A+ Students Logol

A+ Students was established in 2005 and rebranded in 2013.

A+ Students is a Japanese method of education that teaches children as young as 2 ½ (30 months) to solve complex arithmetic problems by playing with educational toys like the Soroban and our A+Play Maths range of educational toys. A⁺Students is powerful brain development! A+Students improves concentration and boosts self-confidence, improves intelligence and creates a love for Maths.

In the programme, we help children to develop both their left and right brain capabilities. At the same time A+Students aims at creating a love for Maths. A+Students enbles learners to “see” Maths.A+Students is much more than a mathematics course, it will also heighten the skill level that learners need throughout various learning areas like:

  • comprehension
  • concentration
  • the ability to listen and pay attention
  • creativity and problem-solving

Our approach is “learning through play”. Our lessons are interactive, physical and greate fun. The maximum class size is 7 learners per 45min or 1 hour lessons.

Currently, we have 160 teachers who are franchisees/master sensei’s and who represent the A+ Students program from 630 teaching facilities. The retail store with classrooms is a new concept and the first store is in Gauteng. Break even was achieved in the first month. There have always been challenges with finding the suitable and permanent teaching facilities together with being able to retail the extensive range of educational toys effectively, hence the decision to open retail stores which will enhance the retail sales as well as having custom built classrooms which lends itself to more effective teaching.

Parents can also drop off their children for classes whilst catching up with a little shopping.
