About this centre

Free Enrolment available In-centre & Online Classes
The Constantia Park Study Centre operates from the well-established Constantia Park Suburb on the eastern side of Pretoria, and offers students both the Maths and English programmes. At Kumon Constantia Park we strive to instill in each child the desire to achieve their goals, as well as to develop perseverance, stamina and the skills needed to enable them to realise their own potential.

These unique and individualised programmes allow every child to become independent, advanced learners, with a positive attitude towards learning. Together with the development of invaluable life skills, your child will grow into a well-rounded, confident, problem solver.

Each child starts at a level equivalent to his/her own individual ability, where they will be able to enjoy learning and therefore maximise their potential. All the staff at the centre have been trained and apply themselves to motivating students and parents, ultimately allowing everyone to experience the great satisfaction of unlocking previously untapped potential!

We strongly believe that through Knowledge, Understanding, Motivation, Opportunities and Never Giving up, every child is capable of reaching their maximum potential.
My name is Tanya Makweche. In 2016 my daughter was assessed for her Grade 1 intake. When the results for the assessments came out the school told me that my child was underdeveloped for her age and that she had special needs and would need to be in a special school. The school recommended that l take her to a speech and occupational therapist to be on par with children her age.
I knew that nothing was wrong with my child, but I did start looking for a program that would help my child develop and excel in school. I then came across Kumon in 2017 and enrolled her for both Maths and English. Within a short period of time l began to see changes both mentally and physically. Her love for Maths and English developed from that moment on. When l got the opportunity to work at the same Kumon centre my daughter attends, l was so humbled and privileged because I wanted to help other children who are being told they can't do it or that they are not good enough. It gave me so much purpose knowing I was helping them believe in themselves, develop their abilities, be more confident and independent.

Having worked as an assistant at a Kumon centre for the past few years, I am extremely excited about the new chapter and journey that lies ahead as a Kumon Instructor. There's an African proverb that says, ‘’It takes a village to raise a child”, I would be honoured to play a role in raising the children in my community. I am looking forward to helping students reach their full potential and for them to gain vast knowledge through the Kumon program. My hope is to impact as many students as possible and to spread the joy for learning far and wide.

From my daughter's progress and growth in doing the program, l know and believe that Kumon is the best gift a parent can give to their child.

Most Popular Questions

Students can start learning with Kumon from age two upwards. We currently have students as young as two years old studying with us, ranging all the way up to those about to go to university; Kumon helps children of any age and any ability. The sooner children begin, the earlier they can start developing skills to gain the greatest cumulative benefit; as soon as you feel your family is ready to make the commitment to long-term study, Kumon will be ready to help you achieve your goal.
Kumon offers much more than extra lessons and differs from traditional teaching in the classroom. Rather than preparing children for a particular test or assessment, Kumon empowers students to learn for themselves, through individualised instruction and carefully developed worksheets.

As well as developing key skills in maths and English, each Kumon student will work towards building their independent learning skills and confidence in their own abilities. This means that a Kumon student will not be dependent on – or limited by – the skills and knowledge of others.
Kumon is a self-learning programme with each student receiving regular support from their Instructor. The carefully developed worksheets teach students how to find the answer for themselves, whilst their Instructor offers guidance when necessary. The key role of each Kumon Instructor is to observe their students working, either in the centre or their online class, making sure that work is set at the right level and that they are developing at the right pace.
Both, and every child in between. This is because of our individualised approach to education, which always asks the question: "What is best for this individual child?" Following a diagnostic test, a study plan is set to develop the ability of the child and to progress them beyond the Kumon International Standard (an international approximation of their school level) regardless of their starting point. Kumon welcomes students with special educational needs, gifted and talented children, and all those who believe they can achieve more and fulfil their potential.
As a global programme, Kumon does not follow a school curriculum, but rather is complementary to curricula across the world. The primary aim of the Kumon Method is to develop independent learning skills. These independent learning skills enhance the students’ performance right across the school curriculum. Kumon operates at exactly the right level for each student – regardless of their age – ensuring that work set extends and develops their skills, confidence and ability.
