Kumon is the market leader in supplementary education provision, and, some 60 years since its birth, maintains the same high standards and founding principle: to help as many children realise their potential and excel academically as possible and giving them the tools required for a lifelong love affair with learning.
Named as Brand of the Year 2014 by the British Franchise Association, Kumon continues to lead the industry offering bespoke programmes in Mathematics and English. Founded in 1958 in Japan by concerned parent and gifted teacher, Toru Kumon, to aid his son’s ability with mathematics, the Kumon Institute of Education has grown into a global enterprise covering 50 countries with 24,700 centres.
Kumon aims for all its students to become independent, advanced learners with a positive outlook on study. Using The Kumon Method, developed over the last sixty years, students and instructors are encouraged to analyse problems in a non-linear way; thinking and growing symbiotically. Indeed, Kumon offers so much more than the traditional teaching approach, empowering students to go beyond the confines of the course parameters in an effort to gain wider understanding of the subject material. Kumon students are never limited by, or dependent upon, the skills and knowledge of others. There’s is the brightest of futures.
