Leesburg is welcoming its first Kumon franchise.
Kumon is the world’s largest after-school math and reading program. The centers offer an individualized learning program for preschool through high school children.
The first Kumon franchise in the Leesburg area opened in Lansdowne in 2015. Larry Lambert, vice president of franchise recruitment at Kumon North America, said that the local demand for tutoring and enrichment programs prompted the company to open a second location nearby.
The new Leesburg location, at 635 Potomac Station Drive, will make 41 Kumon math and reading centers in Virginia and six in Loudoun County.
“Due to the emphasis placed on academics in the area, we’ve seen a high demand for supplemental education programs,” Lambert stated. “We are appreciative of the opportunity to continue to meet those demands and are committed to providing as many children as possible with an academic advantage and love for learning.”
Kumon’s teaching method empowers children to become self-learners and is designed to advance math and reading skills while fostering a love for learning. Their tutors and teachers work to spark critical thinking, establish a pattern of success and build confidence that can lead to accelerated learning throughout life.
