About Us

As an organisation, Kumon provides supplementary, after-school learning programmes for children. Spread across 51 countries, our learning method aims to foster sound, capable individuals who are able to independently carve out a path for themselves in life.

At Kumon we are dedicated to fully pursuing the potential of each individual student.

Kumon Instructors provide just enough guidance for their students to be able to do the exercises on their own. Our programmes aim to furnish students with the ability to advance to high school level material through self-learning as early as possible in life. Kumon students study independently from an early age and develop both a high level of academic ability and the ability to learn independently, or what we at Kumon refer to as ‘self-learning’ ability. As a result, our students build self-esteem, learn that they can do anything if they try, and develop the ability to take on new challenges for themselves.

After children who have done Kumon grow up and enter the workforce, they are able to think of solutions by themselves even when faced with difficult challenges. The skills that students gain through doing Kumon go on to help them achieve their goals and dreams.
