We offer class hours by appointment for all enrolled students.  Face masks are required in the Kumon Center for those who are not yet fully vaccinated; face masks are optional for those who are fully vaccinated.  We are still following CDC/IDPH guidelines for ensuring at least 3 feet of social distancing both student-to-student and student-to-staff.

We are now enrolling all ages (preschool through middle school are the best starting ages to enroll in Kumon).  Please click here to schedule an individual in-person Parent Orientation or call us at 847.488.9408 for more information.
