About Kumon Math & Reading Centers
Kumon is the world's leading afterschool learning program and it is designed to give kids an academic advantage. It goes far beyond tutoring and other learning programs by enabling kids to develop critical thinking skills and the ability to learn new materials independently. Entrepreneur Magazine ranks Kumon as the Number One Education Franchise, an achievement that Kumon holds for 17 years.
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 48 countries. In the US, Kumon has been active since 1974, and currently has more than 1,500 centers.
