How Kumon supports the growth of our youngest minds

Kumon’s experience with helping children reach their potential in maths and English has shown that – so long as the child is ready – the earlier that a student begins learning, the better. Therefore, Kumon has a range of options available for our youngest minds, including Kumon’s Pencils Skills Programme.

To shed some light on the experience of our early learners, we spoke to some of parents of pre-schoolers who have enrolled their children into Kumon. Here are their thoughts:


“I would say my children are not too young. I’ve noticed that it has helped in other areas, particularly my little boy because he’s definitely more disciplined now. He knows when he’s in class that he needs to listen and he needs to focus and he knows that it’s important. He realises, in his own way that he’s learning. He tells me, “Oh mum, I did this today and I haven’t done that before.”’ – Tam


“I don’t think it would be too much for my daughter to do Kumon every day because each workbook only takes a small amount of time. Every day I sit with her to do something else as well with paper and pen. I thought to myself, ‘Why not start something in a systematic way that has some kind of system to slowly introduce her to difficult concepts?’ So starting one step at a time, with a little amount of my time and her time, we can achieve a bigger result.” – Stephanie


“There’s a period when children are very open and curious and if you can catch them there, then the learning kind of happens naturally without distress. The learning just becomes part of who they are, because they are still in their developmental stage. If you can catch them there then it all takes off.” – Leticia


“When I enrolled my children, both of them, they had very low muscle tone and their fine motor skills were very poor, so they couldn’t even hold a pencil. For me, the pencil work all came from Kumon. I just thought they’d be ready for kindergarten, I wasn’t expecting them to excel, just to be ready for school. Anything after that was exciting for me.” – Eva
