    Hi vidya,

    i think 20 mo is too young to start kumon. they have a test initially which the child takes and they decide the level to begin the course. my son started kumon at 4 and i find it quite helpful.
    the youngest child i have seen there is maybe 3 or so.
    you could check with the one at woodbridge ave for more details.

    take care
    R

    Aiyyoo do not even think of it now... Maybe after 3.6 years you can take LO for assessment. Till then maybe you can improve her motor skills by making her cut the paper w/ scissors; blocks ; puzzles ; play dough etc.. and can use flash cards a little later and can introduce alphabets/numbers; certain concepts like near/far; up down etc
