Following the success of Kumon in Japan, Kumon opened its first overseas centre in New York in 1974. In the following years we expanded to Brazil, Germany, Taiwan and the United Kingdom. The first Australian trial was held in the Ruse Public School in Sydney. Its success led us to open our first Australian Kumon franchise in 1984.

The Kumon franchise network has since continued to grow around the world, and today we have over 4 million enrolments in 50 countries and regions. In Australia and New Zealand there are now over 300 Kumon franchises, with over 50,000 enrolments. The demand for Kumon in Australia and New Zealand continues to increase year after year, which we are looking to meet by expanding our number of locations.
