About the Center

Introduction

Welcome to our Kumon Math and Reading Center of Long Island City. For more than 50 years, the Kumon after-school academic enrichment program has been helping children achieve success worldwide. Our Kumon Center strives for the same success, motivating all of our students to perform at their highest potential.

Pre-school students will be asked to commit to a specific time.

 

Class Attendance

 

Class attendance is a vital part of the Kumon program. Observing students at work in class greatly assists in the planning process for that student. We also prefer to introduce new concepts in class so we may assist your child in reaching his/her Kumon goals. If a student is unable to attend class, please call the Center by 12:00 p.m. on the day of the class. This will allow us the time to make adjustments to the student’s plan and prepare the work to be picked up.

 

Center Calendar

 

Although Kumon is a year-round program of study, we do observe some national holidays as well as a break at the end of December. Specific dates of Center closings will be posted in the parent waiting area.

Payment

 

§  For your convenience, we offer monthly electronic funds transfer (EFT) payment and credit card options.

§  The 1st month tuition payment, registration and material fees are due at the time of enrollment.

§  If you intend on discontinuing Kumon study, 30 days written notice is required. (Please refer to the Absence Policy for more details.)

 

 

Absence Policy

 

A student who, for whatever reason, does not take any Kumon materials in a given month, but who plans to resume Kumon study within one month, is considered "absent."   An "absent" student is considered "discontinued" being absent for more than one month in a given calendar year.  If a "discontinued" student resumes Kumon study, the registration fee will be assessed at time of re-enrollment.  Also, such students will forfeit any accumulated Cosmic Club points and start with a zero balance should they re-enroll.   The student must take another placement test in order to determine the “Just-Right” Level.

 

*Multi-subject students would have to be absent for more than one month in all subjects concurrently for this policy to apply. Students remaining enrolled in at least one subject will not be affected by this policy.

 

Vacations

 

Kumon homework is assigned 365 days per year unless requested in advance in writing at least one week prior to the date of the adjustment.  Parents should complete an “Absence Notification Form” at least one week prior to the absence.  Please indicate the class days to be missed and any adjustments required for the students’ work.  We encourage that students do not take break from their regular Kumon routine on long trips.  Forms are available in the parent waiting area, and should be placed in the “Communication Box”. 

 

Workload

 

The Instructor determines the amount of worksheets assigned to each student.  It is important that the student be given the appropriate level and amount of work.  To accomplish this, students are observed carefully while working at the Center.  Parental feedback regarding student’s work is always welcome.  Please contact the Center the day before class to discuss any adjustments or concerns regarding your child’s Kumon study plan.  This will ensure that any necessary adjustments can be made prior to the next class. Please keep in mind, however, that an adjustment to a student’s workload is at the discretion of the Instructor.

 

 

Worksheets

 

Students should return completed homework sheets on scheduled class days.  On class days, the student completes the planned class work and, after grading (and making corrections if needed), the worksheets are left at the Center to be reviewed by the Instructor and then recorded in our database.  Worksheets are returned to the student after they are reviewed by the Instructor.

 

RRL Books / Supplementary Learning Materials Return Policy

 

Students are allowed to take a book or Supplementary Learning Material to home. These items will need to be returned within one week. New books or materials will not be given out unless the previous ones are returned. If books and/or Supplementary Learning Materials are not returned within one month after they were borrowed, a $10 ($20 for Supplementary Learning Materials) replacement fee will be assessed for each unreturned item.

 

Communication with Parents

 

Kumon information will be sent to the parents in the child’s homework pouch regularly.  In addition, there will be a quarterly newsletter to keep you informed of Center activities.  Parent conferences will be held throughout the year. You may request a meeting at any time to discuss your child’s Kumon progress.  Please note, however, that meetings will not be scheduled during class time.
