About this centre

In-centre Classes & Messaging support
The Elarduspark Centre welcomes children of all ages and abilities with a desire to reach their full potential. Currently the youngest learner is three years old, and the oldest eighteen. Me and a team of six friendly instructors help to keep the students motivated and ensure their individual needs are catered for as they develop through the program.  It is easy to attend the centre due to a safe surroundings in a class at the Elarduspark Primary School, near all the after school activities.
My name is Annetjie Marais and I have been a Kumon Instructor since the start of 1996. I am proud to say that we’ve helped hundreds of students to develop their abilities, not only Maths and English skills, but also life skills. We nurtured nine completers. It is a role I thoroughly enjoy, as I love working with children. I find it very fulfilling to help develop them at their own pace. I love to contribute by giving the children the opportunity to achieve good study skills and improve their English and Maths with the Kumon program. My observations and experience convinced me of the power of practical learning principles, such as building a solid foundation, giving praise and encouragement with sufficient practice and repetition. Maths is the one subject where the foundation needs to be corrected, else subsequent steps become too difficult.  Children today need confidence in themselves, and here they can experience it in a positive light for themselves. There is no need ever to have a feeling of inferiority or failure. The student is allowed to master each phase at a his own pace before progressing to the next phase, which enhances a feeling of self-confidence. As a parent and as a professional person, I have not only seen the benefits of this in my own children, but also in many children who have reached their highest potential.

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.
