Kumon Franchise Opens First Math and Reading Learning Center in East Palo Alto, California

TEANECK, N.J. - June 1, 2016 // PRNewswire // - Kumon, the world's largest after-school education franchise, is expanding in the Bay Area with the opening of its first learning center in East Palo Alto, California. There are currently 11 Kumon Centers in San Mateo County. The first Kumon Center in East Palo Alto will give thousands of additional parents access to a nearby learning center for their pre-school to high school aged children.

East Palo Alto has seen an explosion of development and growth since the revitalization project in the early 2000s. The boom of the technology industry has moved young high-tech professionals and high-income couples from neighboring areas of Menlo Park and Palo Alto.

"East Palo Alto's recent significant growth and proximity to Silicon Valley, one of the wealthiest and most expensive regions in the United States, makes it an ideal location for Kumon's expansion," said Larry Lambert, vice president of franchise recruitment at Kumon North America. "The demand for Kumon learning centers continues to be seen and we are excited to bring the Kumon Method to even more families in East Palo Alto."

Kumon's Presence in San Mateo County:

  • 3,406 subjects enrolled at 11 centers
  • First center opened in 1982

The Kumon Method empowers children to become self-learners and is designed to advance children's math and reading skills while fostering a love for learning. Kumon sparks critical thinking, establishes a pattern of success and builds confidence that can lead to accelerated learning throughout life.
