Kumon Math & Reading Centers – Franchise Information

What is Kumon?

Kumon is the world’s leading afterschool learning program, designed to give kids an academic advantage. Kumon goes far beyond tutoring and other learning programs by enabling kids to develop critical thinking skills and the ability to learn new materials independently. With the unique Kumon Self-Learning Program, kids progress at their own pace, only moving forward once they have mastered the tasks at hand. This approach translates into results that go far beyond school, boosting confidence and other assets that will help them throughout their lives.  


Company History

Kumon was developed in 1954, in Japan, by a teacher named Toru Kumon, who wanted his son Takeshi to develop a love for learning. His goal was to thoroughly prepare his son for the rigorous high school and college entry exams.


With short, incremental daily assignments that required mastery before proceeding, Takeshi progressed and his abilities improved significantly. Other parents took notice of these results, and the Kumon Method was born.


Today, Kumon has helped millions of children gain academic advantage in 50 countries. In the US, Kumon has been active since 1974, and currently has more than 1,500 centers.
