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 Hlengiwe Ndlovu, 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.
Hlengiwe and her team would like to warmly welcome your family to their Kumon family.
My name is Hlengiwe known to many as Lindah Ndlovu. I was introduced to Kumon by a former boss whom I've worked for as a personal assistant in a different business. She then invited me to come and work for her at Penryn Kumon. I then developed a passion to work with children. As an assistant I learned how Kumon methods work to develop each student to reach their full potential. They became independent workers, focused and confident through their daily studies. I was then promoted to be the head assistant and got to be trained to know more about Kumon.
Ever since then I never looked back, I had the opportunity to work with different instructors in the past 20 yrs. I have had the privilege to work with both young students and adult students and as Toru Kumon says: “every day is a learning day” I have never stopped learning from each of these students.
When the opportunity came for me to be the Instructor of Kumon Nelspruit-Westacres I grabbed it with confidence and excitement. I believe running a successful centre depends upon honesty, commitment, respect and open communication between my students, parents and team. It will give me great pleasure seeing the students leaving our centre with confidence and a big smile on their faces, knowing they did their best today. I'm looking forward to seeing and getting to know each student and family who will entre my centre.

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.
