FAQs: Opening a Kumon centre

Getting started

How we can help you

No. Our Instructors come from a variety of different backgrounds and have experience in other fields. Some of our Instructors are Kumon parents who have seen how effective the programme has been with their own children and have decided to join our growing network to help other children reach their potential.
A Kumon study centre must be a permanent, dedicated venue, suitable for children, of adequate size and condition, which allows for signage and which complies with all health and safety legislation. Commerical and retail space is also considered as this offers high brand visibility, accessibility, enhanced instruction potential, and enables Instructors to grow their student base in an efficient manner.
A study centre opens for class typically four to six days per week. Outside of class, your time must be flexible to the needs of your business. As your business grows you may need to extend your class times and add extra days at the centre.

The first six months can be demanding as you are learning about the programmes and also recruiting your students and staff, so you will need to be prepared and highly organised.
