About the Center


Welcome to our Kumon Math and Reading Center. For more than 60 years, Kumon’s after-school academic enrichment program has helped children achieve success worldwide. We strive to instill in children the desire to achieve and the motivation to learn on their own. Whether your child is seeking enrichment, needs help catching up or is just beginning his or her academic career, Kumon is designed to help him or her develop a love of learning.

Students advance through the program at their own pace. Our emphasis on individualized learning helps your child become focused, motivated and self-reliant. We monitor each child’s progress to ensure comprehension before moving on to a new concept. With a strong academic foundation, critical thinking and problem solving abilities, your child has the potential to achieve whatever he or she desires.

The Kumon Math Program is a comprehensive curriculum that develops the necessary skills to help children progress from counting through calculus. For more information about the Kumon Math Program.

The Kumon Reading Program begins with basic phonics and progresses all the way through advanced reading comprehension. For more information about the Kumon Reading Program.

  • We expect our students to come to class with all of their Kumon homework 100% complete, along with all mistakes corrected.
  • Students who come to class with work that is incomplete must complete all of it before being assigned new work.
  • A part of the Kumon experience is to develop a high standard of discipline, and neat work is essential to that development.
  • Properly label all work, whether in the classroom or at home, with student name, date, start time, and finish time.

Parent Expectations
  • In order for students to obtain the most optimal experience from Kumon, parents' involvement is necessary.
  • Along with the Instructor and center staff, parents should support students and praise their achievements.
  • Parents are expected and encouraged to maintain strong communication, and also help students by doing homegrading.

Parent Communication
  • Because classroom time is devoted to student instruction and promoting independent study skills, parents should reserve entering the classroom for imperative situations only.
  • We welcome communication and encourage parents to ask questions about their child’s progress.
  • Call or email the center during office hours to talk to the Kumon Instructor, to schedule a meeting, or parent conference.
  • Our office hours are: 10am-2pm Monday through Thursday, by appointment.

  • Parent conferences will be available approximately 2 times a year (parents will be notified 3-4 weeks in advance) to discuss student development and progress goals.

  • Parents are highly encouraged to home grade students’ work so that students can correct any mistakes immediately.
  • Parents will be given appropriate answer keys.
  • Answer keys will be exchanged when students take achievement tests to move onto the next level.
  • Homegrading takes approximately 5 minutes each day, yet the benefits are long-term.
