Why is there so much repetition in Kumon?
As with sports and music, gaining proficiency with learning skills requires frequent practice. Acquiring skills often means performing the same tasks again and again. Kumon enables each child to work with material at every stage until they are ready-really ready-to move on to the next challenge.
Applying skills repeatedly is precisely what reinforces them and sures that they are permanently retained. Skills are "hardwired" into the long-term memory, where they can be effortlessly drawn upon when needed. Repetition is crucial for building strong brain power.
