I have been toying with the idea of enrolling the little man to Kumon, I am thinking it would be a great enhancement to the lessons we will have at home when I decide to homeschool him. Some mommy blogger friends were talking about it online a few weeks back and since I’ve been meaning to check it out anyway, I decided to pay the local branch a visit. It was located at the Blas F. Ople Diversions Road in Bulihan. And I am glad that Jared’s dad was around to drive us there since this area is really out-of-the-way.
Our visit was so timely as a parent orientation was slated in a week. This orientation is a pre-requisite to enrollment and this is when potential students are assessed, too.
Kumon in a nutshell
It is an afterschool supplemental learning program. Its structured Math or Reading programs are comprehensive and individualized to match each child’s learning pace. It has been around for 50 years and has been accepted by 47 countries around the world.
Students go to the center twice in a week and are given homework daily for non-center days.
Monthly tuition is Php1,800 for children grade six and below. There is also a one-time Registration Fee of Php500.
How to enroll
All you have to do is find a Kumon Center, attend the Parent Orientation and have your child take the Diagnostic Test. When your child pass, the parents and the Kumon instructors will then discuss the study projection especially made for your child.
The Malolos City Study Center is a small facility that can accommodate only a number of students at a time. I find this most ideal as the little man can really do away with the stress related to seeing one too many unfamiliar faces and objects at the same time.
I am scheduled to attend their next orientation, I will let you know how it goes.
