The Kumon Paarl Study Centre originally opened in September 2006 and has recently been taken over by Yolande Beylefeld. The centre has previously operated from various locations in Paarl and recently moved to a more permanent location at the Monte Rosa building.
The centre is easily accessible from Main Road, and there is ample and safe parking on the premises. The centre is also located close to two popular coffee shops for parents to enjoy some refreshments. The Paarl Study Centre occupies 4 rooms in the building in order to facilitate the mathematics and English programmes and to accommodate early learners who may need more one on one attention.
The Kumon programmes cater for students of all ages and abilities and the age range of the students at the Kumon Paarl Study Centre is currently between 4 and 15 years. Early learners can be accommodated at the centre before the rest of the schools end for the day. This allows them to receive the necessary attention for their optimal development.
The Instructor is supported by one dedicated assistant who has worked at the centre for many years, and assists in guiding the students to develop and help them reach their maximum capabilities. The students value her support and encouragement tremendously.
My name is Yolande Beylefeld. I am a full time mom of three energetic children. I am a qualified foundation phase teacher with 14 years teaching experience from pre-primary until senior phase.
As a parent, my daughters were part of the Kumon programme in pre-primary school. I could see the advantage they gained from following the Kumon programme when they started primary school.
As a teacher I know what anxiety and low self-esteem a learner might experience if they fall behind from the rest of the system. At Kumon we discover each student’s unique potential and focus on what they can do in order to build their self-esteem and develop their skills – small yet powerful steps at a time.
One of the most rewarding parts of being an instructor is to witness the change student’s undergo from being initially anxious and unsure to being confident, hardworking and smart.
I am looking forward to being part of each student’s successes and enriching their holistic skills and development.

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.
