Ever since its establishment, Kumon has consistently aimed to help students develop a firm foundation of academic ability and become people who are capable of learning on their own. Kumon Instructors have a strong belief in the potential of each and every student they encounter. Kumon maximises students’ ability, discovers the “just-right” level of study for each student and provides students with optimum learning materials. The Kumon Method, which was originally developed by a father for his son, is now available in 49 countries and regions around the world.
The Kumon Method transcends national borders and cultural barriers and has been accepted all around the world. This widespread acceptance is the direct result of Kumon’s belief in the limitless potential of all human beings, and our pursuit of that potential through the systematic implementation of individualised education. Every parent or guardian believes in the potential of their child and has great dreams for his or her future. The Kumon Method does much more than simply help students develop solid academic ability. It also provides students with the joyful experience of encountering new material and making progress on their own. The goal of study with the Kumon Method is the development of independent and proactive individuals who know how to learn independently. When our students grow up and go out into the world, they will be fully capable of finding their own way in life. Two things are necessary for this result. One is the Kumon Instructor who discovers what is “just right” for each student. The other is the Kumon learning materials that are composed of a finely graded series of steps designed to encourage students to progress on their own initiative. This combination of the Kumon Instructor and our learning materials makes it possible to provide individualised study that is “just right” for each student. All students, regardless of age or school grade level, can enhance their ability with Kumon. Education with the Kumon Method supports the personal and academic growth of students in line with the hopes of parents and guardians. By consistently delivering concrete results, people can see for themselves how we at Kumon bring out the potential in each of our students, which is why the Kumon Method has been so well accepted worldwide.
Kumon Programmes Used Worldwide
At Kumon we simultaneously nurture a high level of
academic ability as well as the ability
to self-learn with our maths and language worksheets
The Kumon worksheets used around the world are all based on the same approach. That is, they allow students to steadily advance to higher level material by letting all students begin from a point that they can do comfortably, regardless of their age or grade at school, and by making it possible for each student to study at the “just-right” level, wherein the burden on students is increased little by little. Our worksheet developers at Kumon are constantly learning from children in an effort to improve our current worksheet lineup and also to develop new and better worksheets to provide Kumon students with the best possible learning materials.
Kumon is for students of all ages and abilities. Common reasons families come to Kumon is to help their children regain confidence in maths or English or to extend their child's natural academic talents. Increasingly, parents are coming to Kumon while their children are in preschool to establish a habit of learning a little each day and to ensure their children start school with confidence.
