Seeing your child succeed can provide inspiration for almost any parent. In Anil Kini's case, that success inspired him to open his own Kumon franchise in Lone Tree.
According to a news release, Kini spent more than two decades in an IT career that afforded him the opportunity to see many parts of the world and engage with many cultures and nationalities. However, Kini said he never felt completely fulfilled and believed that the only path to reaching his true potential was entrepreneurship.
When he decided it was time to become his own boss, Kini was drawn to the Kumon franchise because he had witnessed his 12-year-old son's progression while attending math and reading programs at Kumon.
“I fell in love with Kumon after seeing my son Aariv's personal and academic growth,” Kini said in a news release. “I witnessed firsthand how the Kumon method fosters a love for learning, helps to develop aptitude, communication skills, discipline, a strong work ethic and self-confidence, along with helping students advance academicall and personally.”
Kini said he believes the biggest gift of Kumon for his family was the self-learning ability he saw his son adapt.
Kumon is an after-school math and reading enrichment program that unlocks the potential of children so they can achieve more on their own, the release says. The learning program focuses on instilling qualities of academic independence, confidence and the ability to study beyond grade level, according to the release.
Kini said that although the program is centered around math and reading, it is more than that. It also fosters personal growth in other aspects of a student's life, Kini said in the release.
The new Kumon center was set to open Aug. 1 in Lone Tree. The address of the center is 9500 Heritage Hills Circe, Suite 400, Lone Tree. Learn more about Kumon programs at www.kumon.com.
