About this centre

During the last eighteen years of the existence of the Vereeniging Study Centre, it has been most rewarding to see many children excel in their Math and English abilities. We have observed the development of positive attitudes towards learning and also delightful personality changes, with great satisfaction.

Our ethos has always been to maintain a friendly, relaxed learning atmosphere in our centre.

Two of our assistants are B.Ed. graduates in Early Childhood Development and Foundation Phase education and have been working in the centre for seventeen  and ten years respectively.

We firmly believe that the earlier a child starts to study with Kumon, the better. A number of our “early starters” are now in Gr. 3 and 4 and are able to tackle Gr. 7 work. Others who have been with us for a number of years, are studying work that is way above their school grade level and are leaders in their respective classes. Our high school students are ever grateful for the “jump start“ that they received through their Kumon study.

Our spacious shaded parking area allows for a comfortable wait while the children are busy with their Kumon activities.
My first profession was that of engineering. It was because I decided to home school my own children, that my interest in supporting learners came about.

Therefore, I studied for a B.Ed. degree in education and became an educator, teaching senior phase mechanical technology and maths for junior secondary school learners.

As an educator I realised that a lack in number concept and basic mathematical skills was the main reason for learners struggling with maths in high school.

I also became aware that the reason learners often did not interpret the questions of test correctly, was a lack of the ability to read with comprehension.

In my search for a programme that would address these problems, I came upon Kumon. I was so impressed by the Kumon philosophy that I joined the Kumon family!

I can speak of the effectiveness of Kumon as both a parent and an Instructor as my youngest son had a learning disability and Kumon successfully addressed this challenge.

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.
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.
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.
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.
