About the Center

Introduction

Welcome to the Kumon Math and Reading Center of Beacon. For more than 60 years, Kumon’s after-school academic enrichment program has helped children achieve success worldwide. We strive to instill in children the desire to achieve and the motivation to learn on their own. Whether your child is seeking enrichment, needs help catching up or is just beginning his or her academic career, Kumon is designed to help him or her develop a love of learning.

Students advance through the program at their own pace. Our emphasis on individualized learning helps your child become focused, motivated and self-reliant. We monitor each child’s progress to ensure comprehension before moving on to a new concept. With a strong academic foundation, critical thinking and problem solving abilities, your child has the potential to achieve whatever he or she desires.

The Kumon Math Program is a comprehensive curriculum that develops the necessary skills to help children progress from counting through calculus. For more information about the Kumon Math Program, click here.

The Kumon Reading Program begins with basic phonics and progresses all the way through advanced reading comprehension. For more information about the Kumon Reading Program, click here.

Absence Policy:
The Kumon Method is a long-term program and program completion is the ultimate goal. While we have agreed on a set schedule for your child, we understand that there may be instances where you will have to switch days / time slots. Please let us know at least one week in advance and we will do our best to accommodate your request. However, please also understand that due to staffing (especially if your child is working with an Assistant), we may be unable to accommodate your request. In such cases where you will be skipping a class day, we will gladly provide worksheets for the sessions your child will be missing.

Should you choose to take a break of a month or more, Kumon North America mandates that your child be re-enrolled as a new student. Your child will be required to take another placement test and the registration and materials fees will be charged again upon re-enrollment.

If a student chooses to drop out of a class, either temporarily or indefinitely, a written notice is required at least 30 days before the termination date. Failure to receive such notice will result in continued charges to your account.
