Hi, can anyone share about Kumon Mathematics? Is it good for Preschool children or better for children in Primary School?

kumon math aiming to make children thinking faster by seeing only, so i can say, it must remember by heart.
its good for preschool as the worksheet will start from lowest level, and also will have tracing number worksheet.

Yup you can find similar exercises from bookstores. but kumon worksheet selling on bookstore is different from the center.
also they will keep repeating the worksheet till your child really able to move on to the next step.
if you buy from the bookstore how many book you will buy for the same topic? :D

btw i didnt take kumon math for my son, i did asked for assesment but finally decided not take math on kumon. my son hate kumon.... wkwkwkwkwk.

hi moms, some center not accept child below 3.5 years, you may check with the kumon center on your area.
as what i know, its depending on the child whether he/she already have a good motor skill to hold the pencil.
and most importantly, whether he/she already well toilet train (especially poo), don't expect teacher will bring them to toilet and cleaning for them.

i started my son on kumon english when his age 3years 8mnths.

Dear yqyq

My DS in K2 has problem with addition/subtraction too. How long did your child take to "resolve" and move on? My DS will be in P1 next year. Now he is with MPM doing K2 books.

Must lessons be twice weekly with 10 worksheets for homework? How many questions are there in 1 worksheet?
