Introduction

Welcome to the Kumon Math and Reading Center of Norwell!

We are located 25 miles south of Boston in the heart of the South Shore. Our center helps students from many local towns improve their math and reading skills, along with skills that prepare them to be more productive in the 21st Century.

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.

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.

Policies

Center Policies and Procedures during the Coronavirus Pandemic

  1. We are currently supporting students through virtual Zoom sessions. There is no face-to-face attendance taking place as of August 2020. Students are studying at home independently under parental guidance, just like they normally would before the pandemic. We meet with students (and parents with younger learners) for a 30 minute Zoom session weekly to confirm the learning process, acquired skills, discuss any feedback and work ahead.


  2. When the center opens for students, all arriving students must wear masks and obey by social distancing rules of 6 feet distance. The small size of the center dictates up to 8 people at one time. Students will need to schedule their center visits in advance.


  3. Kumon parents understand that Kumon requires a daily commitment on their part. When parents are serious about educating their children and developing life-long study skills, children will also engage and learn to respect learning, to organize their time, and to take responsibility for what is important in their lives. Parents must ensure that their children have the time to do their Kumon work by wisely managing the activities the child is involved in after school. Kumon needs to fit comfortably into your child’s routine every day. It cannot be rushed and cannot be the last thing your child does during the day.


  4. We provide instructions and support on how the work needs to be completed by students, how to "home grade" work, and how to understand what success should look like in each level and how to get there.


  5. Home Grading: Parents are involved daily in their child’s Kumon studies by setting specific times for work completion and by marking the Kumon homework, preferably as soon as the assigned worksheets are completed. Parents should mark and score the work with a red pen and using the answer book provided by us. At the top of the first page, please summarize the time taken for each set and the number of errors made in the entire packet.


  6. It is important for the parents to help us reinforce the messages we are fostering with your children every time they are in the center or in zoom, including:


    • the quality of work is important, neatness is a skill to learn;

    • striving to achieve 100% accuracy is essential for building a strong foundation;

    • recording times correctly is an important part of the learning process and gives us needed feedback;

    • working continuously and diligently from the beginning to the end of each set builds strong concentration skills, attention to detail, and patience;

    • completing Kumon work every day teaches students responsibility for a small task;

    • keeping work organized (in page order) and returned back to the center teaches students responsibility for their work;

    • studying examples and learning from mistakes develops self-reliance and self-learning skills.


  7. We cannot stress enough the importance of parents' involvement in Kumon. We are here to help, but we have to work together as partners to assure the fastest progress with ease and minimum stress on you and your child. Please stay in touch throughout your child's journey on how to work with your child at home, what learning milestones we are working to accomplish and to discuss anything that relates to your child’s Kumon work and progress.


  8. Holiday Closings: Kumon is a year-round program of study. Kumon homework is assigned 365 days per year unless otherwise requested by a parent at least one week in advance. Parents may request to have us schedule less work during vacations. We generally close the Centers for the following weekends: Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, MLK Day, Easter, Memorial Day, and Fourth of July. Additionally, we close for Christmas Break, Winter Vacation (February), and Spring Vacation (April).

  9. Your feedback is important to us. Our goal is to provide the best Kumon experience to you and your children. Please let us know how we are doing and if there is anything else we can improve in our services to you. Call us or email us any time.
