The Kumon Edenvale Study Centre initially opened in 1996, as the Instructor wanted a method by which to instil practical study skills for her own children. It soon became evident to her that there was a greater need for this method throughout the community.
The centre is situated across the road from the Van Riebeeck Mall and is easily accessible from Edenvale CBD and 6 surrounding primary schools. We cater for a variety of students from 5 years old to adulthood, as well as students with special needs. We are open for four afternoons a week (Mondays to Thursdays). Students attend centre on two afternoons a week for a 30 minute timeslot per subject. This enables all students to get individualised attention and support from our 10 fully trained assistants. Students, however, complete their Kumon worksheets on every day of the week.
There is a homework exchange table at the entrance to the centre where homework is checked and new homework issued. Students then move to the study area where they work and where concentration is nurtured and self-learning abilities are developed.
In our separate English section, our library contains a wide variety of books from the Kumon Recommended Reading List. We also have an Early Learner section overseen by a dedicated Early Learner assistant.
