About this centre

Did you know, you can now study Kumon using digital worksheets? This study centre is proud to offer KUMON CONNECT. Click here for more details.

The Tokai Centre opened in 1997 under the initial instruction of Ingrid Moore, and has been running for 25 years. We have recently moved to a commercial business park where we continue to foster a calm and safe learning environment for students.

We offer both English and Mathematics as well as Kumon Connect, which is our online digital study platform.

Our students range in age from pre-schoolers to teenagers, as the flexible nature of the Kumon Programme allows it to be individualised to meet the learning needs of students across all ages and abilities by working on the ‘just right level.’
Younger students are accommodated in a separate classroom to older students, in order to support different learning needs.

We have a separate reading area with a variety of books, to encourage and peak interest in reading from a young age.

The Instructor, Nikki, and a dedicated team of four well-trained, energetic and dynamic assistants, work together to provide an environment of study that encourages within each individual student a desire to learn and an enjoyment of learning! The development of these skills is necessary for success in the higher levels of English and Maths – allowing students to achieve and progress beyond grade level.

We are open five days a week and offer the flexibility of attending the centre twice a week on any of these days, as well as our online classes. We have a drop-and-go system as well as wheelchair access, should it be needed.

We encourage you to come and visit our centre, before enrolling so that you can see for yourself what we have on offer!

About the Instructor

My name is Nikki Moore and I am the Instructor at the Tokai Centre. 

I am from a Special Educational Needs (SEN) background and taught both primary and secondary school students in South Africa, before heading the United Kingdom to teach English to secondary school students in England.
I bring with me over twenty years of diverse teaching experience, working with students of varying ages and abilities.
I have also worked with children and adolescents of all ages through ChildLine UK and SAPS Trauma Counselling in SA, from all backgrounds and who have dealt with challenging experiences, and through this have further developed my understanding and passion for working with children.

I took a teaching sabbatical and worked in the corporate sector for ten years before returning to my number one area of passion…teaching!

I have worked with Kumon South Africa at different points over the years, and owned a centre many years ago before heading to the United Kingdom.
I am proud to continue the legacy of my late mother (Ingrid Moore) at this centre, and to build on this, bringing my own life-time enthusiasm for nurturing young minds and realising the potential of students through individualised learning, development and progression at their own pace.

Kumon allows me to be a mentor rather than a teacher, and in so doing, I am able to build strong relationships with all my students. This is testament to the fantastic programme and opportunities students are able to encounter; allowing them to succeed, build confidence and develop self-learning skills for life.

As a Kumon Instructor, I am continuously learning and growing and there is nothing more rewarding than students who are able to realise their own potential, and watching the great joy it brings them!

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.
