With over 1 million children trained worldwide, our UCMAS Learning Centers serve a real need to boost child development and brainpower in kids aged 5 to 13 by offering mental math and abacus training. The UCMAS abacus mental math program is designed to inculcate a love for learning in children. By understanding math concepts through abacus beads, the engagement gives the ability for children to adapt to different learning styles that activate both the creative and logical sides of the brain. As a global organization, UCMAS is adeptly positioned to integrate eastern philosophies and western techniques with local trends in child development and training to adapt educational methods to best benefit the students.

The education sector and children's related services are relatively immune to economic slow-down. Parents are always in need of quality education service providers, and thus education franchises will always remain in demand.
