The Kumon Worcester Study Centre opened its doors in October 2003 and currently operates from Worcester Primary School. It is centrally located and can be accessed easily by learners from any school in and around Worcester. There is ample parking that is secure for dropping off and collecting students.
The Worcester Study Centre offers a professional, caring and friendly environment in which students can do their Kumon studies. The centre team strives to provide a positive experience for each of the students during their time in centre. The team supports the students in the development of excellent study habits and develops them towards independent learning. The atmosphere in the centre is welcoming and invites students to become part of the Kumon Worcester family.
The centre caters for students from the age of 2 years old to adults who would like to study the maths and English programmes. The Kumon programmes also benefit the development of skills in early and young learners, as well as students of varying abilities.
An enthusiastic and supportive assistant aids the Instructor in developing each student fully.
I am Janéne Janse van Rensburg. I opened the Worcester Study Centre in October 2003 to help my own daughter. At first, the centre started around our dining room table, but as the numbers increased, I had to move and found a home for my centre at Worcester Primary School. Since then, I have had the privilege of developing many students through the Kumon maths and English programmes.
I am a qualified remedial teacher and have worked with learners with special educational needs since 1989. I feel that I can measure my own success by what each student achieves in my centre … their success is my success. I further believe that each child’s potential should be developed fully so that they can fulfil their place in society.
Because I believe that each student is an achiever, I strive to develop each student’s ability to the maximum. I love working with students and enjoy studying and implementing the methodology. I love new challenges and each student provides me with great learning opportunities.
My background in remedial teaching has played a major role in my ability to identify students’ needs and to adjust my instruction accordingly in order to develop each student’s full potential.
The Kumon maths and English programmes taught my children perseverance, to be honest with themselves and to complete the task at hand, and that the biggest reward comes from experiencing that AHA moment when they grasp a new concept. This also filtered through to their school work and their daily responsibilities.
My role as parent was to take an interest in their work, to motivate them continuously, to ensure that they work with discipline and that they have good study routines.

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.
