About this centre

The Langebaan Centre opened in 1999, initially operating from Air Force Base, Langebaanweg. The centre moved from Langebaanweg to Langebaan in 2001.

Our activities are based in the industrial area of Langebaan and at a Child Development Centre in Long Acres, just to the north of Langebaan. The Langebaan North centre caters for pre-schoolers as well as school going children wheeras the Langebaan centre mainly focuses on school going children.

Pre-school learners enjoy individualised exposure to Kumon of between 20 and 40 minutes per subject twice a week. In addition students study and practice an appropriate amount of work at home on a daily basis.

The centre is a parent-free zone thereby allowing the students to work in an environment without distractions. Ample parking and secure venues provide an ideal waiting facility for parents. The unique Kumon method allows for the pursuit of each child’s potential and the development of their ability and independence.

Following an Enrolment Interview, your child will start on the programmes at an individually set starting point, laying a solid foundation for effective learning. Their progress through the programmes will be tailored to their individual needs, ensuring your child continues to grow and achieve.

Students at the centre range in age from three years to 18 years. My well-trained team of dedicated assistants help me to support the students on class days. Outside of the study sessions, I keep parents fully informed of their children's progress and answer any queries they may have during the week. At my centres no achievement goes unnoticed. I believe in positive daily feedback and motivation and also have a yearly Achievers’ Ceremony at which student achievements are celebrated.

With unfailing parental support, your child will develop invaluable study skills and grow in confidence as they become an independent learner.

Kumon’s long-term focus provides children with the self-assurance to take their learning into their own hands, increasing their motivation to succeed.
My name is Fanie Wagener and I have been a Kumon Instructor for over fifteen years. I was introduced to Kumon by the previous Instructor and immediately saw the benefits of the programmes for all children. I enjoy working with children from pre-school age to high school level. I am a parent of a boy and girl and, being a Kumon parent myself, understand the importance of giving children the opportunity to develop fully.

I had a career in finance and after 21 years decided to pursue the development of children. From being a senior accountant in the Defence Force, I wanted to use my skills and experience to help individual children pursue and achieve their potential. I strongly believe that the exposure we give children to Maths and English gives them confidence to see their future as a positive challenge. I am extremely enthusiastic about the Kumon programmes, because I see the progress that students make, the development of their learning skills and their growing confidence at school, with the knowledge that it can never be taken away from them.  I find this very fulfilling.

One of the most rewarding parts of my role as a Kumon Instructor is witnessing how individuals, however different they may be, become fluent at something previously perceived to be too difficult and they can eventually do work above their curriculum level. Not only do I participate in the growth of students, but, as an individual, my experience with other Kumon Instructors and the numerous Kumon training courses I have attended, have contributed immensely towards my own development and understanding of individuals.

I firmly believe that my contributions towards children’s development will make a difference in the lives of these individuals and the community, not only now, but for years to come.

Most Popular Questions

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.
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.
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.
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.
