At Kumon Sunninghill, our aim is to discover each and every child’s potential and to develop them to their maximum, which is infinite. Our approach for each child is unique. By closely observing each student, we are able to develop their understanding, work skills and attitude through intentional instruction. We know that each child develops differently and at their own pace, so we tailor each journey according to their specific needs. Kumon is a wonderful programme that strikes the balance of not overexerting your child but still adding a challenge to keep them engaged. At Sunninghill, we don’t just look at helping your child improve their school grades but helping them grow into sustainable self-learners through our holistic approach. Each worksheet they complete allows them to experience the joy of self-learning and advancing on their own. Imagine how wonderful it would be for your child to confidently take on their schoolwork and give it their best willingly because they have the confidence to try.

We encourage students to continue with the programme beyond their grade-level. This means that your child will start learning how to do work that they would normally only begin doing in higher grades at school. This provides children with booming confidence to start a new year at school with an “I can do it” attitude because they have already been exposed to the work. Not only does this positively influence their grades, but they also have a more positive attitude towards school because they don't feel lost with difficult concepts.

On behalf of the whole Sunninghill team, Celeste Schepers (Office Centre Instructor), Chrisna Erasmus (National Instructor Coordinator) and Natasha Moodley (National Human Capital Development and Instruction Manager), we would like you to know that whether your child is as young as two years old, or, as an adult you are interested in becoming a Kumon student, we will welcome you with open arms as Kumon has the ability to develop anyone as long as they are willing to give it a try. Each person’s journey is our passion and our priority.

In the brave new world of the Covid-19 pandemic, we would like to reassure you that we are running a ‘virtual centre’ via the Zoom application. This gives your child/ren the chance to complete their daily study online, talking through Zoom, alongside other students from the centre. It is a friendly and supportive environment, like the centre, where we are able to instruct and guide students when necessary. Discussion and interaction does also take place between students. This encourages regular daily study as well as motivates the students when they see their classmates invested in their studies.
 

My name is Celeste Schepers and I am the Office Centre Instructor at Kumon Sunninghill Study Centre.

I have a Master’s degree in Microbiology and have five years’ experience in private tutoring and teaching English as a foreign language. When teaching in Thailand, I had the amazing opportunity to work with Grades 1-3 as well as with academically challenged students. My training taught me to be very dynamic and adaptable. Despite the language barrier, I learnt how to motivate my students to have fun and even become self-learners.

Working at Kumon has further transformed the way I think. By working through the Kumon Programme myself, I have learnt to be more efficient and have come to appreciate each small step introduced in the worksheets because I know it will help me grow as a person. I also continue to learn from each child in the Centre as each personality has something new to offer. This, along with my phenomenal journey with the Kumon team, makes that I wake up every day excited about each child’s development and watching their confidence grow.

It is an honour to be a part of this family.

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.
