I will soon be launching my First Class Learning centre in Southampton. My son did Kumon for 2 years, before I knew about FCL. Kumon does not follow a national cirruclum and is very repetitive. FCL adopts the teaching methods and approaches that are presented in schools, therefore consolidating that learning. Also with FCL programmes children can cover more than one topic at the same time, which is more engaging for the child. It good great value for money.

First Class Learning is great! I have been there for 5 years and it is amazing! I am now top of my half of the year at maths. I tried KipMcgraph for a few weeks but that led me to become worse at English since they gave me the minimum amount of work. I came back to FCL and now, in high school, I'm in set one for almost all my classes! They are also really friendly there and encouraging too! My dad recommended a few friends of ours there and they loved it too! I,d recommend it to most pupils! smile

FCL is just a pale imitation of the Kumon programmes. My two children attended FCL for a while but went back to Kumon as it offers a far better structure and superior materials.

Hi. I sent my child to kumon which she found dull & repetitive. Went to kip McGrath but I found I got no feedback from centre and my child wanted to do everything on computers so got lazy with writing out in the traditional manner. Some one told me about Fcl. So tried that. We LOVE it, tutor identified her weaknesses and put her on a programme of work. After about 3-4 myhs I saw improvements. So far so good. Certainly cheaper than private tutors and my child looks forward to the weekly visit to the centre. Btw you do get a lot of work to do at home and I have to mark it do I know exactly what my child is doing or not doing well.

I have 2 children. Both attend a first class learning
centre. My kids love it. It adheres to the national curriculum.
Centre managers great. I think it helps if the centre manager
Is a qualified teacher as they have more experience with
Children. I think its great to start early . It definitely gives them that
Confidence. My children have been there for 7 months and i can
See improvements! My daughters teacher asked if i was doing
Extra work because she can see her maths has improved.
The more you practice the better you will get and this improves confidence.

I tried first class learning with my 2 when the local Kumon centre closed, but we gave it up 6 months later as we couldn't really see any progress. Our son was struggling with fractions at the time and because the FCL programme focuses more on curriculum based activities, they didn't really tackle the underlying issue that was his tables were not strong enough. We've gone back to Kumon now although we have to travel 20 miles to get to our nearest centre sad

Well that is an unbiased review for you! Don't know anything about them but wouldn't take the word of a centre manager, they are bound to think they are good.

Yes I'm a centre manager of FCL and it is very beneficial to your child/children. They do adhere to the national curriculum. It is taught in a modular fashion, this way the child doesn't get bored. First class learning is excellent value for money with a big subsidy for two subjects. If you have any more questions please ask.

Anyone out there tried First Class Learning. Heard they are like Kumon but not repetitive at all. Also adhere to the National Curriculum. Unfortunately dont have a centre near me but happy to travel if I get a positive reponse from this thread. Thanks
