Home > Kumon's Aspirations
We have a dream: to contribute to world peace through education.
We will head towards the realization of that dream by fostering people through individualized education.
Acting as a global citizen, Kumon will contribute to the growth and happiness of each individual by putting into practice our Mission, Vision, and Values.
By discovering the potential of each individual
and developing his or her ability to the maximum,
we aim to foster sound, capable people
and thus contribute to the global community.
We wish that all people in all countries and regions in the world
will have the opportunity to learn with the Kumon Method,
and that each individual in the world will be enthusiastically self-learning
and making efforts towards realizing his or her goals and dreams.
What We, Associates, Care About
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 hearts 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 ourselves,
"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.
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 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.
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.
