About this centre

Welcome to the Kumon Drogheda North Study Centre.


Students are observed in class and their progress is carefully recorded so they continue progressing at a steady, just-right pace, studying an appropriate amount of work at home on a daily basis. We have students of all ages and abilities attending the centre, with current students ranging from infants through to junior certificate age.


The average time for students studying Kumon at the centre is 12 months or more due to the long-term nature of the programme. For children who are struggling, Kumon identifies and addresses the gaps in their learning and for children who have a good grounding in the subjects, it supports their further development.
The aim is to develop love for the subject that continues throughout their lives. Following an initial assessment, students begin their study at a comfortable starting point and gradually move through the programmes as they master each new topic, all the while developing in confidence and in their ability to self-learn.


The assessment is free. The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child, developing their ability and nurturing their independence.


Should you decide to enrol your children, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

My name is Helen McEntee and I am the Instructor at the Kumon Drogheda North Study Centre.

 

As a mother of three boys with different levels of academic skills and enthusiasms, I found Kumon five years ago after friends recommended it to me independently. I wanted my children to be able to compete in today’s international environment and started my children in the Kumon Maths and English Programmes. I found that the Kumon “can-do” approach has become part of our family life and benefited us in so many ways.


As a fully qualified Kumon Instructor, it’s so rewarding to see the students at my centre grow in confidence and ability as they progress through the Kumon levels under our guidance. Kumon not only works on the academic skills but also on the softer skills such as concentration, focus, stamina, independence, motivation, perseverance and other skills necessary for children to achieve their full potential in all areas of their lives.


Please contact me to arrange a free assessment of your child in maths and English.

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.

They don't. A Kumon student progresses based on their current ability and not their age, although we believe that every child has unlimited potential and can ultimately tackle advanced work through well-paced and individualised instruction. We have children of similar ages studying different material and children of different ages studying the same material. Everything is dependent on the student's needs, not on how old they are.

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.
