About the Center


Welcome to Kumon Math and Reading Center of Downers Grove - Downtown!
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 their academic career, Kumon is designed to help them 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 they desire.

Individualized Instruction
Kumon is an individualized learning method that allows each student to study at a comfortable level, regardless of age or school grade, and advance beyond their current school grade level. At Kumon, students become enthusiastic about learning and experience a sense of accomplishment as they increase their academic ability and develop their potential to the maximum.

Kumon places great importance on self-learning, encouraging students to read the worksheets, think, and do the exercises on their own. The ability to study independently helps students become proactive and assists them in the pursuit of their goals and aspirations.

Small Step Worksheets
Kumon worksheets are designed to take students from easy problems to difficult problems in very small steps. This enables each student to study at an appropriate level and advance smoothly through the program.

Kumon Instructor
Kumon Instructors discover what individual students are capable of and bring out their potential. The instructor pays careful attention to each student's academic ability, personality, and how they solve the worksheets. Based on their observations, the instructor provides effective support to ensure study at a level that is "just right" for each individual.
