Consider what skills and attributes your child will need to be successful later in life, not just in school and homework but in all aspects of life. Confidence, independence, concentration and self-motivation are all attributes of an independent learner and this is something that children can develop from a young age.
Directed teaching for a specific topic may help children pass an exam or get a high mark for a homework task but it doesn’t prepare them to answer questions on different topics or help them to overcome challenges beyond school work. Independent learning skills help a child to experience a situation or challenge they have never experienced before and enable them to utilise their independent skills to confidently solve the problem.
As children start to take ownership of their learning and experience success they also develop invaluable confidence and self-motivation. This can increase their enjoyment across a wide range of subjects at school whilst also preparing them for personal and professional success later in life. At your local Woodbridge Kumon Centre all children are nurtured to become confident, independent learners.
Woodbridge Kumon Centre will be holding an information session at the Hub at lunchtime on Wednesday 12 September, so please drop by to find out more.
