About this centre

The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.

King Williams Town had a four year break without a Kumon Centre but 2016 saw the opening of this vibrant centre to serve children in and around the city.

The King Williams Town Kumon Centre is situated in the centre of town with great exposure to the public. Our centre runs alongside businesses in a quiet, secure and neat unit conducive to learning. The centre is easily accessible by public transport, has ample parking and as it is centrally situated it allows for parents to run errands and shop at nearby retail outlets while children attend centre.

Students have a choice of attending either of the two sets of days: Tuesday and Friday or Wednesday and Saturday.
Tata Nelson Mandela once said “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

I share his sentiment in that education is a sure tool to free any human being. I am passionate about education, having completed postgraduate studies in development management.

When my daughter started experiencing difficulties at school, naturally I looked for means and ways to assist her. Having tried other programmes I eventually decided to enrol her at a Kumon Centre which proved to be exactly what we needed. I saw first-hand the benefits of the program as well as the confidence with which my child now faced challenging subjects. This inspired me to investigate the programme and eventually to make the decision to become an Instructor.

My undergraduate studies were towards a commerce degree which opened the employment door for me. Mine has been a diverse employment experience which gave me an opportunity to identify and utilise my strengths. I started my career in research in the public sector and later worked with international agencies supporting small business development. I spent time in the corporate world working in transformation and specifically towards integration of emerging businesses into mainstream trade. What I enjoyed most in all my roles was playing the supporting role to businesses and mentoring/coaching entrepreneurs to reach their goals.

I have worked with younger people in a mentoring and coaching role for a number of Non-profits. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing a young person reach their goals and as a result, allowing themselves to dream bigger, brighter dreams for their future.

This is precisely what I hope I can do for your child at the King Williams Town Kumon Centre; through this proven method I hope to help them reach and surpass their goals to realise their full potential. I believe I have the skills and motivation to help your child become an independent self-learner.

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 but each student receives 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, 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.
