The Modderfontein Kumon Study Centre is based in the heart of Modderfontein, at 40 High Street, opposite the Okes Coffee Shop. We have two subjects to offer students: Kumon Maths and English. There is a reading library in the Centre offering books from the Kumon Recommended Reading list, and students are able to relax on the comfy cushions and to enjoy reading one of the good books. We also have a dedicated early learner section for our littlest students
Our Centre caters for all ages and abilities. We aim to develop the potential of EVERY student, growing them into becoming independent thinkers. The Kumon Programmes build on the academic ability of our students, but more importantly, focuses on developing life-skills. When faced with a challenge, Kumon students do not give up, but rather believe that: “I can do this”. They take on any challenges that they face in life to the best of their ability and are confident in doing so, being satisfied with their results but still eager to strive for more.
In a nutshell, our aim is to create a place where students are happy, parents are relaxed and we continuously learn how to ensure that at the end of each lesson, our students have a sparkle in their eyes and a smile on their face, and they go out into the world knowing that: “I can do it”.
My name is Sue Fuller. I am a mother to three lovely children who are all grown-up. My first encounter with Kumon was almost 30 years ago, when my middle child was three-years-old and in preschool. He was part of the programme for three years until he went to Grade 1. My son still has great mental calculation abilities 30 years later, and all through his school years was able to work independently. I wish to provide this opportunity to other students, and to nurture their full potential.
As a Kumon Instructor, I now have the opportunity to nurture young people to become focused and smarter, through working on a level that is just right for them. The vision I have for my Centre is to develop life skills within young people. Not only will the students be constantly learning, but I too will continue to learn - you are never too old to learn! I want to be a big part of developing self-learners, who also become independent thinkers.

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.
"The Kumon App gave him the opportunity to interact with his study records and at the age of 7 our child was setting daily goals for himself and really thinking hard about how he could be better tomorrow than what he was today." - Jackie (Grayson's mom)
