Realising Dreams by Developing Self-learning Ability
Improving academic results is important to children. Kumon has achieved unprecedented results in this aspect. However, what we pursue is more than just boosting academic results and enhancing children’s Math, English and Chinese ability. The true value of Kumon is to develop children’s self-learning attitude and ability. Children will gain a sense of satisfaction from self-learning and they will keep advancing and striving for their dreams.
As such, Kumon encourages children to study every day and learn to be independent through self-learning. Children gain confidence from solving problems on their own. When they grow up and step into society, they can still keep learning and make efforts towards realising their goals and dreams.
