THE Kumon Carramar Education Centre is relocating and rebranding.

After operating as a mobile centre at the Carramar Community Centre for more than 10 years, the centre is moving to permanent premises at Banksia Grove Village Shopping Centre.

To reflect the change, it is also changing its name to Kumon Banskia Grove Education Centre.

“We felt the time was right to make this commitment and move to an area with growing, diverse and young families keen on academia,” owner Rekha Sekhon said.

“The move to a new permanent centre will give greater flexibility to families on timing and accessibility.

“I am passionate about pursing the potential of our youth and nurturing them to improve their numeracy and literacy skills whilst building their confidence and life skills.”

To celebrate the move, the Banksia Grove centre will hold an open day from 2.30pm to 4pm this Saturday.

Ms Sekhon said attendees would include Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts, Kumon head office staff, instructors and colleagues and past, present and future families.

Kumon is an individualised learning method with the starting point for each student determined at a level where they can attain a perfect score by studying on their own.

Worksheets are designed so if students continue at their own pace, they will catch up with their school grade level and eventually advance beyond it.

Ms Sekhon said the aim was for students to “become braver and more courageous and to give things a go without being taught”.
