About the Center

Introduction

Welcome to the Kumon Math and Reading Center of Virginia Beach-Hilltop. We are conveniently located in the PinBoy Shopping Center, next to PinBoy Bowling Alley next to Gilbert Eye Care, across from Hilltop East. 

For more than 60 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. Read more information about the Kumon Math Program.

The Kumon Reading Program begins with basic phonics and progresses all the way through advanced reading comprehension. Read more information about the Kumon Reading Program.

Kumon is a year-round program. Students absent more than one month during a calendar year must be re-registered and pay the registration fee to resume Kumon study.


Classroom Protocols:

  • The classroom area is for students only. We sincerely want parents’ input and observation, but we prefer these at appointed times.
  • Please do not come into the classroom to tell your child to hurry up! He or she is already working as fast as possible. If the child needs to leave at a certain time, please notify the front desk assistant and have the assistant get the child for you.
  • Do you want to ask a question? Please email, telephone, or leave a note with the assistant at the front desk, or have your child bring the note to the Instructor.
  • We respectfully ask that you do not leave your child(ren) unattended at the center (including waiting room) during class time. Parents can use the waiting room or wait in their car. Because of insurance policies, however, we cannot let children go outside to the car. Parents must come inside to pick up their child.
  • We ask that all students be quiet in the study room. Young minds are at work! Students should leave their silenced electronics in the waiting room or in their backpacks.
  • Children must be potty-trained and be able to go to the restroom on their own.

Monday and Thursdays 3:00 PM-7:00 PM
Tuesday and Fridays 1:00 PM-5:00 PM

Center follows public school decisions on whether to open/close for inclement weather.
