KUMON is the world's most successful learning program for mathematics and English for children and young people.
The KUMON method does not only support in school, but is also an effective and long-term successful learning method. It enables your child to develop his or her abilities in the best possible way.
The first KUMON learning centre in Valais is located at Rue du Simplon 65 in Ardon. There are several parking spaces available and while you wait for your child to finish KUMON, you can have a coffee in the charming village or go shopping in Conthey, for example.
We look forward to welcoming you and experiencing this adventure with you!
My name is Tanja Müller and I am the mother of three boys who were born in 2012, 2014 and 2016. I am of Zurich origin but I have been living in Valais since 1993. I studied business economics in Sierre and am passionate about my professional activity in the field of human resources.
Since July 2018, after successfully completing the training in a Kumon centre with more than 300 students in Athens, Greece, I have been an instructor for the KUMON learning method. The aim of KUMON study programmes is to encourage each student to gain self-confidence and study independently, in order to tackle advanced level work in complete independence.
My role is to discover your child's potential and develop it to its maximum. This method not only develops maths and English abilities, but also gives your child feelings of self-confidence, independence, and resilience - to never give up and believe in themselves. These are important values that will accompany them throughout their life journey. I am looking forward to living these magical moments with your child and with you.

KUMON offers much more than tutoring and differs from traditional teaching in the classroom. Rather than preparing children for a particular test or assessment, KUMON empowers students to learn for themselves, through individualised instruction and carefully developed worksheets.
As well as developing key skills in maths and English, each KUMON student will work towards building their independent learning skills and confidence in their own abilities. This means that a Kumon student will not be dependent on – or limited by – the skills and knowledge of others.
Both, and every child in between. This is because of our individualised approach to education, which always asks the question: "What is best for this individual child?" Following a diagnostic test, a study plan is set to develop the ability of the child and to progress them beyond the KUMON International Standard (an international approximation of their school level) regardless of their starting point. KUMON welcomes students with special educational needs, gifted and talented children, and all those who believe they can achieve more and fulfil their potential.
Students can start learning with KUMON from age two upwards. We currently have students as young as two years old studying with us, ranging all the way up to those about to go to university; KUMON helps children of any age and any ability. The sooner children begin, the earlier they can start developing skills to gain the greatest cumulative benefit; as soon as you feel your family is ready to make the commitment to long-term study, KUMON will be ready to help you achieve your goal.
As a global programme, KUMON does not follow a school curriculum, but rather is complementary to curricula across the world. The primary aim of the KUMON Method is to develop independent learning skills. These independent learning skills enhance the students’ performance right across the school curriculum. KUMON operates at exactly the right level for each student – regardless of their age – ensuring that work set extends and develops their skills, confidence and ability.
KUMON is a self-learning programme but each student receives regular support from their Instructor. The carefully developed worksheets teach students how to find the answer for themselves, whilst their Instructor offers guidance when necessary. The key role of each KUMON Instructor is to observe their students working, making sure that work is set at the right level and that they are developing at the right pace.
Winston ist ein Junge von fünf Jahren, sehr fröhlich, voller Energie, freundlich und gesprächig. Er fing bei KUMON an, weil er lernen wollte, auf Englisch zu schreiben. Die Mutter bemerkte seine Freude am eigenständigen Lernen, als er versuchte, die Buchstaben aus Büchern abzuschreiben. Was ihm jedoch die größten Schwierigkeiten bereitete, war das Stillsitzen, und seine Aufmerksamkeitsspanne war sehr kurz.
Als Leo 5 Jahre alt war, bemerkten die Erzieher in seinem Kindergarten, dass er ein Händchen für Zahlen hatte. Seine Mutter beobachtete ebenfalls mathematischen Fähigkeiten bei Ihrem Sohn, deshalb brachten seine Eltern ihn zu KUMON.
Die 11-jährige Selin aus Frankfurt und ihre Mutter berichten von den Veränderungen, die KUMON bei Selin bewirkt haben. Unter anderem, wie sich die Angst vor Mathematik in den Wunsch, Mathematik zu studieren, gewandelt hat.
