Getting ready for school!

Zara

"I wanted something more structured that actually taught her something." - Ivanka, Zara's mum

Subject/s:
Maths and English
Age at Enrolment:
3 years and 9 months old

Zara is 4-years-old and already in the habit of having quiet learning time thanks to Kumon. Her mum, Ivanka, enrolled her daughter into Kumon to help Zara settle into school and at it has done just that, with Zara already confidently solving maths questions and reading independently.

“She’s amazed me with what she can do,” Ivanka said. “I didn’t know a child at her age could add and read and those sorts of things so Kumon has done more for her than I thought it would.”

Ivanka hopes Kumon will help prepare Zara for when she has to sit down and work when at school. “There’s a lot of programmes you can do before school but they’re all about fun and games which she does at kinder anyway so I wanted something more structured that actually taught her something,” Ivanka said.

Zara is learning both maths and English with Kumon and Ivanka is making sure to persist with the every day study routine. “Just like with any child, it’s all about routine and habits, if you keep doing something, they’ll want to keep doing it because it becomes part of their everyday,” she said.

Ivanka’s advice to other parents is simple: “Give it a go because it will definitely benefit your child and not only that, Zara is only four and a half and she already knows she has to do her Kumon every day and that’s a good habit to have. I look forward to putting my two younger sons in it as well!”
