About this centre

The Kumon Panorama Study Centre opened in August 2000.

The study centre has a relaxed and friendly environment where students of all ages and abilities can learn and develop a positive attitude towards study.

Students may enrol from the age of 4 years. Many students continue with their Kumon studies for several years, as the programmes support learning up to matric level (English) and beyond (Maths). A former Panorama student attained 2nd place in the matric results for the whole of South Africa. He enrolled at the Panorama Study Centre in Grade R and completed both the Maths and English programmes by Grade 10.

The centre has an area specifically for younger students, which has a low student/staff ratio. This enables staff to focus on their needs and get them off to a flying start at Kumon and at school.

After completing a Kumon assessment, your child will begin on the unique Maths and/or English programme/s at an individually set starting point, providing a solid foundation for effective learning.

As a Kumon student, your child will develop invaluable study skills towards become an independent learner. In addition to studying an appropriate amount of work at home on a daily basis, your child will attend the Kumon centre twice a week. Kumon’s long-term focus provides children with the self-assurance to take their learning into their own hands, increasing their motivation to succeed.

The centre has enthusiastic and supportive assistants; of whom several have worked at the centre for many years.
My name is Leana Fourie and I have been a Kumon Instructor since August 2000. I enjoy working with children from pre-school age to high school level. I am the mother of three daughters. I have been passionate about all aspects of education for many years and keep myself informed on educational issues worldwide.

I am a qualified and experienced remedial teacher. I taught in primary, junior, secondary and special needs schools, as well as in the college sector for several years, and received a Western Cape Education “Innovation Award” for the development of a bridging course for college students. I wanted to use my skills and experience to help individual children pursue and achieve their potential. I am extremely enthusiastic about the Kumon programmes, as I see the progress that students make, the development of their learning skills and their growing confidence at school. I find it very fulfilling to nurture and encourage every child's development into an independent individual who is able to learn for themselves and is confident to tackle new challenges.

I am fortunate to have experienced several opportunities to learn and to share ideas with fellow Kumon Instructors at international Kumon conferences and to contribute ideas as a member of Kumon South Africa’s Instructor Advisory Committee.

One of the most rewarding parts of my role as a Kumon Instructor is witnessing the change students undergo from being timid and unsure when they first come to class, to being confident in what they are doing and fluent in their work. A high percentage of my students are working several years ahead of the international curriculum standard. I have also had the privilege to nurture a number of my students to completion of the entire Kumon Maths and English programmes.

Students at the centre range in age from four years old to adults. My well-trained team of dedicated assistants help me to support the students on centre 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.

I am very proud of the fact that many parents enrol siblings after they see the success of their older children on the programmes, and also recommend the centre to their friends and colleagues. It gives me great pleasure to meet up with ex-students who return to the centre to tell me about their success in exams and their plans for their future careers.

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 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.
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.
