Kumon Prepares Children for High-Level Education

American parents have recognised the value of the Kumon supplementary education system in their childrens' lives. The Japanese franchise has become increasingly popular in the United States amongst parents who strive for the very best in relation to their child's education. The Kumon method fosters a valuable level of comfort in children when it comes to solving complex mathematical problems and reading exercises, based on the two key principles of speed and repetition. As enrolment in top tier middle and high schools becomes increasingly competitive for American students, the market for Kumon's proven methods continues to grow. Kumon reached a record subject enrolment of over 400,000 earlier this year from franchises in the US, Canada and Mexico. Kumon has been established in South Africa since 1997 and is seeking franchisees to join the brand. There is very little risk or burden involved with opening a Kumon franchise, a factor that is very appealing to franchisees, and has certainly contributed to the network's steady expansion.
