4. How are the available business locations selected?

The opening of new Centres is directly linked to the realisation of Kumon’s vision. We aim to give as many students as possible the opportunity to learn using our materials, and thus, contribute to the global community.

When planning new locations the Company carefully considers the following factors:

– The number of children of a target age group residing in the available location
– The number of children within the available location that already study at other Kumon Learning Centres
As our mission is to develop the potential of as many children as possible, Kumon does not assign exclusive territories to Instructors.

All new Kumon Instructors must offer both the Maths and English programmes within their Kumon Learning Centre.
