About the Center

Introduction

Welcome to our Kumon Math and Reading Center of Creve Coeur. For more than 50 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.

The Program:
Kumon is a linear program meant to help students with mathematical skills needed for higher level mathematics such as calculus and the comprehension skills needed to read and work with higher level reading concepts.

Kumon is a long term program and should be taken seriously. Students are encouraged to finish the entire program (Level O for math and Level L for reading). If enrolling in 6th, 7th and 8th grades or enrolling above Level E, minimum of 6 months commitment is required.

Kumon follows its own curriculum. The curriculum matches school at times. Students must keep track of time on worksheets; mastery of material is determined by time and accuracy. Students must do homework every day.

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.
 
Students learn more than just Kumon curriculum. Teaching good study habits is like “teaching to catch a fish”.   Along with academics, students learn discipline, focus, determination and diligence which are great life skills to acquire. Not quitting when going gets tough is a valuable lesson in itself.

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.



Price and Fees

Placement Test
$0 (FREE)

Monthly Tuition
$130 per subject / $250 for both Math and Reading

Monthly Kumon tuition is paid by setting up a monthly automatic debit by providing your authorization and a voided check.  For families that pay monthly we require a Last Month Deposit. Prepayment Discounts are also available for 6 month or 1 year commitments when tuition is prepaid in full. Families that choose to prepay for 6 or 12 months are not required to leave a last month deposit. Please inquire if you are interested in knowing more about our pre-payment discounts. All payments are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Tuition is prorated only for the first month. In other words if your child starts Kumon after the 15th of that month, you will be charged half of that month's tuition, but only for that month. Tuition is non-refundable once a student has begun receiving work assignments for the month.

Upon registration, we accept your registration fee, material fee, and 1st month tuition. We process tuition on the 1st of the month. For example, tuition for January is charged on January 1st. If you wish to discontinue Kumon you must let us know in writing by the 15th of the current month to stop payment for the following month.

Registration Fee
$50 per student

A one-time, non-refundable registration fee of $50 will be applicable to new students and will be charged at enrollment. This registration fee is good for the lifetime* of the program at the center so long as the child continues active participation. 

Students transferring from another Kumon Center will not be assessed a registration fee so long as there is no lapse in their enrollment.

*Students absent from the Kumon Program for more than 1 month will be subject to a new registration fee.

Materials Fee
$20 per student

A one-time non-refundable materials fee of $20 will be applicable to new students. This fee will be charged at enrollment.
