The Kumon Way

The Kumon Way are the values that drive Kumon associates to realise the Mission and Vision of Kumon.



What We, Associates, Care About

What we care about most is each individual child

All Kumon learning must be, without exception a useful learning experience for the child’s growth and future.

We must provide an opportunity to learn with the Kumon Method to as many children as possible.

These two things we always hold firmly in our heart as we approach our work.

They are the sole reason for Kumon’s existence and development and are also our responsibility for the children.

If, along the way, we waver or there is dissent, we will always stop to ask:

“Will this really benefit the children?’

and thus we will find our way once again

With this in mind, we will do everything in our power to make this educational method even more valuable and to allow as many children as possible to learn with the Kumon Method.

What we next cherish are the people who work towards achieving our common goal

We have the highest respect for Kumon Instructors as well as all other people who care about children and who wish to contribute to society through education with us.

With heartfelt appreciation and affinity, we strive to give our fullest support and to work in unity with all of these people.

We also greatly value all of our associates

We must do our best to create and maintain the kind of workplace culture and environment where all associates can energetically approach their work with the sense of mission and challenge and can better themselves every day, while a decent livelihood is ensured and adequate compensation offered to all.

Finally, we put great emphasis on our commitment to the community

We are grateful to our local communities in which we live and work.

As a conscientious corporate citizen, we take an active part in a variety of activities to improve the quality of life in our communities such as the preservation of the natural environment and resources and the improvement of local education and culture.

In this way, we will fulfill our responsibility and obligation to the global community

Lastly, we take to heart the following three things and will remain true to them in any situation:

1) We affirm to be upright citizens by always asking ourselves if our words and deeds are fair and just

2) We will strive to be people who can feel joy and a sense of wonder while maintaining our conviction and pride as educators.

3) We will cultivate a sense of modesty and humility so that we can always grow with each passing day.
