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.


Hours of Operation

Classes are held on Mondays and Thursdays from 2:30pm to 6:30pm. Students come to the Center one or two non-consecutive days each week. One-subject students attend class for approximately 20 – 30 minutes; two-subject students attend class for approximately 45 min – 1 hour on their own designated time. Please keep in mind this time may vary depending on the student’s level, age and the worksheets assigned.

All students are required to schedule their arrival time. It is important that students arrive on time to complete their assignment for the day. In order to maintain an atmosphere conducive to study we request that only students enter the Kumon Main Class Room.

Parents are welcome to use the waiting area during student’s center time. Please speak quietly and silence your cellphones while in the parent waiting area. Parents who do not want to use our waiting area, please return within 30 minutes for students with one subject or within 60 minutes for students with two subjects. Students waiting to be picked up must stay inside our premises.

Center Calendar

Kumon is a year-round program of study. Although, we do observe some national holidays as well as breaks in summer and winter, specific dates of center closings will be posted in the parent waiting area. 

Kumon homework is assigned 365 days per year unless otherwise requested at the time of registration or at least one week prior to any adjustment request. Parents may request weekends or vacations free from Kumon study one week in advance.

Class Attendance

Class attendance is a vital part of the Kumon Program. Observing students working in class assists greatly in the planning process for students. We also prefer to introduce new concepts in class so we may assist your child in reaching his/her Kumon goals.

In case of absences, parents need to make arrangements to pick up the homework from the center.


The instructor determines the number of worksheets assigned. It is important that the student is given the appropriate level and the amount of work. Parental feedback regarding student’s work is always welcome. Please contact the center at least a day before the class to discuss any adjustments or concerns regarding your child’s Kumon study plan. Any adjustments to the workload are at the discretion of the instructor.


Parents should inform the Kumon Staff about any planned vacations at least SEVEN days (one week) prior to leaving for vacation. This will allow for the student’s homework to be prepared and his/her lesson plan adjusted well in advance of departure for a vacation. We suggest that students take their Kumon homework along with them during the vacation. We do not suggest students take long vacation exceeded two months.


The student is expected to return all assigned homework on the following class day. All completed homework need to be graded and corrected before leaving the center. The worksheets are then left at the center for review by the instructor. Upon correcting, grading and entering of the worksheets into the lesson plan database. Please contact us if students want to keep the completed worksheets. Otherwise, we will recycle them. 


Continual communication between parents, student, and the instructor is important to the success of your student. There are many ways for parents, students to communicate with your instructor, such as communication notes, phone calls, emails, and parent conferences. You may also request to schedule a meeting with your instructor at any time to discuss your child's progress. Please note that meetings will not be scheduled during class time. 

We welcome your feedback. Please don’t hesitate to ask questions, share concerns, or generally let us know how everything is going.
