Kumon Franchise Expands in NYC Metro Area with the Opening of its Second Math and Reading Center in the Bronx
Kumon Math and Reading Center of Bronx-North Riverdale Now Taking Enrollments
BRONX, N.Y. - May 3, 2018 // PRNewswire // - Thousands of additional parents in the New York City metro area will now have access to an individualized learning program for their preschool to high school aged children. Kumon, the world's largest after-school math and reading program, is expanding in the area with the opening of Kumon Math and Reading Center of Bronx-North Riverdale.
There are 43 Kumon Math and Reading Centers in New York City, but this will be just the second one to open in the Bronx. The new learning center in the Bronx is part of Kumon's 2018 expansion plan of welcoming 100 new franchisees nationwide.
"North Riverdale is an ideal location for Kumon's expansion due to the competitive nature of the educational landscape in New York City and the fact that Riverdale is one of the most sought after residential neighborhoods," said Larry Lambert, vice president of franchise recruitment at Kumon North America. "As parents continue to prioritize educational opportunities outside of the classroom, we strive to deliver the highest quality of education to meet those needs."
The Kumon Method empowers preschool to high school aged children to become self-learners and is designed to advance math and reading skills while fostering a love for learning. It goes beyond traditional tutoring by actively developing critical thinking skills as children progress independently through a carefully crafted curriculum.
Kumon sparks critical thinking, establishes a pattern of success and builds confidence that can lead to accelerated learning throughout life.
