Welcome to our Kumon-Center. It was opened in 2017 to serve the Basel community and offers both Math and English programs, ranging from Pre-school to High school Matura.
We strongly believe that every child has the potential to learn far beyond our expectations, therefore our primary job is to teach our students to “learn how to learn” until they reach self-awareness of their own capabilities. By monitoring individual progress and ensuring comprehension, your child becomes motivated and self-reliant, developing critical thinking and problem-solving abilities, enabling them to obtain higher education and success at their future workplace.
The venue is located in Spalenring at the crossroad with Allschwilerstrasse (near Schützenmatt park) and it is easily accessible by public transport (tramline 1 and 6 and bus 50). Some parking meter spots are available in Socinstrasse and Spalering.
The Center has three spacious and light rooms (one reserved for practicing English) offering a friendly yet studious atmosphere, stimulating concentration and encouraging learning.
A few motivational items are used, such as certificates, medals and special awards. Feedback is provided to students each week with praise, encouragement and guidance and feedback is also communicated to parents by email or briefly at meetings.
The official language of the Center is English, as we believe it helps greatly the students, even when not enrolled to the English program, to get familiar with a language that they will use regularly in their life.
