My now 6 yr.old daughter started in KUmon when she was 4.  One year for reading then after that we shifted in Math.  She is a consistent honor student and now to graduate in preschool as class valedictorian.  We stopped Kumon last Feb.  I would say it was a good program, but then  she gets bored with the repetition and doing the worksheets even during weekends and holidays.  So I let her rest.  Every ASHR (Advanced student honor roll) awarding she gets an award, but when she said  " I don't like it anymore mommy and started crying while doing the worksheets, I decided to stop and respect her. decision.  I do not want to force her to do something she doesn't like doing anymore. 
  My husband talked to me and even told me that Kumon is from Japan, their culture is very different from us, kaya nga sila maaga nagse second childhood.  Then realized other mommies kwento, too, how their child cry and wanted to stop.  Kasi walang rest.  To help in their schooling , i would say it is indeed a very good help.  Na aadvance ang mga bata, but let us see and check first our children if their learning ability will adopt to repetition style.  At first my daughter enjoyed it kaya tuloy lang kami.  Pero kung stressed na ang bata wag natin pilitin.  There are instances kasi before during Christmas and summer vacation when all her cousins are playing then I would remind her to do her Kumon kasi nga matatambak ang worksheets kung isang araw eh papalya kang gumawa.  Kaya siguro naiinis din, plus the pressure in school. 

Last week, she had a diagnostic test in enopi.  She said she wants there kasi iba ang worksheets , very colorful and there is a part where they'll do critical thinking so inisip ko baka hindi agad magasawa sa ginagawa.  and she was the one who decided that she'll go there. without us asking.  She will start next week for the free trial, so we'll see. KUng magustuhan niya then good , if not I won't push her.  Kay lang nga papunta na siyang division sa Kumon when we stopped, now balik kami sa addition sa e.nopi.  Kasi medyo nahirapan siya sa critical thinking which is not being offered in KUmon.

For those who are askign , Kumon and Enopi is not a tutorial class.  It is an enhancement class.  An After-school activity.  My daughter is in Kinder 2 and doing worksheets na for Gr. 3 when we stopped in KUmon so hindi siya base sa grade level ng bata sa school.  Again, kung kaya ng bata GO, you will definitely benefit from it, but then tignan muna natin kung gusto ng anak natin kasi sayang lang ang effort, time, resources kung magiging source lang to ng stress sa kanya. 

Let our children enjoy their childhood. 
Good words are worth much and cost little.  There is no greater investment we can make in the lives of our children than giving them generous doses of encouraging words.  It costs us so little in time and effort, but the rewards are priceless.

I enrolled my kids at kumon na. They started last week lang. Sa ngayon, excited pa sila. True, my older son got conscious of his time when doing math. Mas mabilis sya mag add ngayon and he's the one who asked more take home worksheets from his teacher. Ok na rin since summer naman, he has a lot of spare time. If my kids don't tire of it, i'll give it a year to see their progress.

sis girl_interrupted - my kids have been in e-nopi for a year na din - and meron naman improvement.  Though, at times, like your husband, I get to thinking if necessary nga ba talaga?  Coz really, if you add the monthly costs, plus gasoline pa (if you have to drive them there)... it's not cheap.  Come to think of it - when we were kids, we didn't have these things - and what they taught us in school was sufficient.   And at times pa, when you look at their worksheets, you'd think - kaya kong gumawa nito e..

Oh well, but of course, there's this feeling that if these additional learning centers (enopi or kumon) can help improve them, then why not?

Hello po,  ;D

You might want to try out numberworksnwords. may Math and English din po. They offer flexible packages po para affordable. It's nice, kasi computer-based yung lessons, kaya bagay sa kids ngayon, tapos may reward yung kids everytime a topic is finished, kaya di sila ma bore ng madali. P450 per session. 5 branches na so far sa metro manila.

hi! im newbie here! [textspeak!] dalawang daughter ko pareho silang nasa kumon mag 3months na..both are in math..

si ate sophia 11 having hard time sa math kaya kahit si cheska lang sana ang enroll ko that time sige pikit mata ko nalang na enroll na rin sya.. so far ok naman po ngayon ang bilis na nya sa addition, nasa minus na sya ngayon... kaya din ako nag decide talagang ipasok na sya sa kumon kasi sa june13 pasukan na 1st year na sya at algebra na ang gagawin pero mabagal talaga sya sa math.. nakikita ko naman na seryoso sya sa mga worksheet nya kahit nagkasakit na nga last time gusto pa rin nya pumasok..so kahit mahal ok na rin nakikita kong pursigido sya.. :)

cheska naman is 3.5yrs old nakaka count pero di nya kilala ang numbers pan pinahanap mo. at first pahirapan sa pagsagot ng worksheet at pero gustong laging pumasok.. we start 7a talaga.. now recognize na nya hangang #1 to 30 at ngayon counting dots na kami perfect na nya ang counting tignan lang alam na nya ang sagot.. nakakatuwa! ;) she can finish worksheet in 5mins o diba ! at napapansin ko sya na ang magsasabi na kumon na sya gawa na daw sya WS nya at one time tawag ako sa hause coz im a working mom sabi ni ate sophia, ma tapos na ni cheska ang WS nya in one day tinapos nya ang 6pcs na worksheet hala wala na gagawin ang siste nagbubura ako ulit kasi ayaw na nya count pag may sagot na kasi daw tapos na nya kaya sige ako sa bura.. pero ok lang kasi nakakatuwa na at her age alam na nya ang mga ganun na kung ako lang di ko siguro matuturuan kasi nga nag-work ako..

in fairness din naman sa akin as far as im concern di rin ako naman nagkulang kay ate sophia mula simula kasi that time wala ako work hands on ako sa kanya pero talagang hirap sya maka pick-up and to the point na di ko na tinuruan kasi napapagalitan ko lang iinit lang ulo ko lagi.. kaya kay cheska iba ang ginawa ko ngayon para di na ako mahirapan magturo ng math pinasok ko na dito at sana maging ok

@ sis girl_interrupted, pareho tayo ayaw din ni hubby na kumon ko pa si sophia kasi sayang naman daw si cheska nalang daw naman ngayon pero di ko talaga kayang nakikitang nahihirapan ang anak ko.. kaya ang eto ako rin ang sumasagot sa kumon nilang dalawa.. si cheska nlang daw pero di parin sya bigay pera para kay cheska.. ako rin ang sumasagot.. kasi ako lang ang may gusto na magkumon ang mga bata.. pero alam mo ba na everytime na magpapakitang gilas si cheska in front of other people and relatives proud din naman sya na nag kukumon ang mga baa.. pero syempre di nila alam na ako lang talaga may gusto nun!! >:( at nakikita ko talagang proud daddy sya.. ok na rin kahit sagot ko na :)

basta si sophia sinabihan ko na sana galingan nya kasi di ko alam hanggang kelang ko sya ma-ipapasok sa kumon sabi ko pagbutihan nya..
kay cheska naman ang plan namin di ko muna sya enroll ng nursery at kinder sa prep nalang para ma-xperiance lang nya preschool.. sa kumon ko nalang invest baka mas ok..

sana di kayo na bored sa post ko ;)

my daughter who is 7yrs. old had been in kumon for almost three years, i suppose (lost track of time na eh  :D). initially only in math but then nung nakita ko na kaya naman nya, i enrolled her in reading too. She is now a gold medal awardee for both reading and math. My only dilemma now is that she doesn't want to answer her worksheets in reading already. And same with others, stressful for both of us ang situation. We are having a fight over that thing kaya right now I'm planning to let her stop muna in reading, in math naman kasi she's still enjoying it. Based on feedbacks, how I wish there is an E.nopi center nearby para dun ko naman sya mapatry on reading.

E-nopi and kumon are good ways to start your kids' reading and math proficiency. As in dapat hindi pa nag-aaral. kasi mahirap if nag aaral na (grade scool) then tsaka pa lang mag start. kasi they contradict what is being taught at schools. na coconfused yung bata.

Update: My eldest son stopped his kumon after 2 months. He got tired and hated doing the worksheets. He was good at addition. Na-frustrate sya sa subtraction. My younger son (4 yrs old) is still continuing, but reading lang muna. It's an everyday struggle to make him do his worksheets. I'm being patient with him since i know that he needs it to improve his writing skills. I like kumon since it is a structured program kesa ako gagawa ng worksheets.

^ Kumon has both reading and math, same with enopi. Comparing my eldest son with his classmates (who are in kumon), some are in the honor list, some are not. I guess kung matalino talaga ang bata, i-kumon or hindi, matalino pa rin :) Follow your son's lead. If he needs to improve on something, go for it. but if it'll become a load for him or for you, it won't be worth it. IMO.

same sentiments here with other moms... my son was enrolled in Kumon and stopped last summer.... super stresssful both on our part... nabored talaga ang son ko considering na kahit alam nya na [textspeak!] answer pero kung di ma-meet yung required time wala pa din... after a couple of months we decided to enroll him in Galileo (Singapore Math) so far nage-enjoy naman sya kasi different method ng teaching and walang time pressure... hopefully magtuloy tuloy lang

I went to Kumon and E.nopi's trial class. Taking in consideration your reviews.. nakatulong talaga, mga sis! :D thanks!

I am honestly, turned off with Kumon. Dunno...baka sa Center lang na pinuntahan ko.  THey are also very strict and may pag ka chaka.. sorry.

But, when I went to E.nopi... almost instantly, super welcome and friendly ang mga teachers.  Even my son loved it (I hope, for long..)  I can hear my son from where I was waiting and very positive ang note ng teacher sa anak ko.. kahit na striving pa din naman.

Very colorful and E.nopi and they also have critical thinking.  Unlike Kumon na black and white photocopies,very rigid and is all in rote counting.

I amenrolling him to e.nopi.  We're trying it out.  I have peace in my heart in E.nopi but doubtful with Kumon.  So, I would always go with "mother's instinct".

Let's see how it goes.. balitaan ko din kayomga sis. :)

Mag stop na daughter ko sa Kumon this week.
In my opinion, nakadagdag lang sa stress. Kasi everyday andami ng homework sa school, tapos kumon pa. then rain or shine, i need to bring her sa center para mag worksheet uli.
Nagkasakit anak ko dahil sa pagod. Eh grade 2 na sya,marami ng activities sa school. Di na kayang isingit yung Kumon. Natanggal na din pati yung physical activity nya kasi sobrang pagod na. 1 week tuloy syang pinagpahinga ng doctor. Imbes na tumaas grades nya, bumaba at nawala sya sa honor. :(

Oh my, sis... :( Naoverwork na instead naglalaro. I don't want that to happen with my child. I am more inclined to have art/crafts day during the weekend kasi kahit nga trial class - parang di ko masingit ang enopi because of homework.

Gosh, di kaya makasama pa?

Sis iceebaby, oo nga eh.  It may work on other children but for my daughter nakasama pa.
Pasok nya sa school 7am to 1:00 pm. Lunch saglit paguwi ng bahay then 2:30 nasa Kumon na kami. Kung matapos kami ng 3:15 or 3:30 byahe pauwi ng bahay then gagawa na sya ng homework. matatapos sya ng lagpas 1 hour kasi may quizzes din everyday eh, wala ng spare time para maglaro. Kaya naawa nako,pinag stop ko na. May 2 weeks pa nga kami sa binayaran namin pero okay lang.
Na-ospital sya dahil tinamaan sya ng bacteria. Sabi ng doctor,mahina daw resistensya. eh rain or shine punta kami sa kumon, kainitan ng araw yung schedule nya. kung umuulan, kahit may payong,nababasa pa din kung minsan.

For parents out there, piece of advice lang po. It´s up to you to decide but please try to consider your child´s time to relax and play naman, maging balanse ika nga.
All of us wanted our child to reach beyond their capacity and we wanted them to get the best of knowledge we can offer. Not all children kasi may talino sa math or english,sa academics, meron naman magaling sa arts, sa sports.
Ang ginawa kong technique na lang sa Math, i ask her san sya hirap na area sa math. then hanap ako tutorial sa internet. tapos explain ko sa kanya, maski ako natututo hehe.. Tapos yung ibang subjects, the next day naman, example i read a topic in science in advance kahit mga 2 topic lang then para pag pasok nya sa school, advance sya ng 1 topic at least pag quiz napeperfect nya na.
