The Hayfields Kumon Study Centre is situated in a residential area in a business park that is located next to a popular upmarket shopping centre. There is ample parking space and an outside waiting area for parents. There is also the opportunity to go shopping whilst waiting for children to complete their math and English at the Kumon Centre. The centre offers a warm, safe environment and a reading corner full of exciting and interesting books from the Kumon Recommended Reading list.
The Hayfields Kumon Centre first opened in 2009. The centre has a range of children from the age of three to Grade 11.
Three full time enthusiastic assistants guide and support the children in the centre and are committed to fulfilling the vision of the Kumon Centre.
Hannah had been an assistant at the Hayfields Kumon Centre for 4 years, whilst studying her social work degree. When she took over as the Instructor, her conviction that each individual child is able to reach their full potential was already in place. Hannah firmly trusts in the Kumon method to make this happen. Given the conducive environment at the Kumon centre for learning to take place, she believes each child will be able to become not only a programme Completer in the math or English programme, but will also develop into a sound, capable individual who can contribute to their community.
As an Instructor, it as an absolute joy for her to see children mastering concepts and principles that they previously might have found difficult. She has also observed the problem solving skills that students develop. Hayfields has had many success stories of students gaining confidence in not only maths and English, but also growing in the maturity necessary to face everyday challenges. Students develop life skills that will assist them wherever their feet will tread. This is the image that we have for each individual child who enters our centre. We aspire to give them an opportunity for a better, brighter future full of possibilities and accomplishments.

Students can start learning with Kumon from age two upwards. We currently have students as young as two years old studying with us, ranging all the way up to those about to go to university; Kumon helps children of any age and any ability. The sooner children begin, the earlier they can start developing skills to gain the greatest cumulative benefit; as soon as you feel your family is ready to make the commitment to long-term study, Kumon will be ready to help you achieve your goal.
Kumon offers much more than extra lessons and differs from traditional teaching in the classroom. Rather than preparing children for a particular test or assessment, Kumon empowers students to learn for themselves, through individualised instruction and carefully developed worksheets.
As well as developing key skills in maths and English, each Kumon student will work towards building their independent learning skills and confidence in their own abilities. This means that a Kumon student will not be dependent on – or limited by – the skills and knowledge of others.
Kumon is a self-learning programme with each student receiving regular support from their Instructor. The carefully developed worksheets teach students how to find the answer for themselves, whilst their Instructor offers guidance when necessary. The key role of each Kumon Instructor is to observe their students working, either in the centre or their online class, making sure that work is set at the right level and that they are developing at the right pace.
Both, and every child in between. This is because of our individualised approach to education, which always asks the question: "What is best for this individual child?" Following a diagnostic test, a study plan is set to develop the ability of the child and to progress them beyond the Kumon International Standard (an international approximation of their school level) regardless of their starting point. Kumon welcomes students with special educational needs, gifted and talented children, and all those who believe they can achieve more and fulfil their potential.
As a global programme, Kumon does not follow a school curriculum, but rather is complementary to curricula across the world. The primary aim of the Kumon Method is to develop independent learning skills. These independent learning skills enhance the students’ performance right across the school curriculum. Kumon operates at exactly the right level for each student – regardless of their age – ensuring that work set extends and develops their skills, confidence and ability.
