About this centre

Free Enrolment available In-centre & Online Classes
The centre opened in 1998 and offers the Kumon Maths and English programmes, which are for all ages and abilities. The current students’ ages range from four to eighteen years old. The centre is situated in a very central  location, just off  Parklands Main Road,  at 12 Redcliffe Road, on the corner of Redcliffe Close and Redcliffe Road.

Students complete individually-set daily work at home, and attend class at the centre twice a week, for 30 – 45 minutes per subject. Students can come to class at a time that suits them between 14h15 and 18h00.

In the centre, there are separate areas for pre-school learners, Maths students, and English students . Currently, the Bloubergrandt Study Centre has a team of 8 well-trained assistants who are friendly and approachable, and are available to aid students’ development.

Supplementary class activities support students’ learning. Reading is encouraged. Staff at the centre provide instruction, observe students, introduce new work, test progress and give support, praise and feedback.

The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study. In order to recognise academic ability, the centre holds an annual awards ceremony to reward those who are working ahead of their school grade level.

The centre welcomes students of all ages and abilities, and allows them to pursue their full potential  by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
My name is Babette Malan. I have been a Kumon Instructor for over twenty-one years and I am extremely enthusiastic about the Kumon programmes because I see the progress that students make and their growing confidence at school.

After teaching at high school level for 7 years, I took a break to be at home with my children, but I was still keen to be involved in education. I then discovered Kumon.  I was particularly interested in the Kumon instruction method, which enables students to develop  their full potential by working through the programmes at an individualised pace. As a qualified teacher, it made sense to become a Kumon Instructor.

The Table View Study Centre welcomes children of all ages and abilities, whether they require further support to succeed academically or are seeking an additional challenge so they can fulfil their potential. I find that working with Kumon students aged 4 to 18, who come from a wide range of backgrounds and have varied educational abilities, continually improves my instruction.

I particularly like the fact that Kumon allows truly individualised study for each student. Individualised study gives them the time they need to cover a topic effectively, and master it before moving to the next level. During school holidays, daily Kumon work continues to reinforce learning so that knowledge and understanding are not lost by time off. My reward as an Instructor is seeing students completing work they did not think they were capable of, and watching their confidence grow as they become independent, mature learners.

As a parent of two Kumon students, I understand exactly what’s involved at home as well. When I opened my centre, I enrolled my daughter and son. They both worked on the programmes for many years, and their Kumon work ensured the development of their self-confidence and discipline. I can't deny that Kumon study requires effort and commitment from the student, the parents and the Instructor , but it is worth it! I believe that giving a child a good education is vital, particularly in this global economy, where children need access to opportunities and choices that will enable them to live a successful life.

Each student is important to me. I care not only about their academic advancement, but about their overall wellbeing. My greatest achievements are enabling my students to gain self-confidence, allowing them to become independent self-learners and helping them to build strong study habits. I hope that the Table View Study Centre will continue to provide a useful resource for children in the local community.

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.
