Founded in 1954 by a father of a second grader in elementary school, Kumon was born out of a father’s love for his son so that he ranks better at mathematics. Since then, Kumon has been helping millions of children across the world in scoring exceptionally well, and has become a pioneer in providing after-school programmes for overall development of those children.
‘Kumon’ has been ranked among the Top Franchise 100 brand list as an acknowledgement of its remarkable contribution in the field of education, which encourages the budding entrepreneurs in the space to do even better.
Kumon’s Brand Growth
First established in Japan, The Kumon method – once started because of the love for the child, is now a highly esteemed method of education that benefits students around the world. Today, Kumon is located in 50 countries and regions, with more than 4 million students enrolled in over 24,700 centers.
The Kumon method is aimed at building up the basic academic skills of reading, writing, and maths regardless of a student’s age. It is an individualised study method that enables students to become self-learners.
Elaborating about the brand, Takaya Kitanishi, Managing Director, Kumon India and Sri Lanka, says, “The Kumon method is an individualized learning method. Students start with the level where they can attain a perfect score by studying on their own. If the students continue to study at their own pace, they will catch up with their school grade level and will eventually advance far beyond it.”
“We would like to reach out to every corner of India gradually and give every child an opportunity to experience this unique methodology of Kumon. However, as of now, we are primarily focusing on tier 2 cities,” Kitanishi further adds.
