About this centre

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 Mariska Roux, and my journey with Kumon started in 2002. I was a fourth grader in a good Afrikaans primary school, struggling to find a connection with Maths & English.

I first started the Maths Program on level 3A71, with an introduction to +1; I found my feet very quickly and took well to the structure and discipline of the daily study. Shortly thereafter my parents also enrolled me onto the English Program. As with most students there were some bad days when I didn’t feel like doing Kumon. However, the moment I realized the benefit of the program not only academically but also for life, I became self-driven. In 2007 in my Grade 9 year I completed the English Program, and in 2010 I completed the Maths Program, just before my Matric year really took off.

Being a Kumon Double Completer wasn’t only about the Maths & English. I was asked to attend several awards ceremonies as a speaker, something which is normally totally out of my comfort zone. Today, more than ever, I realize the value of the life skills Kumon taught me. Currently I am studying Industrial Engineering part time through UNISA, and have both the confidence and courage to undertake this challenge.

I am extremely excited about the next chapter in my Kumon journey, being, a Kumon Instructor at Constantia Park. After working as an assistant in several centres I have gained precious experience working hands on with students, assistants and Instructors alike. I am looking forward to bringing a different understanding, knowledge and appreciation for the Kumon program, being very passionate about the impact that this program will have on every student.

In one of the speeches I gave at a Kumon awards ceremony, I said that Kumon is:
N-never giving up,
and I still believe that this is the essence of it for me.

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.
