The Kumon Kenridge Centre opened its doors in 2022.
The Centre is located opposite Kenridge Primary School and provides a serene and welcoming environment for children of all ages and abilities. A friendly atmosphere and ample parking initiates an impactful learning setting that provides a sense of achievement.
There is a small shopping Centre with a lovely coffee shop nearby where parents can wait while their children are busy.
A secure waiting area for children ensures their safety whilst they await the arrival of their parent/guardian.
We are able to accommodate learners as young as 4 years old for both our English and Math programmes. Learners will attend class twice a week and receive individually set work to complete at home. In order to accommodate learners with busier schedules, we do offer online classes as well.
Close cooperation with parents empowers both parents and our Centre team to observe individual progress which ensures each learner reaching their full potential.
We have our own (growing) Kumon Recommended Reading list library available for students to take advantage of and nurture a love for reading.
My name is Sumari Viljoen and I am the proud owner of Kumon Kenridge.
I completed my BA Humanities degree in English and Psychology and Post Graduate Certificate in Education at Stellenbosch University. I have taught both primary and high school learners. These experiences have made me aware of the need for more individual learning approaches to be implemented.
Every child is unique and deserves an equal opportunity to become the best possible version of themselves. Not only will Kumon help learners academically but self-discipline and self-learning are skills that develop strong and independent learners and adults. The most rewarding element of Kumon is to see the feeling of accomplishment and confidence generated as learners progress.
I hope that my love for learning and patience will create a sense of belonging for each learner and enable them to become something great.
“Everyone has inside them a piece of good news. The good news is you don’t know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is.”
Let Kumon Kenridge help you find that piece of good news.

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.
