Why enrolling your child in Kumon this summer could be a smart move
Summer has arrived and the school holidays along with it. It is a time for fun, relaxation, and discovery – but is it a time for Kumon?
The answer is yes. Below are four reasons why enrolling in Kumon may be a smart move this summer:
1. To consolidate children’s learning over the past year.
At Kumon, we believe the right practice makes perfect. A small amount of daily study can help your child fill in some learning gaps they may have encountered during the year. They may even develop some new skills, boosting their confidence as they enter a new school year in 2019!
2. To fill in free time.
Children should not study all day, every day, of their school holidays as this may lead to burnout and harm their study outcomes. Rather, a small amount of study – ideally 20 to 30 minutes a day – will help children keep their brains active. It’ll also help fill in a bit of the free time they have during the long summer break from school.
3. To keep children’s brains active.
The summer holidays are fairly long, about six to eight weeks depending on the school your child attends. This could be a good time to try an activity that will help keep their minds active, by studying some maths and/or English over the summer break.
4. If you were considering delaying Kumon until the new school year.
Enrolling your child during the summer break could actually be more beneficial than waiting until school resumes. At a time when children’s schedules are less hectic, enrolling in the holidays could help them settle into a habit of completing a small bit of homework each day and help establish a routine before the new school year begins.
Summer is a time for children to have fun, relax, and discover, but it could also be a time to consolidate their learning. Whatever your plans these holidays, either at home or away, Kumon worksheet study is a flexible option. No batteries, chargers or Wi-Fi needed, just a pencil and an eraser.
