Georgetown-1 Bloomingdale 1, Kumon Learning Center.

a new business is open(ing?) in Bloomingdale. The Kumon Math and Reading Center

1912 North Capitol NW

Kumon was started 50 years ago in Japan by Toru Kumon, a teacher and parent who wanted to help his son do better in school. The unique instructional method he created was so successful that his son was able to do calculus by the time he was in the sixth grade.

Kumon reading and math programs help children master those fundamental skills so important to their overall academic performance.

Our founder’s belief that every child possesses untapped abilities and the potential to excel remains central to our philosophy. In short, there’s nothing a child can’t do.

The Kumon Method was developed to unlock the potential in every child. That’s our mission, and we’re accomplishing it every day at more than 1,400 Kumon Centers in North America alone.

With centers in 43 countries, Kumon has helped more students succeed worldwide than any other after-school program.

sounds great!
The only other center in DC is in georgetown.
maybe Dean & Deluca will be moving in next..........

happy new year. may many more business's open up this year.

I am a retired teacher and this is a great program.

What is the fee for this program?

This program may help to bring in more families to the area.
