FAQs: Opening a Kumon franchise

Getting started

How we can help you

No. Our Instructors come from a variety of different backgrounds; from business and finance to education and law. Many 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 suitable for children, of adequate size and condition, and comply with all health and safety legislation. Increasingly our Instructors are using dedicated or retail space as this offers high brand visibility, accessibility and enhanced instruction potential and enables them to grow their student base in an efficient and scalable manner.

A study centre opens for class typically two 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.

Each child, no matter their age or ability, is a prospective Kumon student. We have identified areas of expansion based on market research and potential interest. We’d love to talk to you about existing or future opportunities, so do get in touch with our franchise team on 0800 854 714.
