Kumon – celebrating 40 years in Australia!

Throughout Kumon Australia and New Zealand’s 40-year history since our establishment in 1984, we have achieved many milestones. During this time, over one million children have relied on Kumon to develop essential mathematics and reading skills through studying Kumon worksheets. In September 2023, we achieved another milestone, with over 59,000 enrolments – our highest ever.

Furthermore, as of December 2023 we were proud to surpass 10,000 Kumon programme completers.  Each of these students has developed confidence, a daily study habit, self-learning skills, and a high level of mathematics and reading ability.

Our achievements demonstrate Kumon to be a trusted, dependable brand, with Instructors and staff who are dedicated to improving learning outcomes for children. Kumon Instructors collect and observe data specific to each child’s learning situation by reviewing their completion time, accuracy, ability to correct mistakes and motivation levels. With this information, Instructors are able to identify which worksheet is best suited for each child to study next.

This means Kumon Instructors can support each student to study at a level that is just right for that child. At this level, students who need to build on foundational concepts are supported. Those who can be challenged by more complex work are extended. Our students progress at their own pace, not bound by age and school grade.

In tandem with expert guidance from Kumon Instructors – who provide individualised study plans, provide regular progress updates, and support students to develop self-learning ability – we firmly believe that our step-by-step worksheets are the best way to develop students’ calculation and reading ability.

Thank you to all our Kumon students, parents and Instructors. We could not have made it this far without you. We look forward to supporting even more students to pursue their potential for the next 40 years and beyond.
