About this centre

In-centre & Online Classes
Welcome to the Nelspruit, West Acres Study Centre.

This Centre was established in 2016. The Centre operates from the Nelacres Shopping Centre, which is well situated close to a number of schools and many other afterschool activities in Nelspruit. It provides safe parking and a neat, welcoming and child-friendly environment.

The Centre includes a dedicated learning area for pre-school children and a small Kumon library where students can read quietly, separate from the main learning area. The Centre also offers online (Zoom) classes for those who prefer to attend an online class rather than attend Centre physically.

Instructor Cailin Clarke, along with her fully trained staff, instructs both Kumon Mathematics and English to all ages, from two years old to adults. The team strives to develop the ability of each student, by discovering their potential and using careful planning and purposeful instruction of the Kumon Method to build on this. The team are sure to make your child’s Kumon experience an enjoyable one, as they do their worksheets, number boards, read exciting books from the Kumon library and much more! They aim for students to leave the Centre feeling motivated and proud.

Cailin and her team would like to warmly welcome your family to their Kumon family.
My name is Cailin Clarke, and I would briefly like to introduce myself. I started my Kumon journey as an assistant in the Nelspruit, West Acres Study Centre. Working as an assistant gave me the opportunity to see the Kumon Method in action and the amazing impact it has on students. I got to experience first-hand how it helps students reach their full potential and how they soon grow into driven, confident self-learners who excel in every part of their school careers, and I wanted to have a part in this. As a result, without hesitation, I took over as the Instructor when the opportunity arose.

The Kumon Method is not just an academic programme but a “life-skills” programme too and this is what I love about it. The skills our students learn at the Centre will not only help them in Mathematics and English but in all their subjects and in their lives.

As a Kumon Instructor I believe that running a successful Kumon Centre depends upon open, honest, and frequent communication! This is something I passionately strive to do with my students, parents, and staff. Continuous learning and growing is also part of my Kumon belief and journey, so I regularly attend our regional training, seminars and conferences to keep up to date with new ways to instruct and successfully apply the Kumon Method.

I am looking forward to hearing from you, and getting to know you and your child!

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.
