It’s Never Too Young to Start in Kumon

Enrolling a child in a learning center at an early age has been a source of debate among parents and professionals. Some say that children should be allowed enough time to have fun, while some encourage early learning for better brain and motor skills development.

In Kumon, Mr. Toru Kumon’s philosophy centered on the child’s unlimited potential to grow and develop. He believed that children, no matter what age, are capable of learning a range of topics as long as the proper materials are made available to them.

With this, here are three reasons why you should enroll your child in Kumon at an early age:

Young children easily absorb information.

It is a fact that young children, by nature, enjoy learning. Young children are considered sponges wherein they are eager to learn everything and anything. They can acquire enormous amounts of information, such as math basics or vocabulary if given sufficient practice with the proper material.

Kumon makes use of colorful worksheets and supplementary learning materials (number boards and books) to engage your child in the Math and Reading Programs. These materials are given with the goal of developing your child’s attention and focus, among other skills.

Young children learn the basics with no apparent effort.

One of the advantages of young students is the absence of past knowledge and learning experiences. They easily learn the basics if it is presented well, if they are accorded with the proper praise, and if it is something that they are naturally good at.

Kumon focuses on building a solid foundation of the fundamentals in your child. He will start at a level that is lower than his school grade level to enable him to master the basics, to develop in him the proper study skills and to ingrain in him the proper study attitude. Being a master of the basics allows your child to study advanced topics with ease and less effort.

Young children build self-confidence before getting into big school.

The transition from preschool to the big school is a daunting task for both parents and young students. Parents fear that their children are not as prepared, while students fear the sudden change. Developing certain skills and learning certain topics at a young age paves the way for young children to build a sense of self-confidence and preparedness.

Kumon aims for young children to be able to study topics beyond their school grade level independently. The worksheets are designed to help your child develop the confidence and skills to learn materials on his own. Self-confidence allows him to be better prepared to tackle challenges – in school and in the future.

      Hi Ms. Rose,

      Thank you for sharing your concern with us.
      Readiness in assisting young students is one of the factors that each Center considers in accepting students. But rest assured that we will be sharing this with the area manager of the Center.

      Thank you.
