Kumon to reopen in South Morang, VIC


Julie Donceva, Instructor of Kumon South Morang Education Centre, VIC

Kumon is returning to South Morang in Melbourne’s outer north, to help all local children develop their mathematics and reading ability.

The new Kumon South Morang Education Centre will be operated by Julie Donceva, a former school teacher who specialised in supporting children living with learning disabilities. Julie has lived locally in the area for nearly 30 years and her own children attend a nearby Kumon centre.

“My first contact with Kumon was over 12 years ago when I enrolled my three boys”, Julie says. “I witnessed first-hand the dramatic impact Kumon had on the educational improvement on each of them.”

The centre reopens on 2 April at a new venue, 2/1 Danaher Drive South Morang VIC 3752. Classes will run on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday evenings from 3pm to 7pm, and all day on Saturdays from 10am to 4pm.

Julie believes that families will greatly appreciate the centres’ flexible schedule and that Kumon will play a highly positive role for the local community.

“Kumon is one of the best academic investments that parents can provide for their children”, Julie says.

“Apart from gaining knowledge in English and mathematics, Kumon students develop the discipline of self-learning. Self-learning – trying to find the solution for the problem, correcting mistakes independently and learning from them – will be the main pillar that Kumon students use as a foundation for their academic life”.

Chloe builds confidence and comprehension ability through Kumon English


 Through studying the Kumon English programme all the way to completion, 11-year-old Chloe has developed a passion for reading, and the comprehension ability equivalent to that of a senior high school student.

Furthermore, Chloe’s achievements in Kumon English helped her to build strong self-confidence, something that she said she was lacking when she first started Kumon.

“When I first walked through the doors of Kumon, I was shy to show my abilities during tasks that I was given”, Chloe says. “But after settling in, I started to build confidence in myself, and develop strong study habits, solid reading comprehension skills, perseverance and the motivation for learning independently”.

Chloe believes that completion of Kumon English will be of great benefit to her in school and beyond.

“Kumon has provided me with all the solid fundamentals for my future endeavours, and will also help me through my school journey to experience ease and success”, she says.

Chloe also studies the Kumon Mathematics programme at a level that is five years ahead of her school grade. She is currently studying logarithms and calculus in her worksheets.

Kumon continues partnership with Athletics West throughout 2024


In both athletics and academics, achieving goals begins with grasping the basics. As such, Kumon Australia and New Zealand is proud to continue its support of Athletics West.

The ongoing partnership means that Kumon will support the 2024 Little Athletics Program for Schools (LAPS), which introduces school pupils in Perth to athletics through fun-based games and activities. Kumon will also be attending several Athletics West events throughout the year.

“We are proud to continue this partnership and to support young people in Western Australia to be the best versions of themselves, both on the track and in the classroom”, said Joanne Adam, Division Leader of Kumon WA.

Meet the new Instructor of Kumon Caroline Springs Education Centre!

Kumon Caroline Springs Education Centre, in Melbourne’s outer west, is now operating under the guidance of a new Instructor, Jatin Agarwal.

Jatin first discovered Kumon shortly after he migrated to Australia as a student in 2007. He worked as a Kumon centre assistant during this time.

“Being new to the country, I felt very lonely and disconnected to the community”, Jatin says. “It was then that I came across Kumon and started working as a centre assistant at a local Kumon centre. Helping kids nurture their potential gave me a sense of satisfaction and provided me with a sense of belonging and connection to the local community”.

Jatin would go on to complete his masters degree in microelectronics degree with a bachelors in electronics and communications engineering, and embark on 13-year career in the networking and communication industry as an engineer and architect. However, he never forgot about his time with Kumon.

When the previous Instructor of Kumon Caroline Springs decided to retire, Jatin saw this as the perfect opportunity for him to give back to his community.

“I am a first-generation migrant to Australia, like most of the local community at Caroline Springs”, Jatin says. “I connect to these families, and understand their journey and outlook towards education”.

“With its individualised structure, Kumon will help nurture every student’s maximum potential. It will provide them with the right foundation in mathematics and reading, and build self-discipline and focus in students”.

Kumon Caroline Springs has also relocated to a new venue at CS Hub Office 7, Level 1, 34 Commercial Road, Caroline Springs, VIC 3023. Classes run on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday evenings from 3:30pm to 7pm.

Through focusing on the basics in Kumon, Joshua develops confidence in mathematics and reading


Joshua with his Kumon certificate and medal in recognition of studying Mathematics and English at level that is one year ahead of his school grade.

Through his dedicated study of the Kumon Mathematics and English programmes, 10-year-old Joshua has gone from falling behind to making strong progress in class.

Joshua was enrolled into Kumon Mathematics and English in February 2022, when he was in Year 3. Now, he is in Year 5 at school and is an advanced student studying both programmes at a level equivalent to one year ahead of his school grade. Last year, Joshua also received an academic certificate from his school for demonstrating excellent skills and understanding in a mathematics test.

Joshua says there are many ways that Kumon is helping him, both in school and elsewhere.

“I help my mum work out sums when she needs me to”, he says. “In school, it is awesome when I already know the maths work before we start it in class. This helps me with my confidence”.

Joshua says he is considering becoming a tradesperson when he grows up. He believes that strong calculation ability is an important skill for his future.

Brigetta, Joshua’s mother, says Kumon’s structure and focus on the basics was of great benefit to her son.

“I think the Kumon programme took my child back to basics. Then it really solidified his learning as he moved through the levels”, Brigetta says. “It’s been really helpful for him because he’s grown in skill and confidence as he’s hit each milestone”.

Brigetta also says that his Kumon Instructor was able to individualise and tailor the programme around Joshua’s learning needs, which includes managing ADHD, dyscalculia, and dysgraphia. As Kumon is a home-based, daily study programme, Brigetta says while it is not easy and perseverance is required, Kumon’s benefits for students make it worthwhile.

“Give Kumon a good go”, she says. “It does take some serious perseverance from both parents and children, but your child will definitely reap the rewards later and gain confidence in their own abilities. It cements their learning at school and seeing Joshua’s face light up every time he passes a module or does well in a test at school is just so wonderful”.


Kumon – celebrating 40 years in Australia!


Throughout Kumon Australia and New Zealand’s 40-year history since our establishment in 1984, we have achieved many milestones. During this time, over one million children have relied on Kumon to develop essential mathematics and reading skills through studying Kumon worksheets. In September 2023, we achieved another milestone, with over 59,000 enrolments – our highest ever.

Furthermore, as of December 2023 we were proud to surpass 10,000 Kumon programme completers.  Each of these students has developed confidence, a daily study habit, self-learning skills, and a high level of mathematics and reading ability.

Our achievements demonstrate Kumon to be a trusted, dependable brand, with Instructors and staff who are dedicated to improving learning outcomes for children. Kumon Instructors collect and observe data specific to each child’s learning situation by reviewing their completion time, accuracy, ability to correct mistakes and motivation levels. With this information, Instructors are able to identify which worksheet is best suited for each child to study next.

This means Kumon Instructors can support each student to study at a level that is just right for that child. At this level, students who need to build on foundational concepts are supported. Those who can be challenged by more complex work are extended. Our students progress at their own pace, not bound by age and school grade.

In tandem with expert guidance from Kumon Instructors – who provide individualised study plans, provide regular progress updates, and support students to develop self-learning ability – we firmly believe that our step-by-step worksheets are the best way to develop students’ calculation and reading ability.

Thank you to all our Kumon students, parents and Instructors. We could not have made it this far without you. We look forward to supporting even more students to pursue their potential for the next 40 years and beyond.
