he/she develops positive learning and a can-do attitude, turning learning into pleasure and joy.

Our Enrichment Programmes for Students

      Kumon students range from preschoolers to secondary school students. We currently have students as young as three years old studying with us and we help children of any age and ability reach their academic goals. However, we recommend that you enquire first to see if your ideal Centre can accept young children.

      With the Kumon Method, students start at the level where they can attain a perfect score studying on their own. This fosters a joy for learning, and instils good study habits.

      Gradually students begin to study topics they have not previously learned. Through Kumon, students will be able to advance beyond school grade level independently. This develops their analytical ability, develops perseverance and fosters confidence and a healthy self-esteem.

      Eventually, students study far beyond school grade level independently. They will excel in their other subjects as well because they have confidence and are applying the self-learning skills developed through Kumon.

      Yes. The Kumon Method is an individualised learning method that supplements the Brunei education system.

      For the Kumon Maths Programme, the study goal is the self-study of senior high school mathematics with ease. It focuses on the development of strong calculation skills and, by excluding all unrelated concepts which may be covered in school, aim to allow students to advance as quickly as possible on their own to senior high school mathematics.

      The study goal for the Kumon language programmes is to achieve advanced reading comprehension skills and the ability to read widely.

      Kumon is an independent self-study curriculum. By studying at a level that is appropriate to the child's ability, the child will be able to advance beyond his or her school grade level without being specifically taught.

      Self-learning means that students study worksheets and correct their own mistakes independently. The worksheets have been designed in a way to allow students to figure out how to solve problems on their own. Examples and explanations are clearly provided when moving on to new topics, encouraging students to self-learn and advance independently.

      Instructors observe how each student studies, plans and assigns worksheets and motivates the student. When students encounter difficulties, the Instructor assists the students by giving subtle hints so that they will be encouraged to progress and take on further challenges.

      Kumon will help your child improve his or her school grade through the academic knowledge and work skills gained through studying topics beyond school grade level.

      We're not the world's leading enrichment programme for academic success for nothing. We have successfully empowered more than 4 million students enrolled in over 24,700 Kumon Centres in 60 countries. Read what our students have to say here.

      Kumon's individualised instruction differs from one-on-one tutoring services that provide "quick fix" short-term boosts in performance. If your child is a bit behind his/her peers, our short-term goal is to reach grade-level competency within twelve months.

      Through Kumon, your child is able to develop reading comprehension ability, strong calculation ability and analytical ability which are the essential abilities in order to solve problem sums.

      Behind every successful student is a supportive parent and your child should be able to complete their daily homework independently as each worksheet builds on skills they will have developed at the previous level.

      In accordance to the Government's guidelines, our centres are providing the options of remote classes and/or a hybrid-learning approach of in-centre and remote classes to provide greater convenience, safety and assurance for all students who enrol in Kumon.

      All you need is an uncluttered table, a pencil, an eraser and a device equipped with a camera and microphone function to continue learning with Kumon at home.

      Why Kumon?

      Kumon is able to help students of all levels and of all abilities. The goal of the Kumon Method is to develop independent learners who can take charge of their study routines and problem-solve homework by themselves through daily practice, learning from their mistakes and developing the “never give up” mentality to do so.

      When first developing the Kumon Method, its founder, Toru Kumon theorized that as long as his son was able to do Maths easily in high school, he would have plenty of time to spend on whatever other pursuits he was interested in. So, he thought about what he could do at home to help his son gain proficiency in high school Maths.

      With the aim of helping his son gain independence, Toru Kumon prepared his own learning materials and study method. He wrote out calculation problems on loose-leaf worksheets and combined them with a self-study method that would enable his son to advance by himself.

      In effect Toru Kumon had laid the foundation for Kumon’s individualised approach that enables each student to learn in accordance with his or her academic ability, and for Kumon’s pursuit of potential; both of which we continue to place the utmost importance on.

      Therefore, the values of independent learning, self-discipline, time management and self-confidence in solving problems that Kumon strives to instil are developed through the Kumon Method.

      We at Kumon believe in the vast potential of our students and want to further develop each student’s ability. At the same time, we constantly strive for something better by continuing to develop our worksheets and instruction method. And today, this learning method continues to go beyond the borders of countries, culture and traditions, to reach more and more countries and regions throughout the world.

      High Quality of Enrichment Programme, Instructors and Staff

      Kumon is the world’s largest after-school enrichment and tuition programme. Kumon Instructors undergo extensive training prior to operating a centre and still receive training and development throughout the years of operation.

      Kumon Instructors are dedicated individuals who have a passion for nurturing children. Many of them are or were Kumon parents themselves who saw that the Kumon Method works/worked for their children and decided to impart it to other children.

      The role of a Kumon Instructor is to bring out the potential in each individual. Kumon Instructors discover what each student is capable of and focus on each student individually, paying careful attention to their academic ability, personality and how they take on the worksheets. Instructors then provide effective support to ensure learning at a level that is “just-right” for each individual.

      In a supportive and stimulating environment, Kumon Instructors acknowledge the growth of each student without comparison to others, while offering praise and encouragement. At the same time, they cooperate closely with parents in monitoring the growth of each student. It is through these dedicated Instructors, who sincerely wish for the growth of their students, that the true benefits of the Kumon Method are achieved.
