About this centre

In-centre Classes & Messaging support
The Tokai Centre opened in April 1997 and operates from a family home in a quiet residential suburb, creating a calm and safe learning environment for students.

It offers both English and Mathematics, accommodating older students in a larger classroom, little ones in a smaller classroom, and has a separate reading area.

Our students range in age from three years old to adults, as the flexible nature of the Kumon programme allows it to be individualised for all ages and abilities.  It is the aim of Kumon to develop the potential of every student through building confidence and developing study skills by means of the structure of the English and Maths programmes.

The Instructor, Ingrid, and a dedicated team of seven well-trained, caring assistants work together to provide an environment of study that encourages within each individual student a desire to learn, an enjoyment of learning, and the development of those skills which are necessary for success in higher levels of English and Maths. Our Kumon centre operates within an open-plan layout, which allows Ingrid and her staff team to observe and monitor all activities.

We are open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. We offer the flexibility of attending the centre twice a week on any of these days, as well as providing ample free parking, with a parking guard in attendance. We also have a leafy garden with a number of chairs and benches where parents or children can wait.
My name is Ingrid Moore and I am the Instructor at the Tokai Centre.  I am a qualified Primary School and Art teacher and have been teaching since the 1970’s. I have almost forty-five years diverse teaching experience in schools with learners’ of mixed abilities; and have been a Kumon Instructor for seventeen of those years.

I believe in the Kumon method and way of learning and, when I first opened my centre, I saw immediate results. Students thrive as Kumon allows them to reach their potential, at their own pace; something which extra lessons do not offer, as many students do not grasp the basic foundations.

Kumon allows each student to start at a level that is ‘just right’ and progress through the programmes at their own pace, thereby ensuring steady progress and great results. Kumon allows me to be a mentor rather than a teacher, and in so doing, I build strong relationships with all my students.

Most students have joined through word-of-mouth recommendations, and my business has grown steadily as students and parents have realised the benefits of studying with Kumon.

Although my own children have achieved well, they might never have needed extra  lessons in high school if they had done Kumon! This I only realised once I was involved with Kumon.

As a Kumon Instructor, I am continuously growing and learning and there is nothing more rewarding than students who are able to realise their own potential, and watching the great joy it brings them!

Most Popular Questions

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.
