The City Bowl Centre is one of the three founding Kumon centres in the Western Cape. It opened its doors in July 1992 and has gone on to nurture and support many hundreds of happy and successful students. After 20 years at St Cyprian’s School, the centre moved to its current location at Jan van Riebeeck Primary School which is more central for easier access as well as having plenty of parking available. It is also located on a main bus route. Parents often use the opportunity of popping into The Lifestyle Centre next door to do their shopping or have a quick cup of coffee while their children are hard at work at Kumon!
The students currently range from pre-school to middle school students who either attend city schools or who live in the city and its surrounds. The centre runs from a bright, quiet and air-conditioned classroom that makes it conducive to hard work and focused study.
Kumon enjoys the full support of the principal and academic staff of the school. The two friendly and helpful assistants, Liesel and Connie, are both qualified and highly experienced teachers who have been part of this centre for many years.
