In Kumon, parents play a very important role

It is important to develop daily study habits

Students go to a Kumon Centre, while worksheet study is carried out daily at home. By doing so, parents’ attention to children’s study at home is essential to assist students in nurturing good study habits and progressing smoothly. In the Kumon Method, parents play a very important role.

Kumon is a home based education system

The Origins of the Kumon Method began with a series of handwritten materials on loose-leaf A5-sized sheets that a high school mathematics teacher, Toru Kumon, created for his son, Takeshi. Today, Kumon students go to a Kumon Centre on a regular basis while worksheet study is carried out daily at home, so that they can nurture good study habits and progress smoothly.

Homework, which students can solve on their own, is assigned

While studying at a Kumon Centre, children follow a simple routine that supports their study at home. The Instructor’s role is to observe their study behaviour, particularly when doing repetition and studying new content. The Instructor carefully assigns homework, so that students can think through and solve problems on their own even at home.

Parents’ support is important at home

Parental support at home is very important in the Kumon Method. The same as in sports or music education, it is essential to continue the worksheet study every day. For example, setting a time for doing Kumon homework every day before dinner will become a daily routine for the child, thus allowing the child to progress smoothly through the programme.
