â€“ Amusement parks and ice cream trucks are just a few things kids look forward to once summer begins. Parents however, often worry about the learning loss that may occur. At Kumon, the worldâ€™s largest math and reading program, students develop the skills needed to gain an academic advantage once school begins. Families that enroll now through July 8 at participating Kumon Centers nationwide will receive free registration for each child enrolled.
â€œThese results translated into a self-esteem boost that I didnâ€™t anticipate,â€ Ms. Goldman said.
Teachers are recommending students who can benefit from Kumonâ€™s instruction and, with parent involvement, are making the enrichment center an official partner in the learning process.
â€œThe idea is not for Kumon students to be â€˜tutoredâ€™ per se but to â€˜self-propelâ€™ through the material,â€ says center director Naomi Sazukiâ€¦
Even if your child prefers roving work stations to a dedicated desk, identify appropriate study spots and make sure she has all necessary supplies. â€œTry to pick the quietest areas in your home that will have as few distractions as possible,â€ advises Rima Muth from the national math and reading enrichment program Kumon.
