Kumon Philippines Opens its first Branch Office In Cebu
Kumon Philippines Inc. (KPI) inaugurated its first branch office located at Asiatown IT Park in Cebu City on June 20. The opening ceremony, which included a ribbon cutting and blessing of the workplace, was graced by the Kumon Institute of Education and Kumon Global President Mr. Akio Tsunoda, by Kumon Asia and Oceania President Mr. Akira Hamanaka, and by KPI President Mr. Norihiro Nakamura.
By setting up a permanent branch office in Cebu, KPI opens it doors further to the rest of the Philippines. The office is part of Kumon’s expansion strategy in order to support more efficiently the development of its Centers in the Visayas, Mindanao, and Palawan. “In KPI, we declared that the most important support of a staff to the Instructor is to help in expanding the potential of their students, which in turn will make their Centers develop,” said Mr. Nakamura.
With Mr. Lawrence Laureta as the branch leader, the new Cebu branch office is geared towards strengthening further Kumon’s position in the Visayas-Mindanao-Palawan regions as the leading supplementary education provider in the world. “This branch office will be a place where continuous learning and pursuit of further improvement will take place,” said Lawrence. “Our office shall be open for all of our Instructors to gather and collaboratively think of ways on how to refine our instructions, communication, and Center management for the benefit of all our Kumon students.”
The KPI Cebu branch office is located at the 7th Floor, TGU Tower, Asiatown IT Park, Lahug, Cebu City. You may contact them through their landline at (032) 236 – 1307 or through fax at (032) 236 – 0231.
