Last weekend I was invited with the press launch of Kumon Philippines Education and Parenting Seminar 2012 held at Chateau 1771, Greenbelt 5. As a mom, I was so excited to learn more about Kumon in the Philippines. Ms. Jasmine Mendiola (blogger and mom to Mio of http://www.miofightscancer.com/) hosted the event. During the press launch, several questions were raised and answered by Kumon Philippines: Ina Duller (Public Relations Division Leader), Henry Tenedero (Education Reform Advocate), Tadashi Nakatsuka (President Kumon Philippines), Susie Tsoi (Kumon Instructor), and Allan Aguirre (Communications and Human Capital Group Leader).
- Multiple Intelligence
- Starting at an appropriate level fosters a love of learning
- Students start with the level where they can attain a perfect score by studying on their own
- Progress at your own pace
- Develop good study habits and self-learning ability
- Advance beyond school grade level
Good Pointers about education that Mr. Henry Tenedero (Education Reform Advocate) shared
- Empower your kids to be genius by believing yourself.
- Learning does not depends on school.
- In equipping the child, parents need help too.
- Parents are important in the learning process.
- Students should learn beyond the curriculum.
- Know the factor of your child’s potential.
What is the recommended age for a child to start Kumon? (My question)
There is no age limit in Kumon. Understand the child, learn the study habits and perseverance. If your child has not yet started regular schooling, you may bring him to the Kumon center and the Kumon instructor will assess his readiness level.
