About this centre

In-centre & Online Classes
Meru Kumon Center is housed on the First (1st) Floor of the Multipurpose Hall, on the grounds of ACK St. Peter’s Cathedral - Kinoru in Makutano, Meru. This is a secure, spacious and welcoming environment, with ample parking and a lounge where parents can wait for their children. Students of all ages, from as young as 2 years old, and all abilities, can enroll and develop their potential to the maximum possible.

The Center is a place of positive impact to students, their parents/guardians and the community. It provides a nurturing, inclusive and supportive atmosphere conducive for discovery and learning. Children learn to be  curious, confident, and independent learners who find infinite opportunities for self-learning and development. Students are supported, affirmed and challenged to be the best versions of themselves.
Meru Kumon Center values individualized instruction tailored to the uniqueness of each child. Following a free assessment, your child will begin on the Maths and/ or English program(s) at an individually set starting point. This will lay a solid foundation for effective learning aimed at maximizing the child’s potential. Your child’s progress will be tailored to individual ability. Through daily study of the uniquely developed Kumon Worksheets, your child will develop invaluable study skills, attitudes and important life skills. During school holidays, daily Kumon work will continue to reinforce learning so that gains made during the school term are not lost during the break.
The Center has an extensive library from which your child can borrow books to read both in and out of the premises. A life-long reading culture is highly valued at Meru Kumon Center
I am Dr. Hilda Omae-Kiogora, a teacher and trained Kumon Instructor. I first became aware of Kumon from my then six year old nephew about six years ago. I was impressed by his ability to tackle math problems that were beyond his grade level. He was able to organize his time and study independently with minimal prompting and without supervision. At that point, I knew there was something unique and wonderful about the Kumon method that could benefit many children.
Discovering how Kumon develops a love for learning in students, particularly responsible, independent, self-learners, convinced me to become a Kumon Instructor. As a teacher, I’ve taught children of all ages and levels – from Kindergarten to University. Being able to help a child develop a love for learning, both in and out of school, has been one of my passionate endeavors and greatest reward. I’m convinced that through Kumon, this is achievable.

Kumon allows for truly individualized study for each student; and this is one of its most admirable strengths. It gives a child time to cover a topic effectively, at one’s own pace, and master the concepts and skills before moving on to the next level. It allows students an opportunity to venture into new academic areas on their own, complete work they didn’t think they were capable of, and as a result build confidence in their abilities as learners. As an Instructor, I’m able to learn from my students and support each of them in the unique ways that each may need.

The Kumon Programmes require the commitment of the Instructor, Parent and Student. When the three work in tandem, each playing their role effectively, a good education for the learner is assured. This would result in an individual that is capable making good choices, be it in relation to one’s education or life in general.

Most Popular Questions

Students can start learning with Kumon from age two upwards. We currently have students as young as two years old studying with us, ranging all the way up to those about to go to university; Kumon helps children of any age and any ability. The sooner children begin, the earlier they can start developing skills to gain the greatest cumulative benefit; as soon as you feel your family is ready to make the commitment to long-term study, Kumon will be ready to help you achieve your goal.
Kumon offers much more than extra lessons and differs from traditional teaching in the classroom. Rather than preparing children for a particular test or assessment, Kumon empowers students to learn for themselves, through individualised instruction and carefully developed worksheets.

As well as developing key skills in maths and English, each Kumon student will work towards building their independent learning skills and confidence in their own abilities. This means that a Kumon student will not be dependent on – or limited by – the skills and knowledge of others.
Kumon is a self-learning programme but each student receiving regular support from their Instructor. The carefully developed worksheets teach students how to find the answer for themselves, whilst their Instructor offers guidance when necessary. The key role of each Kumon Instructor is to observe their students working, either in the centre or their online class, making sure that work is set at the right level and that they are developing at the right pace.
Both, and every child in between. This is because of our individualised approach to education, which always asks the question: "What is best for this individual child?" Following a diagnostic test, a study plan is set to develop the ability of the child and to progress them beyond the Kumon International Standard (an international approximation of their school level) regardless of their starting point. Kumon welcomes students with special educational needs, gifted and talented children, and all those who believe they can achieve more and fulfil their potential.
As a global programme, Kumon does not follow a school curriculum, but rather is complementary to curricula across the world. The primary aim of the Kumon Method is to develop independent learning skills. These independent learning skills enhance the students’ performance right across the school curriculum. Kumon operates at exactly the right level for each student – regardless of their age – ensuring that work set extends and develops their skills, confidence and ability.
