About this centre
The Kumon Balbriggan Study Centre offers maths and English programmes to children of all ages and all abilities. Kumon students develop more than just maths and English skills; they also become more confident and independent in all their learning.
Because Kumon is an individualised programme tailored to each child, they move through the programme at their own pace, moving on to a new topic when they have mastered the current subject and have built confidence in their own abilities.
For those students that are looking for more of a challenge, Kumon study means that they can progress beyond the curriculum and be ahead in class at school. Children can begin Kumon from as young as two years old with our Early Learner worksheets but can join at any age and at any time during the year. The youngest student currently attending the Balbriggan centre is six years old, while the oldest is 12 years old.
The centre was first established in 2016, with a new Instructor taking over in 2019. Each child attends an initial assessment to enable the Instructor to set work at a just right level for them. Students attend the centre once or twice a week to study under the observation of the Instructor. They’ll collect their daily worksheets to be completed at home. During classes, the Instructor will observe each student so that they can continue to move through the programme at a pace that is right for them.
When I first observed the dramatic improvement that students were able to achieve with Kumon study in a short space of time, I was so impressed I became inspired to train to become a Kumon Instructor.
The most rewarding element of my role is watching student’s confidence grow and how they become so comfortable and eager to take on new topics fearlessly.
Please do get in touch to see how we can help your child reach their full potential.

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 tutoring 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 but each student receives 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, making sure that work is set at the right level and that they are developing at the right pace.
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.
