Known for its individualized learning method and sustainable franchise model, Kumon Philippines was heralded as one of the winners of Entrepreneur Philippines’ annual Franchise Awards held in July 2013.
Keeping a close watch on top expanding businesses and recognizing their extensive growth over the years, Entrepreneur Philippines recognized Kumon’s significant growth of franchisees with about 250 learning centers catering to over 55,000 students nationwide.
With its strong support from its associates the world over, Kumon Philippines bagged three prestigious titles: Top 15 Fastest Growing Franchising Companies in the Philippines, Top 5 Outstanding Franchising Companies in the Philippines and Best in Franchise Support Award.
According to Mr. Tadashi Nakatsuka, President of Kumon Philippines, “For an individual to be successful in the field of education, one needs to have a genuine desire in developing students.”
Mr. Nakatsuka also shared the spotlight with the people behind Kumon’s success. For almost two decades of operation in the Philippines, he took it to heart to recognize that it is not only the specialized worksheets but also the passionate and well-trained Kumon Instructors and staff that made it the world’s largest after-school Math and Reading Program.
The Kumon Method has been honing children’s ability to self-study and laying out a solid academic foundation anchored in values like self-initiative and discipline since 1954. What started as Mr. Toru Kumon’s love for his son, Takeshi, paved the way for the development of numerous sets of an intelligently-structured Kumon worksheet that is widely used by 4.4 million students in 48 countries and regions worldwide.
“There will always be room for improvement. After three years, we plan to extend the benefit of learning from Kumon to as many as 75,000 children,” Nakatsuka concluded. Good enough is never a mantra among its people. With its fast-growing number of franchisees in the country and the positive and critical reception for it, there is no stopping for Kumon.
