Kumon Celebrates 60th Anniversary; Launches Logo to Convey Passion for the Future
Kumon, the after-school enrichment programme that originated from Japan, celebrates its 60th anniversary this year. To commemorate the milestone, Kumon launched a commemorative logo that will be used throughout 2018.
In essence the design of the logo is based on three concepts – global outreach, evolving and deepening of learning and spreading of knowledge.
The globe in the logo symbolises Kumon’s intention of delivering the joy of learning, across generations, to different regions around the globe. The change of colour from the Kumon Blue to warm colours in the logo shows Kumon’s continuous evolving and deepening people’s learning in colourful and interesting ways. It also represents the rational nature and passion of Kumon Instructors and staff. The elements extending from the number 60 represents the spreading of knowledge throughout the world.
Commenting on this occasion, Mr. Takaya Kitanishi, Managing Director, Kumon India Education says, “2018 marks the 60th Anniversary of Kumon globally, while in India we are presently in the 13th year of our operations. Going forward, Kumon will try to be rooted in the Indian society and contribute to developing children’s ability and willingness to learn for many more years to come. Through the Kumon method, we would like as many children as possible to experience the joy of learning Math and English and to find their special potential.”
Pioneering as one of the largest after-school Maths and English enrichment programs globally, Kumon has expanded across different cities in India & Sri Lanka. While it is present in all the major Indian metros, Kumon’s focus now is more on the Indian hinterland, by targeting tier 2 and tier 3 cities. 2017 marked Kumon’s entry into 4 new Indian cities – Kochi, Trichy, Goa & Jaipur. By ‘broadening and deepening’, Kumon has seen a rapid growth specifically in the last 3 years, which it aims to sustain.
