Our Philosophy and Mission

The Aurora SE. Kumon Center is part of Gurukul Incorporated, based in Illinois.

"Gurukul"means teacher's family. We will teach and treat each student as our own family member.

Our goal is to focus on academic achievement for children of all ages through reading, writing, and math skills using the Kumon Method of education.

The following anecdote sums up our educational philosophy:

A young man was picking up objects off the beach and tossing them out into the sea. A second man approached him, and saw that the objects were starfish.

"Why in the world are you throwing starfish into the water?"

"If the starfish are still on the beach when the tide goes out and the sun rises high in the sky, they will die," replied the young man.

"That's ridiculous. There are thousands of miles of beach and millions of starfish. You can't really believe that what you're doing could possibly make a difference!"

The young man picked up another starfish, paused thoughtfully, and remarked as he tossed it out into the waves, "It makes a difference to this one."

At Aurora SE. Kumon Center, it’s our mission to make a difference in the life of as many students as we can. We will strive to provide a safe and fun learning experience to enable the students to unleash their full potential, and make friends to build a stronger community.
