Kumon Shatters 300,000 Student Milestone

Tutoring Franchise Grows by 12 percent in North America

TEANECK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Kumon, the world's largest after-school math and reading enrichment company, grew to 310,034 students in February 2011, capping 12 percent growth in North America in the first two months of the year. The ability-based learning program helps children develop strong academic skills, confidence and a love of learning.

"Parents are investing in education and making their child's development their first priority," said Kumon North America president, Hideki Kusuzawa. "As the need for enrichment grows, Kumon is an attractive business for professionals seeking rewarding careers in education."

Franchise openings are available across the country as the demand for ability-based learning increases. The company aims to open 100 more centers across the country in 2011, on top of the 1,369 franchises in the U.S. and 1,775 in North America, according to Mr. Kusuzawa.
