After successfully developing materials to help his second grade son who was struggling with math, Toru Kumon opened up the first center in his home in Japan in 1956. For two years, this new approach to education was refined and formalized in his home. In 1958, the Kumon Institute of Education was established with the objective of helping students excel in math and gain a love for learning.
"Only by empowering children to achieve through their own efforts will they gain the means and motivation to realize their full potential."
Murals Your Way has been happy to be a part of the Kumon centers for the past 3-4 years, featuring custom murals in their offices. Their personalized design of a world map showcases the different countries with Kumon centers and the faces of their students from around the world. Murals Your Way is honored to feature their murals in such a wonderful institute that is dedicated to helping children fulfill their hidden potential and make the world a better place for all of us.
