My name is Lorné Golden. I studied Drama at Rhodes University, Grahamstown. It was during my drama studies that I realised that I enjoyed working with children; not in a traditional classroom situation but guiding them to develop through experiential learning.
When I joined Kumon as a staff member in 2010, Kumon gave me the opportunity to develop children by working with them on an individual basis. I came to understand that each child truly has infinite potential and that the Kumon method serves as a catalyst to unlock that potential.
In my time at Kumon I have worked as an Area Manager where I worked directly with centres and was able to observe many, many students. I also worked with Instructors to find ways of developing each child according to their individual ability.
When I worked in the Cape Town Branch, I ran Rondebosch, the company-owned centre for two years, which gave me experience as an Instructor and made me realise how much fun it is to work with children! I found great fulfilment in being part of their nurturing.
In 2015, I was promoted to Branch Leader in Johannesburg. This role gave me a greater overview of Kumon centres and the development of students.
By opening my own Kumon Centre I have a more direct impact on each child's growth and can go on a journey with each family, as a family, in a joint venture towards completion of the programmes.
I look forward to being part your child's Kumon journey.
