The Ruiru Study Centre was established in 2020, after numerous requests from the community for a Kumon Centre close to their homes and schools.
The centre is strategically located just 20 minutes away from the Nairobi CBD. We are based in the peaceful, ultra-modern Mitundu Thika Road Chambers, just beside Gate C of Thika Road Mall. The building provides a well secured parking yard that is easily accessible from both the main road and service roads. The building provides around the clock security both inside the actual building as well as within the compound. The study centre itself is a conducive environment that supports peaceful learning.
The study centre aims for each child to become an independent, advanced learner, with a positive attitude towards study. The unique Kumon Programmes pursue the potential of each child, developing their ability and nurturing their independence. Our centre welcomes children between the ages of 3 to 18 years.
Once the child comes to the centre, we come together and help the child develop their ability to the maximum. Our highly trained staff assist each child while at the centre, closely monitoring their progress and enabling them to acquire knowledge above their current school grade level, thereby instilling confidence in them. The environment created is one where the child is able to express him/herself safely, and they are therefore willing and able to do more.
During sessions, the parents and guardians are able to wait in the waiting area, enjoy a walk, see to car care or visit the Thika Road Mall with its numerous entertainment facilities that are at their disposal.
You are welcome to make contact with us, and to come and enjoy this unique experience at our Kumon Centre.
My name is Mary Kimemia, and I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Economics and Chinese. While searching for a position, I came across the opportunity to become a Kumon Instructor.
From a young age, I was a mentor to children, and loved being a part of their growth. I am a patient person, and I am always amazed at the things that children achieve when they put their minds to it. I decided to become a Kumon Instructor so that I could continue to be a part of developing children’s abilities. I continue to be amazed when students are able to do things on their own, which they were not able to do before, by working through the Kumon Programmes.
When a child is able to figure out a new concept independently it is such a joy for me, and with Kumon, I get to experience this all the time.

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 but 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.
