Preparing Your Children for the Next School Year

Although it may seem like summer has just arrived, it won’t be long before your children are packing their backpacks and heading back to class. While your children enjoy the last few weeks of summer, start thinking about how you can help prepare them for the next school year.

According to research by John Hopkins University, summer vacation can cause students to lose up to two months of grade level equivalency in math and reading.  As a result, several weeks of your children’s new school year will be spent reviewing materials previously discussed during the last school year. If your children encountered any difficulties or challenges when first studying those concepts, they may experience similar issues when those concepts are reintroduced at the beginning of the school year. On the other hand, if your children are looking to advance their studies during this period, an academic enrichment program would be an ideal solution to cultivate their knowledge.

For a students who need additional time to review previous math and reading concepts, the Kumon Program can help them reach and surpass concepts studied in their current grade levels. For those looking to challenge themselves, the Kumon Program supports these students through a proven step-by-step learning process that encourages them to learn how to solve problems two to three years above their current grade levels.

All of this is possible because of the Kumon Program’s individualized instruction, which is tailored to each student’s needs, abilities, and goals. After enrolling and taking a placement test, the Kumon Instructor will be able to determine the best starting point for your children. Once established, they can gradually progress through the Kumon Program and work on achieving success in the next school year and beyond.
