Kumon Center of Ladue Policy & Tuition Guide (November 2016)

Parent Conferences

Parents can schedule a 15- to 30-minute conference about their child's progress with Dr. Kimura. Slots must be reserved by phone or email one week in advance and are on a first-come, first-serve basis.


Home Grading

Home grading is a mandatory part of Kumon study. It is the parents' responsibility to accurately grade and record all of their child's Kumon homework.



Requests for changes to assignments and/or extra homework must be submitted at least 24 hours in advance. If you wish to have your homework mailed to you, sufficient time must be given.


Answer & Solution Books

Answer books for home grading are available for Math levels 3A-O and Reading levels 2A-L. Math solution books are available for levels E through O.

Answer books and solution books must be returned in good condition upon completion of the level. Lost materials or those returned in unusable condition will incur a replacement fee. The replacement fee for a lost answer book is $5, while the replacement fee for a lost solution book is $15.


Homework Bags

One homework bag per subject is provided at registration. New bags to replace lost or damaged ones must be purchased from the center for $5.


Parking/Child Pick-Up

Parents are notified via text message or email when child/children are ready to be picked up. Contact the office for details and to provide contact information.



  • Checks are made payable to Kumon St. Louis.
  • Monthly tuition is due by the 20th of the prior month. Payments received after the 1st are considered late and will incur a $10 late fee; after 15 days, work will be withheld. This applies to mailed tuition. Please allow adequate transit time if you wish to mail your tuition to the Kumon Center of Ladue.
  • All future EFT payments will be set to withdraw on the 20th of the prior month.
  • If you do not receive your tuition envelope at the beginning of the month, it is your responsibility to ask for it.
  • We are not responsible for tuition handed in late by students. If you choose to allow your child to give us the tuition check and he/she forgets to do so, it will be considered late.

Late Fees

  • A fee of $10 per student/per subject will be charged for late payments (tuition not paid by the 1st of the month).
  • A fee of $25 per check will be charged for returned checks.
  • As a courtesy to our families with multiple registered children, no family's monthly late fees for one month will ever exceed $50.


One month’s absence per year is allowed without necessitating new enrollment. New enrollment requires full payment of the $50 registration fee. A completed absence form must be submitted two weeks prior to the beginning of a new month to ensure that electronic fund payments are not cancelled.



Notification of discontinuation is to be made by the 20th of the prior month. A student is automatically considered “discontinued” in the program after one month of absence. Once a student is discontinued, the registration fee of $50 is required for re-enrollment.
