Why are some school topics not covered in Kumon?
Kumon is streamlined to nurture essential skills that will help your child succeed throughout school. In math, computational and arithmetic skills are stressed because they are essential to subjects all the way through calculus.
Likewise, Kumon Reading stresses comprehension because such exercises naturally develop good grammar, writing skills and critical reasoning ability.
Building a strong foundation of core skills maximizes your child's potential for success within and beyond the subjects of math and reading. Little by little, your child builds a foundation of knowledge and a command of essential skills that have almost universal applications. In this way Kumon develops sharp, agile minds equipped for tackling even complex abstract concepts.
