About this centre

In-centre Classes & Messaging support
The Wilropark study centre opened its doors in 2015.

The study centre is a relaxed, friendly and safe environment where children can learn and develop a positive attitude towards their studies.  Children of all ages and abilities are welcome and will be able to learn and develop at the centre. Currently the youngest student is four years old, and the oldest is sixteen.

With four very reliant assistants, the centre is able to have a low student/staff ratio which makes it possible to give students the necessary attention they need to develop to the best of their abilities. The Kumon development strategy has a long-term focus which provides children with the self-assurance to take their learning into their own hands, increasing their motivation to succeed.

Your child will visit the centre twice a week, Mondays and Thursdays or Tuesdays and Fridays from 13:30 to 17:45. In addition to these centre days the student will study an appropriate amount of work at home on a daily basis. The study centre is ideally situated with easy accessibility and a short traveling distance to quite a number of schools (pre, primary and secondary) in the area. 
Hi, I am Erika Viljoen the Instructor of the Wilropark Study Centre.

I first came across Kumon 17 years ago.  My sister’s eldest son entered a Kumon competition with their launch into South Africa and won a year’s free Kumon tuition. He completed up to level G. His younger brother also joined and completed up to level F. Since then I have always been aware of Kumon around me. Four years ago I started as an assistant at the Roodekrans Study Centre.

I have a deep rooted passion for educating children.  I have worked at a pre-school for a few years and enjoyed it immensely. I was fortunate to be a stay at home mum to my two children and I have created an environment for them to develop to the best of their ability. I have also developed a strength in working with older children.

The excellent Kumon programme coupled with my experience has made it possible for me to give back to the community and I have seen the astonishing results. I love watching the transformation of my new students who are afraid and lack confidence when they first join the study centre to the beaming stars they become proudly saying, “I can do Maths!” or “I can really read!”

Our centre currently boasts a few students studying above their grade level in Maths and English and this has not only improved their confidence at school but has also made it easier for the parents to oversee their work as they have become independent learners.

My team and I together have 11 years’ experience working with children on the Kumon programme and I am committed to continually developing my Kumon knowledge to assist and develop my students to their full potential.

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.
